I'm almost finished my website (finally) and the cover design for my first book is starting to look like an actual book cover, but the intense tug-o-war from hockey drafts and "who should I pick first" thoughts dancing in my head are hypnotizing me. HELP! I just want to get it all done!
Can a red-blooded Canadian boy unplug at this time of year? Tough, very tough. But can I, maybe, put on hold all my hard work I've done and try to regain the momentum I've been riding these last several weeks when the playoffs are done? Sure--I guess. My wife might really kill me this time if I do, though...
What it comes down to is my unbelievable 180 turn in philosophy and, more importantly, work ethic. If I don't become successful with my writing, if millions of people don't become familiar with J.P. Kurzitza and his stories, I can deal with that--gulp. If writing has taught me anything, it's how to prioritize and maintain discipline ( and shun family members). Two (and-a-half) essential ingredients to writing successfully and writing consistently.
So, I'm sorry, NHL Playoffs. Sorry, NFL Draft. Sorry, pairs-figure-skating. I've got the internet and a bazillion ways to update and check scores.
Oh, and I've got work to do.
