I’ve been thinking a lot about writing lately. I miss it. I miss being able to articulate an issue and explain myself and my way of thinking. For those who know me, you know I can sometimes get too caught up in my fervor or “rightness” to make a good, concise argument in real-time. Facebook, Twitter, and the like don’t work well, either. They are so short, and seem to be meant for broad-based communication in an overly concise manner.
I write well, when I have the motivation and when I find the time. I guess that’s my biggest issue right now. I have the motivation for most of the day. But for most of the day, I don’t have time to sit down and write. And when that time finally does come (at the end of the day when the kids are finally in bed), I have lost that motivation. Or better put, that motivation has given in to weariness. Exhaustion hits me and my mind and body say “watch a quick TV show and then go to bed”. And recently, that thinking has won out.
I’ve got to change that.
The truth of the matter is that I have topics written up in my little virtual notebook, just waiting to be expanded upon and given the proper treatment. Somehow, that motivation has to learn to defeat the weariness, the exhaustion.
If anybody figures out how to make sure that happens, please let me know 🙂
