Talking is not Doing Unless...


I have spent over 30 years talking about becoming a writer. Over this time, I have collected torn out sheets from spiral notebooks, faded and stained napkins from restaurants, along with random wrinkled church bulletins, all with notes scribbled on them. Today I found a stack of these in a binder on the shelf. I also have over 200 pages of printed stories that I started at some point and printed when I had a computer crash! Inspiration hits at the oddest moments, and much of these I barely remember writing. Some of them don't make sense, and some of them are GOOD! There is even more on my computer, and on a thumb drive, I found. Although I have quite a collection here, many more scraps and stories have been thrown away. No rhyme or reason as to why I kept some and tossed others. I even have three "book covers" I created with a marker!

I have talked about writing. And I have talked about not having inspiration. All of this was sitting right here the whole time. Not to mention the 23,000 words I have invested in my new novel. Now is time to start doing! So I will be talking about my writing as I am doing it.

So a little less talking, and a lot more "doing" is going to be happening over here in Tam's world.

I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, is there anything you want to accomplish but haven't "made" time? Are you talking and not doing something that would fulfill you?

I'd love to hear from you.!

All my best,
