Badgering: The Viagra Edition

Well, fellow writers,

What have you written for me lately? What do you need? What would get you back in that chair–assuming you aren’t there (or you are there but you aren’t writing). Tiny badger is considering his options.

Option One: throwing tiny but sharp objects at you if you leave your desk. Don’t underestimate tiny badger’s throwing arm.

Option Two: roping you to your chair. Tiny badger rope is akin to dental floss. Do you really want to be tied up in that? Alone with your internet connection severed?

Option Three: gathering up entire tiny badger family to shine their pointy teeth in your direction hoping you’ll get the message–their teeth are sharp and they like gnawing! They find makers of lame excuses especially tasty.

Option Four: dropping your computer on you while you sleep and keeping you pinned under it for a week.

Option Five is still under review.

Look. Remember that moment in your life when you wrote something you loved? Remember that love of a book that made you say–I want to be a writer? Remember? Don’t make tiny badger drag out evidence of old lovers just to prove that it can happen. Come on. You won’t love your novel if you don’t show up for it. Show the love! Show the passion! Your novel is sitting there missing you and wishing you’d just show it a little scrap of love. Come on now. One night. That’s it. And if the fires don’t burn brightly after that–try harder.

That’s it. Tiny badger is going to invent viagra for writers. One pill and you can write all night long.

I think I should end this here.

  1. Great ending.

    You definitely should sell tiny badger family. You could make a mint. Imagine all the wannabe writers or actual writers who just can’t WRITE.

    Makers of lame excuses as badger treats. lol.

    I was just talking to an old friend about her non writing habits, and I think I’ll send your link along to her.

    Viagra for writers. Yup.

  2. rowena, tiny badger family was a whim, but now I love that tiny family. Thanks for passing this link along. If I can’t get my own novel written, then getting somebody else to write theirs is the next best thing.

  3. Hello – glad to find your blog too! You’re so right about the ‘feeling resistant because it’s getting difficult’ bit, I know what needs to be done… (carry on!).
    Look forward to keeping up with your writing here.
    Warmest,
    Fiona

  4. I was thinking I might like some of that viagra for writers but I’m not sure I have the stamina to write for a whole night, even with chemical help.

    Mind you, given my current performance it would probably just give me an hour of writing power and that I could surely do with.

  5. I’m the old friend who received the link to this page from Rowena. Oh no, that was passive voice, wasn’t it?? That’s it, I quit. No, I don’t quit, because I am very afraid of those badgers. And when I finish reviewing Urbanism, Socialism, and Women’s Rights for a quick lesson this afternoon with a sick student, I may have run out of lame excuses. The laundry’s done and even the zit has gone away, Rowena.

  6. oh my this made me laugh. 🙂
    ANd just what I needed.
    I came up with a million and one reasons why NOT to write today.
    Then just sitting down, writing, the answer is in the doing.
