Sometimes, all you need to do is write. Sometimes, that’s really what you NEED.
As some of you already know, I’m a home-schooled high school student. That means that I sit upstairs at my desk for several hours a day doing my school work. And let me tell you: sometimes that can be pretty boring.
As I write this, I should be doing school work. But I’m starting to realize that sometimes, we just can’t do the things that we should do…unless we do the things we want to do. That, or we learn to want to do the things we should do. Yeah, that’s complicated!
Sometimes, on days like this, when my mind is bored with school, I just need to write. There’s no other explanation, nothing else that will get the gears rolling. It takes imagination to do school, and even more to be homeschooled. Writing is that spark that starts the fire; the fuel for my flames. I can’t operate unless I have that sense of excitement and imagination that writing gives me.
So I’m writing right now. Because sometimes, that’s just what you have to do.
