I'd like to talk about fiction in the following months (I'm not promising days), writing it, reading it, trends in publishing, and marketing ideas I see on other blogs.
For this time just let me say that if you want to write, do it! Don't talk about, don't read about how to do it, just put one word at a time down. Into sentences, into paragraphs, into stories. Begin with an image and describe what you see. Begin with a character and throw her into a situation. Begin with an idea you want to explore.
Set aside time every day to write. I know, you're too busy! Not an excuse. Get up 15 minutes earlier. Take 15 minutes from your lunch. Take 15 minutes from your normal TV viewing, your Facebook time. Tweet less.
15 minutes out of 24 hours is manageable. Do it today.
