Can’t agree with this post more. Congrats, Alex, on all the great things happening for you right now. Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I’m going to go try and get some work done. LOL. Gotta try and keep up. 🙂
Writers are good at creating excuses not to write. Let’s face it, we’re a creative bunch with broad imaginations, so it’s no wonder we’re able to concoct amazingly intricate ways to lie to ourselves.
Let me introduce everyone to an author I admire greatly who makes every excuse automatically invalid.
I’ve watched his career and life through social media over the past several years. We’ve chatted about everything from family to writing. With four children and a full time job, money and time are in short supply, but can’t isn’t in this man’s vocabulary.
He gets up in the wee hours of the morning to edit and write blog posts, then carves out a few minutes during lunch to write books, and ends the day with marketing for other authors and freelance work. When exactly does this man sleep? Probably never, but can’t isn’t in his vocabulary.
