The Myth

“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.” – E B White (1899-1985) Writer

It’s easy to make excuses and put your writing dreams on hold for another day in favor of doing something else. Coffee dates with girlfriends and exploring a city that is still brand new to you eat up precious and valuable time. Time which I do not have to waste every single day. Where did my focus and discipline vanish to??? Then I stumbled across this quote and it could not have come at a better time.

Little reminders like this keep me on my path, a sign so I would not lose my way.

Revising a novel is unlike anything I have experience before in my life…hence the fact I am prone to procrastination or downright laziness. But failing to do this is not an option for me so I have done what I should have done a long time ago.

Invest in a planner.

It’s blue by the way…my reasoning being that it would be therapeutic to look at.

But now that I have a plan of attack I plan on having this project wrapped up and sealed with a kiss. (The date at present is secret to only me, I feel like I jinx myself and stunt any creative flow when I share this with others).

As for what will happen after then?

Another creative endeavor no doubt…not after indulging in an expensive bottle of white though 😉

Truly Strange…

Well, I climbed Grouse Mountain wearing red lipstick.

Believe it or not it remained in perfect condition the whole way despite the very challenging nature of the climb. This I find a greater accomplishment than climbing the actual mountain itself. I also, for some unknown reason, did not expect to see anything, like say…a view, when I reached the top. This thought just did not cross my mind…but wow!!! All that pain, grunting and sweat was worth it. I wonder if the Asian businessman in a suit and briefcase thought so to?
