When It’s Hard to Write

It’s hard to write when you’re on a bus, holding a notebook in your lap.

It’s hard to write when you’re so tired that you can barely keep your eyes open and your brain feels like it’s melting.

It’s hard to write when you feel like you have nothing to say, or at least nothing new.

It’s hard to write when you’re not feeling well and your hand is shaking as you hold the pen or type.

It’s hard to write when you’re in a noisy and dark bar.

It’s hard to write when someone’s watching over your shoulder.

And, apparently, it’s hard to write when you’re on vacation and spending precious time with people you rarely see.

  1. It’s hard to write . . . especially when one shouldn’t be writing ;^|

    Enjoy your time, Slightly . . . the keyboard and pen are always within reach–people rarely are.

  2. Oh man, it is SO hard to write with someone watching. I hate it! In fact, I hate doing anything while I’m being watched. Cooking, cleaning, mowing the lawn. I get very self-conscious!
