Inertia - Or Why I Must Keep Writing

Sometimes I write because I love it. Sometimes I write because the words are straining for release. Sometimes I write because I'm afraid to stop.

If I stop - if I let it go one day, it turns to two, then three. Then it's been weeks and I don't know how to start again.

If I stop, and my stories just become files on my hard drive, all the hours spent toiling over these words mean nothing. I. Must. Keep. Going.


  1. This is so true! Just getting it out and doing something EVERY DAY, even if some days it's just a very little thing--that can work wonders.

    Personally, I don't feel quite right when I stop writing.

  2. It's so easy to skip days if I've already previously skipped days, so I totes agree!

  3. Exactly. I feel the same way 100% Jenny.

  4. I have been stuck on the I can't write motto for literally months, and I don't know why. It sucks. I really need to get back into the rhythm of writing again so that I won't ever stop again like this.

    I'm glad that you're sticking through to the end. Congrats.

    1. You can do it! Even if it's just once sentence. Get back on your computer and write!
