Some are more, while others are less. Some are easy, while others are hard.

The only real problem I’m having are those pesky days where I just don’t have it in me. The days where I lack any motivation to even look at my computer, let alone open it up and actually use my imagination to spring forth utter brilliance . . . or something remotely coherent about my story and characters.

Instead of caving into those dark days, though, I force myself to sit down and type. Those days I usually count down each word down as I go, well, because even though writing is the last thing on the plant I want to be doing in that given moment, by gosh, this book isn’t going to write itself and I have a deadline and darn it…

Articles of interest from last week include:

On Wednesday, March 23, new debris was found that may belong to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared almost two years ago.

On Thursday, March 24, 48 more bikers have been indicted for their part in the Waco shooting last year.  This brings the total to 106 bikers indicted.
