If you visit The Writing Road often, you know, though I'm trying to write, life keeps getting in my way. I'm inspired by Vonda Skelton's post on February 2, 2010, on the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference Blog, and I believe you'll be inspired too.
I'm not waiting any longer. Instead, I'm trying hard to finish a project near and dear to my heart in 2010. How? I joined a gym just for the daily two hours of "free" childcare. Though I'd love to be in shape, sometimes I don't work out. While my little guy runs around burning energy, I might spend the whole time in the cafe working on my manuscript. Right now, finishing and submitting my novel is a bigger priority than working out. I'd love to do both, but I'm not going to let another year pass with my great idea stuck in my computer. As a friend reminds me, my characters have been served an eviction notice. It's time for them to move into their Happily Ever After and for me to make room for the other characters, whose stories I yearn to tell.
What's your great idea? What's kept you from completing your project? How can you change that?
