After many attempts to write that story you’ve been thinking about for so long you are now at a point where you are determined to get it done. You have reached that ‘fixed direction to an end’ but yet you find yourself stalling once again and the story remains locked inside of your brain. What is the key to setting your determination into real action? Well, take comfort in knowing that determination means you won’t quit. You will always make another attempt. Finding your focus is one of those keys. Zeroing in on the task at hand, blocking out distractions and making the decisions that will force you to act is true in all endeavors. The same holds true in your determination to begin writing that story. The other key is discipline. Not allowing distractions steal your determination and cloud your focus requires discipline.
Master these qualities and you will see your writing proliferate.
