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.
