Today took a little longer than I had expected.
I had an awful lot on my To-Do list – but the very first item was REACH THE 20,000 WORD MARK.
And that was what I did.
It took a little doing because I was in the middle of a couple chapters that I only had the bare bone notes for – but this is the point of the game where a fellow has to reach into his pockets and pull his perseverance out.
Now I know that you can yourself into deep trouble with the authorities if you go blatantly waving your perseverance around like that but I am rebel, just because.
You see sometimes you just have to go hard at something with all of your might. You just set a mark and you run for it.
That is the power of setting a goal and sticking to it.
Now – because I wrote so darned much today I don’t really have the time to give you folks much of a sermon on writing but instead let me show you a scene from one of my favorite movies of all time that will give you a better idea of just what I am talking about.
(and I really wish I could have found a clip of the whole scene – but if you want to learn about perseverance sit down tonight and watch Cool Hand Luke)
I have learned everything in my life from good old movies.
yours in storytelling,
