Stay The Course and Write

So you have the writer’s bug but don’t have the time.

I’ve found myself in that position and have decided to write more microfiction and short stories. It would be easy to give up that thing that drives me to enrich my life. I’m lucky though, my addiction to write is cheap, resources are easily available and requires the type of motivation I’ve been born with.

But writing anything takes discipline. Being motivated does not mean I am automatically disciplined. While motivation gets me to the start line and moving when the gun goes off it is discipline that gets me to the finish line, mixed with some plain old stubbornness.

Stay the course
