Plugging Along One Page At A Time

I’ve battled frustration these last couple days. On Monday I was only able to finish about a page during my writing time. It was barely four hundred words. On Tuesday, I got almost two pages finished. Believe me, I know it’s silly to be upset about how many pages I was able to write. Perspective Luis, I am working on my novel. What more can I ask for in life?

Reportedly Stephen King averages about 2000 words per day. OK, I’m off a bit. But, Ernest Hemingway supposedly did about 500 words per day. OK, I’m feeling better. God knows, I may never be Michael Crichton.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to it. I have to write as much as I can. Maybe, just don’t focus so much on the big picture all the time. Just look at the moment, live in it, and enjoy the process.

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
