|I'm not the only writer in our house...|
But the real problem is me; I can track all my former success back to a well disciplined approach. In 2008, I wrote a small book while learning my way as a new dad and working a full time job. All it took was 30 minutes a day. In the span of one spring and summer, I wrote over 32,000 words. Not all that impressive, I know, but it was my first project, and my only one finished to date.
And now, well, I have so many fragments, so many ideas, so many notes that I want to pursue, but I lack the discipline to sit and pound out that first messy draft.
One victory: with the help of the resident editor (my lovely wife), I was able to submit a poem and a short story to a contest.
Another victory: I'm completing a short post here.
One step at a time...
