Discipline and Writing: One of Many Resolutions for 2015

One of my resolutions for 2015 is to write more.  This is a huge goal because I have to do a ton of writing. A ton. No, seriously, a ton.

In addition to working on my nonfiction education book (for my business), I need to write more for my professional blog, my personal blog, a blog I write for a friend’s comedy show, various articles I publish, recaps and articles for DarkMediaOnline.com, and personal writing (including the novels I’ve been writing for years now).  Some of it overlaps, but most of it is 100% fresh and unique.

In sum, it’s a ton of writing on a regular basis.

To get it all done, I need discipline.  I need to focus on whatever I’m working on and not let myself become distracted by other things.

Of course, it’s easier said than done…but it’s still early in 2015. I have high hopes 🙂

Over the Writer’s Block/Procrastination Hump: Inspiration Strikes

All of a sudden the words are coming.  My trusty pink notebook has been within arms’ reach so that I can record whatever pops into my head.

Silly brain.  I have you figured out now….
