I have ten minutes to write a blog.
What should I write about?
I could write about what I could do with these ten minutes besides write a blog.
I could almost jog a whole mile.
I could make a pot of tea.
I could knit about ten-fifteen rows of a scarf.
I could read a chapter of a book.
I could make an omelette.
I could take a short power nap.
I could take a few moments and appreciate the warm sunshine on this cold morning.
I could write a note to a friend.
I could make a list of possible blog topics so I won't find myself last-minute blogging again.
I could go to my room and try in vain to do something else to control my out of control hair.
I could make some toast. Twice.
It doesn't take a lot of time to do things, really. I think the key to regaining my passion for my writing is going to be found minute by minute. I often think that if I don't have hours to spend on a task, then I shouldn't do it. But today, I plan on giving at least ten minutes over to my old friends: the stories I've allowed to marinate in the bowels of my jump drive for far too long.
What can you do with ten minutes?
