This is a quote by Isabel Allende. I just read it.
I think many of my blogs are meant to help me, and maybe others, remember certain things. Whatever it is I consider important on any given day.
Of course, sometimes I just ramble, other times I rant. We all have those kind of days.
Today is one of the days I need to remind myself of something.
Let me elaborate. Clearly I’ve been catching up on writing, especially here on my blog. But would you believe me, if I told you that I use this writing to procrastinate over the writing I should actually be doing?
I find that somewhat ironic.
On the upside I am productive where my blog is concerned. On the downside I am still avoiding to write what I should rather be writing.
Catch 22 anyone?
I can’t do both in equal measure. And I am putting my efforts where they don’t belong. Not like this anyway.
Writing down my musings is so much easier than inventing characters and building a story. Or, heavens forbid, editing my NaNo novel.
If I wanted to be a full time blogger I would write more on topic (which ever topic that might be), I’d have a more purpose built and written blog.
But I don’t and I am not.
I belong into the land of story, the realm of dream.
It’s an unknown, perhaps unknowable, place. But there I must venture to find whatever only I can find there and try to bring it back. Impossible as it may seem.
Contrary to what I expected when I first started blogging, I do quite enjoy it. I am still here, after all.
So I won’t give it up, just devote a little less time to it, especially now that I feel caught up.
I’ll be back soon enough.
Until then I need to remember what it is I don’t want to forget.
Which mostly is this:
write now, worry later
