Alas, two months later, I've only written one short story. Some writers will shrug their shoulders and say, "Sometimes life gets in the way."
And other writers will retort, "So what? Keep writing. Writers write!"
Well, I plan to get back to my original goal, but with everything pushed back two months.
It's not that I haven't been writing -- and this is not a rationalization -- because my job involves writing and editing. I write every day. I've been so busy with other things that I haven't written that many blog posts since I made that earlier declaration.
But that's going to change. Now. Besides the short stories, I also plan to start on a novel in the next few weeks, after I've worked out a broad outline.
I guess the point I want to get across, and I heard this from a minister many years ago, is to "keep on keepin' on" until you reach your goal.
Until the next time....
