So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Why can't I do this?

Well, it looks like Dad Gone Mad is publishing a book.

*sigh*

I really want to write a book. I have so many ideas bee-bopping around in my head. But, to actually sit down and start writing; I just can't seem to do it.

I go back and forth between being totally committed to the idea of writing a book. Why don't I just do it? The self-doubts creep up. I'm not good enough. Who would care? I don't have time. You name it, I say it to myself.

I really ought to just do it. Sort of like Nike.

    The hardest thing to do is start. You can do it though. Block out an hour or two, go to Starbucks, and just start writing. Don't self-edit. DOn't listen to all that shit in your head that tells you that you can't do it. Just start. Objects in motion stay in motion. Now GO!

    You and me both sister! However, his new book deal has sparked my motivation for my book about Jenelle. Or as my husband says, "The only reason you're hesitating is that you are afraid to succeed!"

    Maybe we can inspire each other!
