Seizing the Habit

I wake before five most days. I write every day. Even if it’s only a few lines, notes, or seeds to feed more lines and larger pieces other days. I work a full week and my evenings fill quickly with daily demands, just like everyone else. I try to split my weekends between words and family time. It’s no easy task. There are so many days I would rather just play with the family or do nothing at all. (Though even they have noticed I’m much more pleasant if I have gotten in my daily word fix). I am fortunate they support the time I spend with words. I’ve only had this steady momentum since last November, but it’s taken me far too long to seize this habit and I’m not going to ease up now.

Whatever your passion, whatever you medium, I encourage you to do the same. Find something to create or share every day. Notice things. Put them through pencils, pens and paint. Take pictures. These things will fuel your creations and if you choose to share, maybe you will encourage others to do the same. We all need this.

“If I don’t practice for even one day, I can tell the difference when I next cradle the cello in my arms. If I fail to practice for two days, my closest friends can also tell the difference. If I don’t practice for three days, the whole world knows the difference.”
