Writing is hard.  It takes a lot of time.  Sometimes I feel great about it, call my sister talking non-stop about something I’ve just written.  Othertimes, I want to lay down and not lift my fingers.  Sometimes the only reward is knowing I’ve put a few thoughts down.

Today, I’m having to force myself to work because I’m reminded about how long a road it is until a story is complete…something I am very far from.

Alright, it’s time to go to a baseball game – the perfect place to sit and think in circles some more.
