Back on Track


After beginning a new habit of early morning writing in the third quarter of 2014, the habit fizzled out early this year – after almost six months. A busy work schedule made it necessary to give up the writing habit. Ironically, it was my commitment to blog daily that kept me thinking often of that fulfilling habit. I didn’t force myself, but I knew in time I would get right back on track.

And I am. I started slowly, first squeezing in five to ten minutes of writing before I began my day. Then gradually I found more and more time and now, I am back, writing in my journals ( I have several ), writing poetry, and prose poetry. On some days, when there’s more time, I also do some sketches with colored pencils and markers. It feels great to be back on track.

Once again, writing ideas flow and I look forward to getting up each morning to do word play. Life is good.

  1. I don’t know how you do it. Morning is so hectic I can’t imagine writing then. I just start working earlier and earlier as it is.
