Begin My Book

The deck is cleared.  The slate is clean.  All my chores are done.  All that I had hoped to do over the last year, has now been done.

I’m ready to begin my book.

Journal Entry on my trip to Peru

It seems like its going to be a mountain to climb.  I feel myself looking around for something else that I ought to do before I begin.  That’s probably a little apprehension, probably some procrastination too.  I can’t say as I’m afraid of not succeeding, but I do wonder if all the work will have a payoff.  Defining my payoff may be a worthwhile thing to do too.

The payoff is that I’ll finally get down in words that which I hope to pass on to my grandkids and to my friends.  Perhaps even sell the story and make money at it.  Perhaps even have it become a movie some day.  Do I say that out loud?  Seems a like a big dream for a nobody author like me.

But isn’t that how most people get things done.  You just start.  Just start! One step at a time.  Not one big giant step of a leap to get to the top of the mountain.  Its one foot after another.  Step by step.  Bite size pieces.

And then you look back and….you’ve hiked up the mountain.

Ok then.  Here I go.  I’m beginning today.  Even if it’s just an outline.

Today, I begin my first book.
