That’s an uncomfortable thought, isn’t it?
The reality is there will always be something more important than writing today – if you allow it.
Husbands, wives, children, friends and a host of other obligations are always fighting for your attention.
One of the biggest challenges writers face is when other people want your time and attention and don’t really care that you planned on writing for an hour.
Set clear boundaries with your loved ones.
If you try to dictate orders to your family you will be met with a less than desirable response.
Enroll them in your vision.
Explain how important this book is to you, then prove your commitment by setting and keeping your writing appointments with yourself, whether you feel like it or not.
Once your family sees you taking writing seriously, they will take you seriously as a writer.
But it all starts with living in integrity with your commitment.
- Do what you said you would do…
- When you said you would do it…
- Whether you feel like it or not.
This is, ultimately, the fastest and easiest way to finish your book.
It’s the fastest way to turn your book dreams into your published reality.
