Day 18

Today is my last day before I start working full time.  I am not sure if I am going to look forward to working full-time or going to dread it.  We'll see.

My writing will have to fall into the night hours from now on.  I hope that I will be successful.

A word about self-discipline.  You need an accountability partner.  Someone to keep you accountable.  Someone who is going to put pressure on you and look over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you said you were going to do.

Writing a novel is an act of self-discipline.  It stretches and challenges you in many different ways, and you will need someone who will gently keep you accountable along the way.
