Nulla dies sine linea

“No day without a line.”

This is the quote that sticks in my mind to remind me of the minimum commitment a writer must make – write something everyday. Very basic and simple although in our busy life sometimes even this small feat is an effort. It is, though, an effort we must make to ourselves in order to fulfill our passion if we dream of being a published author. If you have signed up to participate in the November novel writing mania, you have chosen to add to your life the effort of writing at least 50,000 words by the end of the month. It is our passion for the written word that drives us to take on this monumental task in addition to whatever other writing we do on a regular basis.

Typing fingers

Assign a time to write. Take it and make it your own.

    Here’s to taking time to write – making it our own. Took me long enough!

    It doesn’t matter how long it takes, just as long as you are there with it when you can be. I know we talked about this many times over the years we have known each other – we have to make it important to us before it is important to others. I am happy you are there on this writing journey with me, my friend.
