Fear is (almost) gone.

But I have . . .
Priorities
Kids
Students
Responsibilities
To do lists
Running
Laundry
Cleaning
Dishes
More laundry
Playing
Laughing
Reading
Dinner
Responding
Shopping
Garbage
Bills
Errands

Oh. Me?
I come last.
Time goes by.
Life goes on.

What to write?
What could I possibly share?
I dunno.  <sigh>  What did I do today?

Wait.  
     Wait.  
          Wait.

Oh!  I have an idea -- Nah.
Maybe something will come to me tomorrow.

What's your excuse for not writing today?

Check out Ruth's inspiration at the TWT blog: {Discover. Play. Build.}
She gives us permission to be free of our excuses and just write!  Thanks Ruth!

  1. Nice to hear from you again, Michelle. Just an FYI-I always like what you have to say, like this poem today, filled with laundry! We do get busy don't we, even while on vacation I can fill my time with so many, many other things!

  2. Ditto Linda's comment. Nice to hear from you again. I'm in class today, but will definitely be writing tonight. I loved your list of what was holding you back--tomorrow when you write out your to-do list, be sure to put writing at the top!

  3. Glad you wrote today -- an a poem to boot. Looking forward to reading more of your words this summer.

  4. Love this! I too have a huge laundry list of things "holding" me back from writing. I need to get on it!
