I know I have said this before and it is more than likely that I will say it again. If you have thoughts whether for a story, a poem, or even just your blog. However scrambled or mutilated they may be at the time it is still important to get them down on paper. If you are at work when a thought hits you, write it down. I can’t count how many times I have had thoughts that would have made great material for one thing or another. Not writing it down has killed me every time.
Another thought I have had lately, is I need to put my priorities in some kind of order. The first thing I need to do is stop procrastinating. In my own defense, there are times that I get ideas for two or more of my short stories, plus thoughts about how to word out my non-fiction books. It all gets a bit overwhelming and so then nothing gets done. It is important to just relax and let things flow. I know this I am just impatient.
And that leads to yet another thought, that actually may be more of an opinion. My impatience is something that I am trying to get under control. It is not easy as I have been this way all my life. It is another reason I get frustrated. I want things to start happening now. I want my books to sell. I want to be well known as a writer, no matter how controversial I am (can be…will be). My non-fiction books are going to be very controversial. They are both meant to give people a wake up call. One of the books will be kind of on the whimsical side. The other one, I will be making fun of keeping up with the Joneses. It will be a harsher slap in the face type of reality check book.
well it is getting late and I have to hit my day job in the morning. I always have pen and paper handy so I promise to be more diligent about writing things down. Good-night happy reading, happy writing
