No structure, big problem

I’m a writer.

We operate in silence. in solitary. in fact, we like this. because as soon as someone interrupts us, we are done. Have to start ALL over again. from the beginning.

We are self starters. i mean, who is gonna start us? we, the people, who are here by ourselves.

Lonely? not us. we like it this way. usually. but it’s not as easy as it seems. have you noticed?

Creating a structure for yourself is a monumental effort. Not a soul in the house to tell you, “GET to WORK!” Nobody holding you accountable. No one demanding billable hours.

Just you. and the screen. or rather you and your thoughts before a screen.

So many have said, “you’re so lucky! You have no one telling you what to do!” no annoyance. no interruption. Pure, you-time. Well, now we all have you-time. Whatchu doing with your you-time?

I’m constantly looking for mine. Not kidding, it’s a 24 hour search.

And all that unstructured time you used to envy me for? all that time that I was free to spend however I wished?

Ah, now we’re all in this together. you and me and every we.

How’s that structure coming? now that we have to supply it. No structure, no problem?

No structure, big problem.

Ask a writer. we specialize in long, empty days that we fill with whatever comes. when it comes.

A lot has come.
