Reflections on Writing
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
― Stephen King
As I reflect on writing, I realized how valuable reading 15 minutes a day is for not only finishing my dissertation but also writing a novel or how-to book. This quote by Steven King reinforces the value of sitting and reading. I realized that 15 minutes a day of reading for pleasure has made getting my dissertation written. It has uncluttered my mind for the task at hand.
I have been working on my revisions for chapter 2 of my dissertation and I find myself distracted by my yearning to write fiction. However, I have to force those desires down for a while. My goal over the next 27 days is to find a way to do both while finding a job or redesigning a career. I feel the mental distractions are painful. I will find a balance.
Happy and Grateful Statement (Sticking with this for now)
I am happy and grateful that I am a Diamond consultant for Organo Gold coffee because I am able to be a good husband, father, son, brother, mentor, and author because I am able to have the freedom and time to write books and articles that entertain and inspire my readers in order to create positive social change.

No TV: No TV. However, I did go to the movies today and say the new The Hunger Games movie, "Catching Fire." Great movie and followed the book real well. If you've never read the Hunger Game series you won't get lost.
