a good reminder

You can focus on what's wrong or you can focus on what's right; whatever you focus on will then expand. DUH... but still worth mentioning.

Here are two wonderful bits of propaganda currently circulating on F*cebook....

writing in the margins

I'm working full time again and have quite a long commute so I'm now working on my novel when I can using a folding keyboard and my Iphone, primarily on the train.

Writing is a bit of a chore for me, but I'm determined to finish it. Last November I got just over 50,000 words done (during the Nanowrimo writing marathon) however I didn't work on it at all after that for a long time. Then, I only worked 20 hours a week so I had more time to write.

I've realized I can't wait until I have a huge chunk of free time to write, I have to do it when and where I can. Even if it takes 5 years, in 5 years I'll have a book.

Case in point, J.K. Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book during naptimes as a welfare mother. Amazing.

This isn't just for writing of course. 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there on a project eventually yields results.


Mass protests? Saw it coming.

Remember "The Practical Hippie"?
