People ask all the time when my next book is coming out. Soon, I tell them, soon. I'm as anxious for it as they are, probably more so. But, I take to heart the adage: If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.
Yes, I am a little obsessive about the details. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be totally satisfied. Perfectionism can be a trap - or an excuse. It can keep us from achieving just about anything. Stalled along the way to chasing our dreams, we can settle into a state of entropy. I know, I've lived there before. But not this time. I finally hopped aboard this wild train, and I plan on riding it all the way to the station.
How about you? Have you climbed aboard yet? Or are you still standing beside the tracks, watching it speed past? Soon all that may be left is a lonely whistle in the distance. Even if you have to run to catch up, you can do it, I know you can! There's still a seat with your name on it. In fact... it'll stay empty if you don't fill it. And that would be a lousy shame. The world could use more fulfilled dreams.
