Habits

"Habit is habit, and not to be thrown out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.- Mark Twain "


As you can see I have made it a habit to neglect my blog. I will try to coax that habit down and my writing back up. I have also coaxed my bad habit of smoking so far down the stairs that I dug a six foot deep hole and buried it under the basement. Yes, it's been four months and nary a craving for one.

What habits do you have (good or bad)?

Reading the news of an old friend's good fortune (book getting published [jealous it's not mine] very excited for her) I realized how lacking I have been with my own goal of submitting two manuscripts this year. I'm about finished with the first book in a series. The problem I am having is that I already plotted two others in a new series that just popped into my head this weekend during training.

Don't ask me how the two correlate (training and book ideas of completely different genres), but it all came together rather quickly on the reverse driving we did Saturday. The angel on my shoulder is saying study, the devil is saying grab a Swiss Cake Roll and lounge pool side. Between the two, neither is saying write so I will listen to my gut and finish my study guide then take my laptop pool side instead.

"There are three difficulties in authorship; to write anything worth the publishing, to find honest men to publish it, and to get sensible men to read it. -C.C. Colton"

Happy Monday, bloggers!
