What Gets You Up in the Morning?

Posted by on 3rd July , 2017

Discouraged-writer-300x238Sometimes I have too much time on my hands; sometimes I never seem to have enough.

I don’t know, I can be a big procrastinator. But I can be so crazy-focused on the job at hand that I won’t rest until it’s done.

Go figure.

I love to exercise, and I love to write. And most of the time I get to do both.

But there are times when I go through periods that won’t do both. I don’t know why.

Anyway, I wake up one morning and all of a sudden I’m driven again to work on my body and my books!

I know it may seem weird but it’s me. What can I say?

And when the writing gets ratcheted up, I feel amazing.

I like that amazing feeling.

I suppose that’s what gets me up in the morning. That promise that today I will create something new and awesome!

Don’t let anyone stomp on your dreams. Keep plugging away at them!

The only person you have to answer to is yourself.

If we’re not careful, this could be our world!

Not too long ago I entered into a very special writing contest: 2016 Climate Fiction Short Story Contest hosted by Arizona State University.

Not only was it a good way to jump start my writing that had been a little stale lately but also it was an opportunity to have my work read by one of my favorite Science Fiction authors: Kim Stanley Robinson! Read the rest of this entry »
