Today's prompt asks us to think about what makes us not want to write, what makes it difficult to sit down and create. There are so many things in life that can make me busy, take my attention, that I started to get overwhelmed just thinking about it all. I had to take a step back and I realized it all boils down to what I make time for, and then it just came to me. So, here's a haiku about what distracts me and takes up my time.

Call My Name

Work, tv, and books
Call my name, demand my time.
And yet, I must write.

I think that's the sign of a "real" writer. That urge TO write. It doesn't matter how many distractions you have, you just know unless you get some words on a page the day just won't be what it's supposed to be. Nicely done!
