You Will Always Regret The Book You Didn’t Write


Regret.001I almost didn’t write today’s post.

Today is parent/teacher conferences, I had a ton of family obligations this week, so I’m not where I want to be in my work in progress… you know, the normal excuses.  But I’d made a goal for myself at the beginning of the year.  I’d blog once a week about writing, usually about motivation.  I also knew that I’d kick myself if I didn’t meet my goal in March – not meeting goals should be something left for December 😉

All the time people tell me they want to write a book.  I’ll ask them about it later, and they haven’t started, or wrote a few pages and then stopped, and the regret is there.  Writing isn’t easy.  There’s always something I could be doing like reading or binge watching some great TV show everyone around me is talking about, but then I’d regret the book I didn’t write.

If you enjoyed this post, I have several others on motivation and writing you may like: Begin72 Hours a Year, A Page A Day and Write Like A Champion.

The amazing Candace Havens helped out last week with her wonderful post on writing.  Check it out here if you haven’t already.
