Nearly a year ago, I was cleared to work out again after some serious ankle surgery. I gave myself a 'no more excuses' lecture on getting back in shape. And I followed through and am nearly at my goal of being physically fit (for my age).
Now I need to do the same thing with my writing. Some of my writing friends are busy promoting their recent works and making a huge splash. Take Stephen Tremp over at his Breakthrough Blog. I missed his big push on Monday but I wanted the chance to mention him here. I loved Breakthrough and have his second novel, Opening, on my TBR. I'll be getting to it before his third novel, Escalation, is released this fall.
Others of my friends have been promoting their books through conferences and panel presentations like Cate Masters. Check out some great info she shares on her blog about things she's picked up at said venues.
Alex Cavanaugh somehow keeps his very busy blog fresh and interesting while working on his third novel and dares to post his progress on this sidebar.
I could list even more of my blogger friends who make no excuses. They have day jobs, families, active blogs and busy online presences, and still get their writing done. So my motto for the next few months is no excuses. No excuses.
Any excuses you can do away with?
