Hello, Readers! It’s the sixth day of Camp Nano. True to my usual I found myself lacking. I didn’t even make it a week into Camp before my word count fell behind.

It’s the sixth day of Camp Nano. True to my usual I found myself lacking. I didn’t even make it a week into Camp before my word count fell behind. There were so many reasons I could use. I had my teenage son for two days, and it’s virtually impossible to work with him. He’s very loud all of the time. These are facts, but not always enough to keep me from working.

In fact, I let them keep me from working. I’ve had a falling out with a friend and it’s taken a toll on me. While this is a usual way of things, especially in my field of work it doesn’t hurt less. It happens, though, more than I would like to admit. This isn’t the first and it won’t be the last by any means. I’m working on gathering myself once again and pushing on.

My dreams are well worth my time and effort. As much as I like to keep my friends around I can’t let the fact they choose to walk away stop me from keeping moving. It’s often like the saying goes some people come into your life for a moment and others for a lifetime. While I mistook this person as a lifetime sort of friendship, like many others, I was wrong.

Now that I’ve come to terms with it after many restless nights tomorrow should be a productive day for me. There are word count goals to bury under my work and a novel that is due out before the end of the year. None of this will happen without putting my nose to the grindstone.

No more excuses on why I’m not getting my work done. I can and will succeed in my dreams because I’m willing to log the hard hours of effort to get there.

Remember, L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
