Your Choice

There is no simpler way for me to tell you this: If you want to write, you can do it. It’s up to you.

I hear a lot of reasons why people don’t write. They always sound good but they have to be because they aren’t for me. They are for the people giving me the excuse. I know because I used a lot of them before I started writing again.

It took time and energy to lie to myself and others why I wasn’t writing. If I was working back then at the pace I am now, I could have completed at least 90 drafts, I could have been past my 10,000 mistakes and my 10,000 hours of practise. I regret now that time I wasted.

Now, it is your time to choose but remember it has nothing to do about time, or money, or skill, or talent, or the right writing tools, or a place to write.

It is about you making the choice to begin.
