How the Office of Letters and Light helped me start (and stay) writing:


I’m sorry, but "How the Office of Letters and Light helped me start (and stay) writing" has moved here.  
I apologize for any inconvenience, irritability, or bodily harm this may have caused. 

My new website for The Cat’s Cradle is http://kvclements.com.  

Thank you, and happy reading!  


  1. My day today is meant to be spent on chores, and I lazily chose 2:45pm as the appointed time of chore commencement. So, I decided I would just chill until then. After all, I woke up not feeling well, and hadn't slept very well to boot.

    Reading this blog was supposed to be part of my relaxation. I figured I'd catch up on these. However, after reading this, I feel an overwhelming itch to write, one that I'm amazed I continually ignore, forcing it back into my mind until I can sufficiently distract myself from it. Why do I not just heed the call? I'm always happier for it, and it NEEDS TO GET DONE. (Perhaps it's that last bit that keeps me from doing it- a holdover from my *own* school days... even if I enjoy doing something, the fact that it NEEDS doing fills me with anxiety, so I run from the source of that anxiety... even though just settling in to write is enough to make the stress go away.)

    Long story short, I'm getting off the interwebz now, and settling in to write until it's time for necessary chores to commence.

    So, thanks for this! Really trying to work writing back into my daily routine... I'll just read this the next time I want to procrastinate, and half-way through, I won't be able to contain myself anymore. Happy writing...

    1. I'm really happy to hear that this entry made you want to write! Yes, I don't understand why we keep fighting the urge to write when it comes...usually because it comes at an inconvenient time, I suppose...

      Yes, routine. We need routine. That's the only way we'll ever get anything done.
