Tactful Clothing

A confession:

Sometimes putting my feet up and playing video games or watching tv is so much more attractive than sitting at the desk and writing for a few hours. Whereas video games – my nemesis – are easier to dive into and occupy my time, misled by the idea that they are fulfilling in their own way, writing takes a certain inspiration that is sometimes absent, or even worse, overshadowed. I am always thinking of my book and what I need to write – it’s unavoidable. However, sometimes being imaginative seems so much more cumbersome than playing a nicely crafted narrative from the couch. It’s despicable, I know.

I have recently started using a certain tactic to avoid the dark room where my xbox calls to me. I wear shoes in the house. It’s a simple remedy and has so far proved effective. I am one of those people who is sickened by shoes on the furniture, especially the sofa and the bed, so by wearing my shoes in the house I avoid certain temptations.

I’ve been writing for two hours today and I have only untied one shoe. Progress: it’s a beautiful thing.

Quickly, quickly... take your seat. Our storyteller is about to begin. Shhhh. Listen... His pipes are fluting emotions of myth and fable, but don't be fooled by fantasia for there are truths hidden within his unworldly tellings. We're drifting now... back in time to a world only he remembers.
