It’s not the writing that is so hard…

it’s the “getting ready” to write that slices through you.  The prep, the mental workup, the rationalization of doing other things – the flipping through the last “Get that novel written” book you’ve read.  The clicking on sights that promise you relief from the madness – and… nothing on paper.

Think about how many emails you send a week, how many facebook posts or tweets or whatever that you compose on a regular basis.  How many words are you really writing?  1000 a week, a day?

It’s not that you’re unable to do this, it’s that you’re doing it where it isn’t getting you where you want to be.

You know what to do, do it instead of getting ready to do it.

Now go show yourself what you’re made of.
