No More Excuses
Despite the many years I have wanted to write, discounting the scattered articles, contemporary master interviews, and workshop reviews I have written and had published in art periodicals, I have not taken seriously the role of writer. I posted regularly to my art blog for several years, but the last time was in 2009.
I have retired from the business world. I am back to teaching painting one day a week, though I am not painting again. I have finished the courses I wanted to take. I don’t live near my family. There are no more excuses.
Now, what do I write? Complete the novel for which I wrote three chapters and a synopsis many years ago? Write short stories and flash fiction? Do some research and write non-fiction? Write and illustrate the children’s book I always hoped to do some day? Write content for blogs?
Begin, I tell myself, just begin. So, for starters, I will try to write at least 100 words a day. Right here and now.
