Why WIF?

Why Writing in Flow?

So my next-to last thought was naming this blog Aaaaaargh! Because I woke up in the wee hours of the morning, totally inspired, planning to start this blog and name it BeWriteBack - appropriate. And cute.

And taken. Okay. WritusInterruptus. Taken. WriteNow. Taken.

And what makes it worse, is all of these great ideas have been taken by people who wrote a blog or three, or in one case, ooooh, seven or so, and then just up and quit. Bogarting the blog names I wanted to use. (If you don’t what know Bogarting is, ask somebody from the 70's. Or someone who has a medical marijuana card.)

I find it highly ironic that my desire to write a blog about the difficulty of writing and sticking to it is being thwarted by writers who started writing and stopped.

I mean, really. Like I’ve ever done that. (Whistling and looking at the ceiling.)

So then I thought, after pounding my head on the keyboard a bit - why not focus on the great things about writing, instead of just bitching about the frustrations?  About the way sometimes you're sitting down and the muse is cheering you on and every word just comes racing out, beautiful, strong, poignant, powerful.  The exhiliration exhilaration you feel when you're saying what you want to say, exactly the way you want to say it, and you can even spell correctly.

That's writing in flow - and that's why we write, after all.
