I’m sure many writers have gotten lost along the way . . . well, maybe not for a whole year. But now I’m back in the saddle and heading to the finish line, and that would be seeing A Beacon In The Dark published this year. Justify made history yesterday wining the Triple Crown and I can make my own history.
This weekend I attended Killer Heat: A Mystery Writer’s Weekend Getaway. The event was sponsored by Northeast Ohio Sisters In Crime, of which I am a member, and certainly lit a fire under me.
My life won’t suddenly become less frantic, nor will unexpected problems and situations go away. But I was reminded of one important rule of successful authors this weekend and that is to hold fast to a specific writing schedule. Oh yeah, I learned that rule years ago. Problem is I haven’t followed it. I sit down at my computer and begin typing away. Then that evil demon called Distraction rears its ugly head and I’m off in another direction.
Now, it’s time to begin typing!!!!
