I should be writing

by tamarjacobson

Lately, whatever I do, I am thinking, "I should be writing."

  • In the shower
  • Shopping for food
  • Going to the movies with great friends
  • Watching television
  • Taking a walk in the park
  • Brushing Ada
  • Sitting on the chair, closing my eyes, and listening to my son playing the piano
  • Cooking
  • E-mailing friends
  • Grading papers
  • E-mailing students
  • Sleeping
  • Dreaming
  • Waking
  • Speaking on the phone
  • Drinking coffee
  • Playing Scrabble at Pixie Pit or Scrabulous or even on a real board with my son
  • Driving
  • Listening to music
  • Blogging
  • Teaching
  • Meeting
  • Singing
  • Cleaning the house
  • Doing the laundry
  • Watering plants
  • Reading the NY Times
  • Checking out Facebook friends
  • Sitting and staring at the oak tree
  • Eating pie: pumpkin, cherry or lemon meringue
  • Having brunch with great friends

The only time I do not think, "I should be writing"

… is …

… when I am writing.
