I used two techniques.

1. I committed to writing everyday. That was non-negotiable. It could be for 1 hour, it could be for 15 minutes, but I committed to writing everyday until the book was done.

2. The outline I created before I started writing helped me a lot. It was like my own personal GPS, so it provided comfort. Sometimes I would come to the next item on the list and I had nothing, just nothing. Other times I would begin to write and the general idea of what I wanted to say was there but not the way I wanted to say it. I never let any of those two things hold up production.

Instead I looked at another part of the outline that seemed easier to turn on the writing faucet and wrote there instead (like filling in different parts of a puzzle knowing it would all fit together in the end). So if I had writers block in one area, I would jump to another area where it was easier to write. The outline helped in this. But one thing I never did was put my hands in the air and go, "I have nothing, I shouldn't try". I may go back and make it better, even erase and rewrite, but I always wrote.(less)

Our world is so different without our friends. This devastating loss also brought tremendous gratitude for the friendships I’m blessed to have. It reminded me of how precious these relationships are and all the amazing things I learned about friendships over the years. I wanted to share what I learned.

I also realized that friendship was the most common bond of any rich human relationship and in this sense, we build friendships with our spouses, family members, business partners and people in our community. We're always interacting with each other. So it was a great opportunity to share lessons learned in one kind of human relationship knowing it was fully applicable in all of them.(less)

In 2015 many fantastic movies will be released, but Liam Neeson’s Taken 3 is not one of them. Even though I saw it at the theatre on half-price Tuesday, and saved two mortgage payments by sneaking in my homemade popcorn and coke, I still felt robbed. This was the first time I’d seen an audience […]
