Things I’m Doing: Making a Brand New Ending

I’m writing on the blog today to let you know I’m not writing on the blog today. How’s that for a riddle? People keep blogs for all sorts of reasons. This blog here? I’m going to journal my next 30-, 60-, and 90- days, my next six months, and all the months I’ll need to make it as a writer.

When you think about it, because I have a blog and a few writing clients, I’m already, technically, a writer. But you and I both know what I mean. I mean, I’m not yet a guy sitting in a coffee shop in Key West, plunking away on my Macbook secretly “making a living” writing articles for my clients, chapters for my next book, and asking other speakers, celebrities, and personalities if I can’t also write for them.

Yes. That’s the goal. Take the family to Key West. They go off and do Key West tourist-type stuff. I find a coffee place that serves dried bananas with my coffee. And I’m “at the office.”

It’s going to happen. My journey started Saturday morning after meeting with the way-smart D.J. Its’ funny …well, sad, actually …that he spelled it out so perfectly. I’m the only one who doesn’t believe in me.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” -Carl Bard

“Take time to reflect on your story–the story of your life. If not you may lose the thread of your life, your source of identity, and your purpose.” -Mustard Seeds

Also, I’ve kept a journal off and on since I was in high school. I usually used a typical spiral notebook or a composition journal, even though I knew Moleskins were the true, artsy, gold-standard. Lo and behold, Moleskin has a free app for iPad (and iPhone) and its brilliant and makes me feel snobby. I love it.
