The Night Writer
I always sit down to write a post and end up writing something totally different. This time is no different.
I was going to write about how Ben is always dirty. He is the one kid who you could tell to go take a bath and somehow he comes out with more dirt on him.
How does this happen, by the way?
But, instead, I am writing about how I don’t ever write what I plan to write. Sometimes I don’t because I feel it comes across too harsh. Sometimes it sounds dumb so I delete it. Most of the time, however, I just can’t get my thoughts down well enough for them to make sense on paper – or on my computer screen. Whichever, I usually start over again and write something completely different than what I originally intended.
I find myself coming up with great writing topics at night – usually while reading my Bible – and as I am falling asleep I am running an entire post through my head. However, when I get up in the morning and try to tap out the post it doesn’t sound quite as thrilling as it did the night before.
I heard a lady say once that she always got up and wrote when things like that happened to her. She said she’d be up for hours in the middle of the night writing – and doing it well.
I’m not sure my husband would be up for me blogging at 2 in the morning. I’m not sure my kids would benefit from that the next day, either.
Just so y’all know -
I am an extremely talented writer!
But only late at night.
When I don’t write because I need to sleep.
