Saturday and feeling the urgency

It is a gorgeous summer day and what do you think I want to do? I want to write. I really do. I'll have to go out in a bit to pick up our weekly box of vegies and the globe and mail (though I really wonder why I keep reading the arrogant thing) and I have to take Hoagy for a stroll (yesterday we saw two pileated wood-peckers!) and maybe, just maybe, I'll go down the hill and jump in the chuck - but really - I want to write. I am so close to getting this and the voices are in my head and I must listen!
And you?

Oh you MUST write!! When the muse strikes it must not be ignored... Good luck

Rosalind Adam said...

I'm with Pat. Write! You can go walking any time.

Don't ignore the urge - write.

KarenG said...

I agree with Diane. Write first and do the rest later!

I wrote! Then I walked Hoagy - that isn't an extra - it is a must. And now I might write some more. I don't know what is up with me - I've written 65 thousand words in a month and a half and fifty new poems (all on fb) - I just feel it!

Jan - So glad you are taking the time to listen to Madame Muse!! It sounds like a wonderful weekend!

I'm hoping you wrote AND enjoyed the time you were out. I had lunch with my sister and we chatted about everything we needed to catch up on. Lots of fun. I'm slowly recharging.

Margot - I am still listening to her! I wrote two thousand yesterday and also figured out a very tricky plot point that has been keeping me up nights. Today I'll forge ahead with that.
Carol - I did! Oh, how I wish I could have lunch with my sister but I'll call her today and have a good long chat. My family is scattered across Canada - sister, step-mother, nieces and nephew in Ontario, niece in Alberta, brother and sis-in-law in North West Territories, nephew in Australia. Argh!
