Working on the Work Ethic

Life always gets in the way. I like to complain and say "If only I didn't have to deal with X I'd be published already."

But the fact is that even if I do get an offer of publication the rest of my life will stay crazy. Either I can learn to work despite the distractions and commitments or I can just assume I don't have the chops to do this professionally.

I think I am made of sterner stuff. So, I'm working on my work ethic.

Even though I haven't made a lot of my daily/weekly goals I am still plugging away. I sent a piece out for consideration today. Now, I'll wait for a response. In the meantime, I'm still working on everything else I'm trying to get accomplished.

There's a novella in the works. A couple of novels that are clamoring to be written. A handful of short plays for a local theater group. It's all there. All I have to do is get my butt into my chair and start writing.

One that note. I have an article on my other blog about my next possible novel projects. If you feel like throwing in your two cents then you can check it out here.

Now. I must get my butt into writing gear. I'll try and get the next Writer's Commandment up soon. I've got it rolling around the back of my mind too. Just haven't had two seconds to sit down and straighten it out.
