Have to share this first…
So Sandi chose this as today’s song, and I wasn’t sure that I was in the mood to try and figure out what I was going to do with it. Then I realized that there are a lot of times when I’m not in the mood to write, but I stick my big ass in a chair in front of the computer, open up WordPress, and start to write. And, more often than not, something comes to me, and before I know it, I have the post written. Sometimes several posts, in fact. I’m writing this Sunday afternoon, and this is my third.
Sometimes just knowing that I have a post to do helps me get started, and sometimes, when I look at the things that I have going during the week, I know I have to try and get as much as I can done, because I know I might not feel up to it later. Wednesday, I have an appointment to get a tooth pulled, and I’m not sure how I’ll feel after that. When the doctor prescribes hydrocodone for after the surgery, I know I had better get it in gear and get the posts written for the week. So screw my mood, I have stuff to do.
And you know something? When I get started writing, it puts me in the mood to write more. The ideas for the next post come as I’m writing a post. I guess you could say I don’t write when I’m in the mood, I get into the mood when I write. Now, sometimes I’m in the mood when I sit down to write, and those times are golden. But a lot of times I’m not. It doesn’t matter. I will be when I get started.
