Carving time for writing or football?

For almost four years, I’ve written my blog daily. Occasionally, I write additionally on other projects. So, I’ve established a writing habit. It is important to establish this as a writer. It’s been relatively easy to write each day. I have a desk, a laptop, and ideas. I am an efficient typist.

But, when prompted what my day would hold today, I responded that I wanted to spend some time on non-blog writing. It’s almost three o’clock in the afternoon and I have not done it yet. I have to ask myself if I am avoiding it. I’ve chosen to sew, to take ornaments off of our Christmas tree, and now watch a little football. The last activity amazes me!

On the T.V. is the AFC wildcard game with the Indianapolis Colts and the Buffalo Bills. I lived in Buffalo for a total of ten years in my younger days. As I’ve written before, Buffalo loves its football team. The fans are crazy about their team. And, this year has been stellar. A young, talented quarterback has led this team to a winning season. Whether it ends today or not, still remains to be seen.

I guess I’m making excuses. I should be writing. I should be working on my poetry pdf files. And, still I sit. I hope Buffalo wins. It would be nice for this team and even nicer for the fans that have waited loyally so long for a winning post season. It would make my friends there happy! And, maybe, just maybe, me too!

  1. Wow it’s amazing that you can blog every day for more than four years. I myself write every day, but the topics differ. But I guess what’s most important is that we practice the habit daily though. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
