Yaaaay! Victory is mine! I finally finished my final draft of my first book in the Time Traveling Diaries of Sebatian Barkley. Now all I have to do is save up my monies for Mr. Editor and then go agent hunting. Exciting.
How did I do it?
I stopped whining about how much I hated editing. I closed off my tab that had Netflix instant playing Bones. I stopped procrastinating by talking to my friends on the phone. I even turned off Twitter for a couple of days. I had a Guiness while editing. But just one…you need a clear head after all for editing.
And what’s the point of all this rambling?
If I can do it, you can do it to.
So bite the bullet, and get it done! Do a little every day. Schedule an hour before bed or wake up an hour earlier and just do it.
You’ll feel more free than you can even imagine. So turn off the distractions and do it!
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–which is: Try to please everybody
~Herbert Bayard Swope
You see things; and you say, “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say, “Why not?”
