Be open to new possibilities every day

Today I watched someone in my household in the kitchen and he knocked off the lid from the plastic garbage can, the kind where you step on a pedal and the lid pops up.

“Make sure you fix it," I said.

Then I watched as he placed the lid on top and then, with a little tap on the far end, everything was snapped back into place.

I sat there stunned, mostly because I hadn’t thought of that before and it seemed like such a better solution than what I had been doing.

What’s the point? Well, there was an easier way of doing something that I had not even considered. It took somebody with an open mind to try something easier and discover that it worked.

I’m glad I was around to see this. After all, I do like new or different ways of doing things, especially if it saves time.

The Easy Way

A writer has a lot of challenges. In addition to intense competition, a writer has his or own self to motivate. It helps a lot if you can find easy ways of getting your writing or content completed.

One easy way is to pick a favorite topic and give yourself the freedom to write about it any time you want. For example, one of my favorite pastimes is watching old film noir movies, like the ones with an independent strong woman in a tough situation with people who have questionable motives.

For me, being able to include a discussion about film noir, in this story or another one, is a wonderful treat for myself. And that makes it easy for me to write.

Another method of doing writing the easy way is to make it part of your routine. That’s right. Make it part of every day and soon your body and mind will get used to it and be prepared for the task.

Have you ever seen pets or animals move around, pace, arrange their blankets, and do other activity as they prepare for sleep? That’s because they have an established routine that is important for them.

If you set up a weekly writing time for yourself and your writing, you will make things easy because it has become part of your regular life.

My advice is to make your writing time as easy as possible. If music helps, then grab some headphones and start the tunes. If you like it quiet, then let your housemates know about this.

If easy means having a coffee or cup of tea nearby, then more power to you. A little beverage often goes a long way.

Do whatever it takes to make sure you are having a good time as a writer. Make writing easy and fun every chance you get.
