Writing Exercise of the Week--Waiting for Inspiration?

This exercise only takes 10 minutes. Try it right now.
First, list 5 reasons you don't take time for your writing. Anything that comes to mind--other people's demands on your schedule? not enough privacy? feeling stuck? eating too much ice cream?
Remember: write whatever you think of--no matter how small or silly.
Pick one of these reasons. Write 3 antidotes to it.
Let these 3 antidotes simmer in your writing brain today. Imagine them like lone trees on the horizon--signifying an oasis ahead. How might you bring one of them into your life?
What brings you inspiration in your writing life? Post a comment below.
