Taking the First Step...

I would love to say I did it. I'm writing this with the television on, so that says it all. However, I was in a creative zone the last four days. Even yesterday. I didn't have the tube on all day, but it was no distraction. I still need to cut it back especially when I know I'm vegging out on it, but it wasn't the case yesterday. A lot of good work has gotten done during this vacation. I'm very pleased with where I am with the book, and even this blog. I know that nobody is reading yet, but having the discipline to post everyday has kept my creative muscles working. You have to discipline yourself to write even when you don't feel like it. It may not be as much or as good as you would do on those "in the zone" days, but that can be fixed in rewrite. Sometimes the days when you don't expect good work to happen it ends up being your best. As Lao Tzu would say, take the first step.
