I go to a party. And, I am introduced as a writer. Before I know it, I got a circle of new friends. Each one telling me they got a great idea for a book. They tell me I should write their story.
Truth is dear reader, only you can write your story. Because only you know your story.
Writing a book takes talent, yes. It takes research, yes. It takes drive. It takes lash-your-butt-to-the-chair mentality and momentum to keep it there every hour of every day of every week, month, and yes year, until it is done.
In order to sustain momentum, you must declare it. Make your mantra I will write this sentence, this paragraph, this chapter--and, I will do it today. Then, do it.
"Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin."--Robert Collier
Until this time next time.
See you in print,
