I knew today was going to be hectic, so instead of missing two days of running I decided the best plan was for me the get up and get it done before work.  4:50 in the morning and I hit the snooze for another fifteen minutes, but at 5:10 I pulled it together and got the gear on.

Running in the morning is pretty awesome, there is hardly any traffic so all the lights turn pretty fast and because I just got done being lazy and sleeping I was pretty well rested.  Got my seven miles done in 59 min.  Got back, took a shower, and then biked five miles to work.  I wanted to put a facebook status reading “ran 7 miles, took a shower, and biked five miles before 7am”, but then I realized that I didn’t want to be that guy who posts stuff like that on his wall and makes you feel bad, because I have read stuff like that on FB and thought the same thing.

The best part of today was sticking to the plan and getting the run done.  I think back to the old Nathaniel and he would have skipped the run, and most likely found a way not to ride to work.

Just trying to stick to the plan, one day at a time.

Last year was a breakthrough year for me personally, as far as writing was concerned. After years of wanting to finish a novel. Making it a resolution each and every December only to get to the end of the year with nothing. 2018 was the year of change. Two major things that happened. First was to let go of the absurd notion that in order to put words on the page I had to be inspired by my muse. This idea was thrown in the trash where it joined crumpled wads of unfinished drafts. Second was the realization that to finish a novel I needed a process in order to write consistently. There was some initial trial and error in setting up a schedule that worked into my life but by the end of 2018 I had finished two books and was heading into the second round of edits on my first. What I want to do in this blog is share the experience of being a new writer by exploring my writing process as it develops. I’ll also be posting some of my short fiction and possibly book reviews time permitting.
