This is what I said to myself today immediately before noon.

...don't punish yourself if your output is less than what you had planned. Life is full of beautiful inconveniences that keep us from achieving our short-term goals. Remind yourself that you can make up for your deficit tomorrow and turn off the computer for the night. Writing + Thinking for writing is a wonderful, yet sometimes, very hard thing to do. Often it is very easy to not "make the time" to write and nobody is going to motivate you. You have to motivate yourself(most of the time). It is an extraordinarily rewarding pursuit. Yet sometimes it can be extremely challenging as well. It is just putting words down on paper and you have been doing this since the age of four(?). So don’t worry about anything and just write. The only way to get good at it, as with anything else, is to actually do it.

take a few days off.. go to an island or anywhere u can rent a chalet or something.

then forbid yourself from swtiching your hand phone on or any other types of communications.

Enjoy the scenery.. wake up early and start jotting down first things that comes into your mind..

don't read back what u have written until u get back home.

Faizal,

Bukan kah Jiwa berkait rapat dgn insan? tanpa jiwa insan hanyalah seperti robot!

Ironman sekali pun ada Jiwa.. Robocop pun ada Jiwa... lol
