Looking for the just the right time to write? Try again.
“There isn’t a perfect time to begin writing.”
Have you heard this before? Most writers have. Thing is perfect timing is elusive and can hardly be anticipated.
When I look back, I realize that my writing journey led me to many opportunities, yet I passed them up because I was convinced it wasn’t the proper time. If you think you should hold off writing until your child starts school, or your child graduates from grade school, or your child heads off to college you’ll find there will always be reasons to postpone writing.
So, stop stalling, don’t wait until everything is just right; pick up a pen open a blank page and fill up the empty space with words.
Don’t be afraid, just write!
