I Wrote Some Words Today

And I liked it.

Don’t laugh. Sometimes putting thoughts into words is hard work. It wasn’t tonight, but it’s been very hard lately.

Oh yeah, I’ve got all the excuses. Actually other people make them for me.

“You’ve been through so much change lately.”

“You’re very busy.”

I guess. Who isn’t busy though? And when is life free of some kind of change?

Truth is I just hadn’t felt like writing. And if I wanted to find the time, it wouldn’t have been that difficult.


So, what changed today?

Not a ton. I made a commitment to the Lord at the start of the year to get back to a regular writing routine. I’d had long enough to give my excuses. It was time to get back to work.

Today was extra fun though. I forgot about all the rules and simply started tapping away at the keyboard.

Lo and behold, I had me about 1,200 words. I wrote a scene I’d been mulling in my head for months, and got it done.

So, go write a few words, Writer. Do it tonight and tomorrow and the next day. You might find you like it too 🙂

About Will Ramirez

Will Ramirez grew up with a love for God's Word and fantastical worlds. The first passion led him to pastor Calvary Chapel Lighthouse for the the last 17 years. The second led him to create the world of Adme, the setting for his coming debut novel, an epic fantasy titled Soul Yearning. He lives in Central Florida with his bride of seventeen years and their four children. Since 2010, he's been a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and serves on the leadership team of Word Weavers of Orlando. He is currently working on the second book of the Godslayer series as well as The Unspoken, book one of a dark fantasy trilogy. In the land of Adme, powerful beings rule as deities and compete with one another for followers. But when a young priest is revealed as the prophesied godslayer, the pantheon unites to destroy him.

  1. You know when I want to write, Will? When I have had a day, and I’m laying in bed, bone-tired, too exhausted to actually get up and do anything about it, and THEN the words come! And–I have to get my sleep, so I think “I’ll remember this for later.” But I never do. 😛

  2. That’s great, Will. Even when I don’t “feel like” writing, I have often found that just showing up makes a big difference. Once I get my fingers on the keyboard, things start flowing. And if they don’t, it’s usually typing out the stuff cluttering my mind (into a journal) that clears it enough to let the creative juices flow again.
