Who is always telling you "Just do the work"? Yeah, that would be me. Who has not been doing the work? Yeah, that would be me. Sometimes life circumstances get us sidetracked. Mostly it has to do with other people's needs, not our own. Generally this is because we are good, kind, loving, human beings and we help when we are needed. And this is good. But, we only get one life each, so at some point we just have to say "Gone Fishing" and attend to our own needs, which means, doing the work. Okay writers, let's do it. Focus, for crying out loud! NaNoWriMo is approaching, for all you prose writers. Poets - well, come on, let's get weird.
