I will be writing 500 words a day on my book. I know I can easily do this, just by slipping 50 or 100 words in here and there through out my day. It’s easier to wrap my mind around a 500 word scene than an entire 50,000 word story, too. Like writing a snap shot or a moment in time. Then they can be added together like frames in a movie or the windows in a cartoon strip.
It’s like reducing the importance of what I want to do will remove the life and death feeling I get when I consider my plans. Contemplating a few paragraphs is so much more assessible than finishing an entire book. I can survive.
My book is the first thing I will tackle each day. Everything else takes a back seat. While there’s a very long list of things I like to do, there’s only so much time in the day and I MUST do the one thing I WANT to do first..
Time to put my time where I say my priority is..
So far, three successful days under my belt.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’ ~ Stephen Covey
If we resist our passions, it is more because of their weakness than because of our strength. ~ François, duc de La Rochefoucauld
Chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night. ~ Terri Guillemets
