Finding Time to Write

Time, as the word of this day, is arbitrary. It goes faster when a writer concentrates on a piece, slows down any time we pay attention to it and can be used as an excuse not to write in the first place.

In my vision, time is ice blue. It slips away in attempting to grasp it and can't be pinned down.

That's why it helps to commit at least five minutes a day to capture your thoughts, dreams or visions. Sneaking up on it helps. You can put a pad and pen by your bed at night, and in the morning make writing down your dreams  or thoughts the first priority. Just five minutes a morning can corral a notebook's worth of writing within a year or less.

Soon, it will be more about the accomplishments and less about the timing.
