More on inspiration/discipline

Thank you so much for your help yesterday. Because of your comments I have figured out a plan that I am sure will work. I will be disciplined and put aside an hour a day to work on the book and if inspiration comes, it comes, but I will leave a space open. I will forget about the illustrations for now and just finish the book. I will give myself plenty of time to work on the visual art on the weekends, so I won't feel deprived :-). It may take a little longer to finish the book this way, but at least it will get finished :-). To this end I wrote one and a half chapters yesterday. The chapters are small, the book is only 50-70 pages, so a chapter is only a couple pages, but still it felt good to get something done.
Today is Sunday and that means clay and ceramics (for now anyway). I drew up a bunch of designs and I can't wait to get going!
Happy Sunday! XOXO

Go, Annie! You seem off to a good start. I'll use your example as my inspiration this week...

Congrats on your wise discernment. It sounds like you have created a very good plan for yourself, Annie. Just write a little bit each day, sometimes that is all it takes to create momentum. I write every morning and so look forward to it. After 21 days of doing this, you may feel like it is a habit. Takes 90 to create a habit that is pretty much unshakable. Then it becomes lifestyle. Do it long enough and the good stuff sticks!

I love how clear and balanced you are as you listen to what feels good to you. Sounds like a gentle plan that allows you to have fun with it all and create your book, too.

Wishing you unexpected delights today and always!
