The last four months have been a struggle. It’s been hard to grow as a writer. I could not get started on the Cowboy Tale this morning, but instead of getting up for a run or to eat or to do anything but sit here looking at a blank screen, I remained at my writing desk. This is a first for me. Usually I opt for a distraction based on wobbly reasons rather than keeping my feet and seat firmly planted. Creating a finished piece of art is hard. I’ve been reluctant to work so hard and thus my book, my podcast and my blog have fallen silent. Still I just keep getting back up on the horse!
