I was in a play in the 6th grade and ended up with the lead role. I thought I was reading for a small speaking part.

It’s amazing how many lines and songs I remember from a play I was in almost 25 years ago. There’s a phrase from a song in that I play that often pops in my head.

Time keeps ticking away, keeps ticking away first tomorrow becomes today. Then snap, it’s yesterday because time keeps ticking yes, tick-tick-ticking, yes. Time keeps ticking away.

And that’s one of the main reasons that I don’t write.


Not because there’s a lack of it, but because I don’t dedicate any of the time I have to writing. As busy as I think I am, I’m not so busy that I can’t find the time to do something that I enjoy.

I know I read a statement similar to this while trolling the Internet to find out how to get over a writer’s slump.

And I know I put that principle to practice…in my head.

Guess it’s time to put words to action.


  1. Finding the time, or rather making the time, is one of the most difficult aspects of writing. There are challenges to getting what is in your head and your heart out to the world but... when you do, the reward is fantastic.

  2. I had that song stuck in my head so I did a google search and your blog was the only site that had those lyrics. Funny thing is that I too sang that song in the 6th grade at Patterson Elementary School...

    Those were the days!
    My how time does keep tickin' away.

  3. I was in that same play. I'm 25 now also. What was the name of the play? I was Father Time!
