What time is it...IWSG





Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!


We all have an internal clock that helps us regulate the day.

Time to wake up...

Time to eat...

Time to sleep...

I have one that helps me to write. It is every time I daydream.





The only problem is the lack of time to actually write it down.
At work they tend to frown on people who take a note book out every few minutes to jot things down.

Yes I have a problem...I daydream all the time!!




Unfortunately I don't get paid to daydream at work

or do I....

  1. That's not fair. I get paid to blog. You should get paid to write.

  2. I did just post this on my lunch break, but still no pay. :-(

  3. I have thought about this a lot. I take a LOT of time to figure out what i want to write - and just as much figuring out HOW I'm going to write it.


    If I had taken all that time and spent it on thinking about making money or something, who knows what i could have done? Instead, every spare moment is spent thinking about writing.


    It's something I sort of feel like I have to do, but... man, does it ever take up a lot of my life!

  4. When I write it is by the seat of my pants. If I think too much I tend to bog down in the mire of self doubt.

  5. I wish I was paid to daydream, but some guys like Einstein and Steve Jobs did and changed the world. Maybe someday David.

  7. My boss has the nickname The Little Chihuahua.
    All I would get would be yip, yip, yip!

  8. Instead of a notebook, maybe you could send yourself an Email or type it in a Word document. Then it looks more like you're doing actual work.

  9. I use a lot of Excel, that might be feasible.
    As long as it doesn't cut into my bathroom breaks. ;-)

  10. Gosh i think the first one is me. I wish I had the energy of ironman, then I could live the dream...read, write and comment all day long. The day just isn't long enough, lol.

  11. daydreaming is crucial for writing. At least, I think it is. It's where I get the best ideas! But if I don't write them down, I forget them. Oh, I like Pat's suggestion to write yourself an email!

  12. That might be better than fighting it in an Excel cell! ;-)

  13. The AVENGERS movie needs to be out already! It has been awhile since I ventured off to the theater.

  14. I definitely have that internal wake-up clock whether I need to get up or not. That's one clock I wouldn't mind shutting off now and then. I daydream a lot and since I'm retired I don't guess that it matters, but I wish I could do better at using my daydreams to kick my writer's butt into gear.

    You keep dream and keep writing. And if you're still working and taking home a paycheck then keep doing that for as long as you can or need to.

  15. Thanks Arlee. I write for my own personal therapy, but if I could get paid to daydream that would be nice?! ;-)

  16. Someone once said they could put time in a bottle. I still can't find the store that sells them! ;-)

    Day dreaming is my specialty too. I'm a university teach who is supposed to be serious and NOT day dreaming. But you know me, I can't help myself nor would I want to. Dream on!

  18. Dreaming can become contagious. ;-)

  19. I feel like I have my best ideas when I have the least time to act upon them.

  20. Life has a funny way of taking time...;-)

    So what... It's not like we need a cure, right? Right?
