Excessive Use of Force

While surfing around today I stumbled on a thread at in which writers answered the question: How Do You Make Yourself Sit and Actually Write?

The most alarming response came from Michael A. Stelzner of Stelzner Consulting. He suggested getting up one hour earlier each day and devoting that time exclusively to writing.

Hmmm. Sleep? Write? Sleep? Write? As you can see, this concept pushed some buttons. I'll have to give it further thought. Think I'll sleep on it.

My schedule is so busy that I actually get up at 4 a.m. sometimes to write. I'm a teacher, so I'm looking forward to summer, when I can set aside several hours a day for writing.

Once I get into the habit of setting aside time, it's no big deal. My challenge is re-establishing the habit once I've broken it ... which happens far more often than I'd like to admit!
