Not In The Mood

sols_5-years_w1I'm writing every day in March as part of the Slice of Life Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers. Stop by!

I’m not in the mood to write at this very moment. Yet I am, diligently, sitting at my computer and tapping away at the keys. As Jane Yolen told me (and I ignored for years), writers need to get their Butts In the Chair. I need to write my Newbery Update. I need to jot down my thoughts about Graceling for my Book Buddy. I’ll do these things, and I’ll enjoy them. Just not this very moment.

Ideas flutter like fireflies.
I gaze at them
Wistfully.

Energy depleted -
I capture them in a jar.

Perhaps tomorrow
They’ll light the way.
