Just Write

There is something about writing that draws me to keep at it. There are thoughts that just spill out on to the page. I didn’t have them before and I don’t know where they came from. It is like the “muse” knows I am an empty enough vessel, that words and ideas can just pass through.

But here is the thing. I want this. I want to sit down and just write. I want to wake up early with a cup of coffee, sit down and write.

This is the perfect use of my time.

What that means is thoughts for me seek expression, for others they seek action. The best action I can take on information, or ideas is to share them. It isn’t to go out and start a company or a nonprofit. It is to sit down and write, it is to influence others more capable and built for those kinds of things. It is to be the “muse’s” megaphone and in that I do my part. My life feels like I am on the right track when I do this.

If you are like me, then the only choice you have is to just write. So do it. If not, don’t worry about it, there is something for you out there.
