I bought this button at a flea marked many years ago. I still like its simple message.
There is nothing special or elaborate about writing. It doesn’t take any expensive equipment and it can be done almost anywhere.
Yet some days may go by and nothing will be written. Life will get in the way. I think to myself I need to write about this when I have more time. But if I am not careful it will fade away.
There have been times when I have looked back at my journals for a specific event and found out sadly that I did not take the time to write about it in detail or even at all.
I think to myself, why didn’t I write about that?
My life is in the details of my everyday world. I need to make space to write about it as much as I can.
No one will put that pen in my hand. There is no ceremony or recognition banquet to go to after I take the time to write. No one cares if I write or not.
But writing is important to me.
That’s why I keep this button.
Just do it. Write.
