Here’s today’s thought that will get in your way:

I can’t possibly write today. I didn’t sleep well…my back hurts…I’m anxious…my stomach’s upset….

Look, writing isn’t changing transmissions. It involves mental work but it doesn’t demand a lot physically. I often have insomnia and feel like crap especially in the morning. Sometimes I tell myself I feel too lousy to write. On those mornings I have two things to feel crummy about.

Once again it comes down to comfort. Finishing a novel will involve leaving your comfort zone. Plan to make short term discomfort your mailing address.

Okay? Good. Ass on chair, fingers on keyboard. Type.
