The struggle of putting pen to paper

I thought it was time for an update on how my book writing is going… well it is going, but VERY slowly in terms of what to show for how much time has passed and how much time I have invested! I’m still very clear about what I want to write about. The struggle is how to structure the content in a way that captures what I want to say while at the same time making sure that it is of interest to others and achieves my purpose for even writing a book. I’ve talked to a number of people and done quite a bit of research and now have a possible title and chapter themes. 

What’s good is that I already have quite a lot of content scattered in various places from interviews I’ve done and things I’ve already written… so the biggest challenge now is putting it all together, scheduling time for this to happen and actually making this a priority.

It’s like many things in our busy lives. Once you commit to something and make it a priority, then it’s up to you and you alone to make it happen… as the saying goes ‘If it is to be, then it’s up to me’. 

There are many times in my life when I have found myself in situations where I’ve reflected on this simple phrase and come to the reality check that I am the only one who can change the circumstances of the situation in which I find myself at that particular point in time.

…so I know what I have to do next to make it happen.
