Motivation

About a year ago a member of this forum told me how to write a book. Basically create a habit, get up and write every morning. I did it and in a matter of months had the first draft of the book.

Her marvelous and simple suggestion led me forward. I regularly read Jame Clear who regularly writes a column I religiously read and follow. This week's column is on motivation and gives good advice on moving forward.

His good advice may help you. There is no charge for following his writings.

I liked it, thanks Norm. There are also links to other great inspirational papers at the end. Sometimes we slowly get worn down without even realizing it. Then we get used to it and after a while it becomes normal. We can all use a reality check and certainly some inspiration. It was a nice wake up call.
Thanks Again,
Marky

Markley,

Somewhere on Jim Clear's page you can sign up to receive monthly items.

I find him insightful.

Hi Norm

If you ever want to publish (publicly or privately) or simply put your writings on paper in a book form, you can self-publish at very low cost from Lulu (www.lulu.com). It is a POD (printer on demand), no minimum order (you can have only one copy printed if you want or as many as you want). They only print when they receive an order.
About 5 years ago I published a 225-page book on my family history (10 year research), published it on Lulu. Worked great, I allowed my family members to order their own copy for about $6 each. Great quality, it was a 8.5 X 5.5 soft cover, but they offer many formats, paper quality and binding options.

Gilda, my goal is to have it ready as a gift for Ginny for Christmas. I gave her the first installment for her birthday.

As you may know we've been on the road for 7 months and, maybe it's age but I find myself more tired from my travels than I used to find myself. Today we did 165 miles and I napped for 2 hours this afternoon. My habit of writing in the morning isn't holding up. We just dashed up to MN to see a sick friend, though I loved the visit and the area, I found myself more tired. We're going thru NC now for our annual physical. He's already told us our numbers look good, as well we've lost more weight.

Once in FL I'll be on track with my daily writing and will work very hard to meet the schedule.

My goal is not financial.

Thanks for the thoughts a. ND I let people know it's ready.

Interesting!

I watched the documentary Janis: Little Girl Blue recently and a line towards the end of the movie jumped out at me. She said: "Who you are, is what you settle for, you know?"

A very profound comment when you stop to think about it.

"Who you are is what you settle for..." that's certainly a good part of life. Life is a series of choices, make good ones.

As to choices and poverty, finish high school, get a job, any kind of job, get married before having children, and be a law abiding citizen and the very high probability is you will not be in poverty regardless of race. Choices do and can make a difference.

Thanks for this reference Norm. Some new wisdom and good reminders of stuff probably known but lost in all the dusty boxes up in the mental attic. Glad to know you are moving forward on the writing project.

I admit to a secondary project, trying to understand the generally unstated financial state of the nation. It takes work because the reality is rarely reported. If anyone has good source of info please PM me and do not make it a forum topic.
