Wanted: self disapline.

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

The following are the reasons I have not been writing:
1) Now that summer is here, I have so much work to do, I haven’t the time.
2) When I get home from work I’m too tired to write.
3) The beer is too cold and there is too much of it.
4) My new laptop is difficult to operate.
5) My brain hurts.
  It’s easy to talk about writing, difficult to push yourself to actually do it. This statement tells me I am not the writer I thought I was. If I was to live up to my expectations, I would be committing a couple hours a day to the craft. I am publicly scolding myself to give myself a kick in the butt.
  I am thankfully forced to get back to my art because of the money spent for a professional edit. It would be a waste if I didn’t give my best effort. I have asked for a phone conversation from my editor. I need to discuss structure, sub plots and inner conflict issues among other things. I have been brainstorming more than revising.
  I hit the blog again to refresh my skills, and learn how to use this new contraption.
  As for self discipline, that’s something I’ve been looking for my whole life. Now let’s get back on that horse.
