Write Every Day
I don’t know if he still does this, but there was a time when Stephen King would write every single day of the year except for Christmas, his birthday and the Fourth of July. If ever I wanted to have an idol it would be him. I love the way he writes. I love that he kept trying even after he’d gotten rejection after rejection. I love that he came from humble circumstances. He’s an ordinary guy. He’s done an extraordinary thing.
He scares the crap out of me, but he is also the reason why I am a channel now. I OD’d once on his novels. And, after that the weird psychic stuff started happening. And, here I am today.
But, if you need somebody to help you over the rough spots in your own path of creativity pick somebody who is working in the field of your heart’s desire and pattern your own work or the way you work after them. And, if he can show up every day to work, so can I.
NaNoWriMo word count this morning is 9,988, still real close to my goal of 1,000 words a day.
