A Dream is Not Enough

"What's talked about is a dream.
What's envisioned is exciting.
What's planned becomes possible.
What's scheduled is real."
-Anthony Robbins

Dreams are a dime a dozen. Don’t get me wrong, dreams are important. I love to collect inspirational quotes. I have a framed picture on my wall that says “Nothing happens without a dream". We can dream all we want, but until we take definite steps toward making that dream come true, it will never become reality.

You have to do the work. Not all at once. Not more than you can handle at one time. But day by day. Page by page. Word by word.

Goal setting is important, so much so that I may have even talked about it here before. But right now I'm getting ready to start a new manuscript and I'm working out a plan of how many words I need to write a day to reach my goal. Then it's simply a matter of sitting down and putting in the time with the characters, letting them live out their romance, giving them their happy ending. After maybe torturing them just a little bit. And one word at a time, it will happen.

So dream your dreams. Envision them coming true. Plan how to get there. Schedule the work.

Then DO the work.
