1) Surfing Facebook when I should be writing
2) Writing a story because I thought it’d sell
3) Worrying what readers will think of me
4) Setting aside a story before I’ve finished it
5) Pretending I can’t think of anything to write (aka “writer’s block”) because I’m too damn scared/undisciplined to do it
I am a Cowardly Lion — a sack of insecurities. I count each word a victory, a bone for the skeleton of some new me.
Success is this: doing less of what we hate, more of what we love.
