Ok. I am making a pledge here. I want to feel compelled to do what I promise. I am taking six weeks to check out of my day-to-day life in order to hole up in solitude and FINISH MY NOVEL.
(No excuses, Moore. You are on the hook now, so finish the book already.)
I will check in regularly to let you know how I’m doing. Hold me accountable. If I start floundering, kindly pull out your riding crop and, well, you know. It’s time to complete novel number one, so that I can start novel number two.
Step 1. Get the suitcase out of attic storage
Step 2. Pack clothes, computers, cell phone, checkbook, arm sling
Step 3. Get to the airport early
Step 4. Settle in and start writing
