Today’s Word: Discipline

On those days that the inspiration is running low, what do we do? Do we shrug and say, “Okay, maybe tomorrow”?  Do we run down the street looking for whoever stole it from is?  Do we go to the store and order some more?  Do we search for it on Amazon Prime? NO! (Except maybe

Sometime around October of last year (weird to say that about 2019 already, right?)

6 weeks.  If I can just focus for 6 weeks I’ll be DONE. The book will be totally finished and ready for me to send off to my small list of beta readers for feedback before the query process. I’ve been writing furiously, like a MADMAN.  So furiously, in fact, that I’ve started CAPITALIZING random
