Focus Focus

The first rule to being a writer is that you must write.  This is common sense since it is what makes us writers but what about all of the distractions?  I'm very distracted today but I managed to get some work done on the novel.  It wasn't as much as I would have liked but … Continue reading Focus Focus


Back to Work!

If anyone says that being a writer is easy, they aren't a writer.  There are so many distractions to my writing that it's sometimes very difficult to be disciplined enough to sit down to the business of it.  But, after very little progress, I've found a solution.
