I keep making excuses why I can’t write. Too busy. Kid needs my attention. Too tired.
Note to self: STOP IT. Just STOP. You are NEVER going to publish, or even get close to it, if you don’t suck it up and finish the damned book. And you probably won’t get this one published, either, but do you think you’re going to get there if you don’t finish one first? You’re learning craft as you go. Whether this one is published or not is largely irrelevant. What matters is that you write.
