that scares you.

I picked up a journal with that message **in early 2017 and there were days I was scared to even pick it up since it was filled with nudges to leave my comfort zone.

And there it was last Friday.

As usual, with my usual random selection approach to consuming books, I turned to an unused page.

This one featured a quote by Henry David Thoreau:

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.

And, son of a gun, if I didn’t do just that when, in a Facebook group, I solicited input from fellow teachers for a long-simmering book idea.

After all, in 2018, why not you?

Just lift yourself up from the chair. That’s step one. And see what happens.

Writers Horoscope for October 22: Today, it’s nose to the grindstone.

Even if you need some help from a few friends.

Whether it’s prep for National Novel Writing Month or taking a team approach to knock off ‘Finish This Damnable Project!’ list items, order up some pizza, Cheeto’s, and wet wipes. Beverages? Keep ’em straight. You want to be able to find your keyboard, after all.

That’s the fuel for Round 1.

And the payoff for persistence?

And there may be even *greater* rewards for that extra-extra effort.
