Still dark as night out, as I roll over from my recent slumber, but don’t stay there long. As my eyes adjust to the little light that is this morning for the first time in hours, I am possessed and my mind is working over time with thoughts of what I want to write.
I do what comes oh so naturally to me by rolling back over, swiping my iPhone on, open up my notepad and the sweet release of words come pouring out of me once again.
If you are a writer then you might get this, but if you aren’t then you might very well be shaking your head as to why I would forgo sleep (especially if you are like me and not a morning person) to drain my head of all my thoughts.
Someone very wise (I think when they read this they will know who they are), once mentioned that in order to be a writer, you have to keep on writing.
So, that is what I do as am vigorously typing away all my current thoughts to hopefully be read soon.
But still others might still be questioning this.
I write, therefore I am.
Essentially, I couldn’t fake this if I tried and why would I want to?
Yet, still the happiest time will find me scrawling my pondering reflections – morning, noon or night.
The pessimist is probably still looking for more of a reason.
For me – this is the one thing that is truly mine no questions asked.
However, it is this and still so much more.
I write…To simply remember it all.
I write…For family who read, support me proudly always.
I write…For loyal friends/readers who continually return for more over and over.
I write…For new readers/moms who possibly will stumble upon my writing in the future and find that they aren’t alone.
I write…To make an honest living doing what I do best and love.
I write, therefore I am – morning, noon and night!
