Reasons Not To/To Write On A Hot Summer Saturday

To write or not to write on this beautiful day?  Let me detail the pros and cons:

5 Reasons Not To Write on A Hot Summer Saturday

1.  Because it’s hot, duh.

2.  Because I want to go play.

3.  Because I have an appointment with a trainer to kill, I mean coach, me at the gym.

4.  Because I have a party to attend!.

5.  Because I’m LAZY.

5 Reasons To Write on A Hot Summer Saturday

1.  Because I’m obsessed

2.  Because I can’t seem to stay away from my computer.

3. Because Emma Jean, the protagonist of my novel is calling.  She insists her novel be finished by the end of the summer.

4.  Because the blogosphere never sleeps.

5.  Because by saying I’m writing I can get out of so many things…like paying bills.  Or doing dishes.  Or grocery shopping.

After much thought and deliberation, I have to say–writing wins!   Obviously.  Since I just wrote this post.

I can so very well relate to the fifth reason for not writing and the fourth reason for writing.

Nice chuckle-able post!


I can relate to what you’re saying but I’m not writing a novel so, I guess you have more reason to sit in front of your computer than I do. 🙂

Hi Charlotte,
First of all, I like your idea to compare. I’m not a writer, I’m a visual person and outside a lot to capture my subjects with my camera – hot weather or not. And it’s hot in Key West – almost the whole year long. I like your blog!:-))


So true, so true. And I’m feeling a bit sorry for Emma Jane. My Anne has been waiting for about six years now, poor soul. She’s lost on some hard drive on some computer we no longer own. I know she’s in hard copy somewhere on page 97, most likely hoping I’ll find her and breathe life back into her.
