Back On Track

I have a terrible habit of getting off track. I have the best intentions (don't we all), but you know what they say about the road to hell (hint: that it's paved with them.)

(And adverbs, per Uncle Stevie. Listen to Uncle Stevie.)

But something clicked this year. I realized that time is short. You don't get to say "in my next life..." blah blah blah. There is no next life. This is it. I should've realized it long ago, but I'm kind of a bonehead sometimes and things fall into place when they do. So I made some major changes.

I cleaned up my diet. Started exercising regularly. Started posting again (if sporadically.) Threw myself into various writing projects, and now The Writing Partner and I are on the verge of some very big things in the screenwriting world that I'll hopefully  be able to share soon!

I've also decided to finally finish writing a book. The Writing Partner and I brainstormed a solid set up that I'm very excited about, and I think I'm finally focused enough to see this through to the end. To not give up when I'm frustrated, or wander off when I'm distracted by shiny things on the internet.

(like lolcats!)

Stephen King is one of my favorite writers, and he writes 2000 words a day. If it's good enough for Stephen King, it's good enough for me. 

As one of my favorite screenwriting websites says "The Only Way Out Is Through."

So here's to writing through the good days, and writing through the tough days, and writing writing writing 'til my poor little fingers beg for mercy.

Because writers don't spend their time talking about writing. 

Writers write.
