Less than One Minute

A little is better than nothing.

And maybe better than a lot.

Right now, I have five minutes before putting on warm clothes and my shoes and walking over to my new house to let the electrician in.

Shit, minute two.

Are five minutes enough to get anything good accomplished? I could get my stuff on now and go, intent on writing later today, but I know better. Writing is like working out.

Minute four. I’m at peace with it now.

What I write is not as important as the fact that I’m writing something. Because now, after taking you with me on this silly little writing stunt, I can say “today, I was a writer.” Working out, eating well, it’s the same thing.

Accumulating days of a little is better than nothing, and even maybe a lot.

Minute five. I’m out!
