Finding the Time

Time. It's one of the most challenging pieces needed to weave a fascinating story. Even though all one has to do is type or scribble or memorize a certain line or bit of dialogue, Time is a necessity that every writer must have.

Without Time, a story will never have be able to spread its wings and soar above the tallest of buildings, but run over hot coals like a toddler whom is still learning to stand up on their own two feet.

All writers need the Time to sit down and plan the story out, even if just a little, and for working adults this may be nearly impossible with a potential family, or just going out with friends or seeing a movie and paying bills. It's stressful to think that the Time one could be writing and expressing oneself and thinking of grand ideas could come to bite one in the ass, yes the ass, when one should be doing more important and critical things. However, if a story is brewing in one's head, and boggling on the mind, that itself is very important.

So, the moral of the story is, if you have a story, spend the Time to write it down because you might end up regretting it later!
