Author, Journey, Writing



Perhaps I shouldn’t be so

Rough on myself and

Overly demanding of my time

Clearly I should be working on my book but the

Reality of it is … I’m really not

Able to focus on one thing at a time.

Sometimes demands fight for my

Time and most often they win.

In those moments I throw my hands in defeat and do


As I sit with my own thoughts, staring at a blank sheet

The realization that I will need to work twice-as-hard later kicks in and

I am pained that I have wasted yet another afternoon

On menial tasks that keep me from working on the

Novel once again. I suppose there is always tomorrow.
