The Paranoid Writer

When Life Gets in the Way

Writing is like Exercise

Writing is like exercise.  You have to set up at specific time each day to do it, and then it becomes habit.  I know that if I don’t exercise, my anxiety starts to get the best of me.  It’s the same with writing.  If I don’t work on whatever project I have, then the anxiety level rises.  Like exercise, just get it done.  The hardest part with exercise is getting out the door, and that’s the same with writing.  The door becomes my next chapter, and if I can just get it started and work on the edits, then I’m good for the rest of the day.

This is one of the songs I listen to when I write.  It’s by Pearl Jam.
