The attack du jour is distraction by other good things. In a fit of irony, in the last two weeks I’ve counseled two of my friends to watch out for being distracted away from mission by good things – if the good things aren’t part of your mission, you can’t afford to let yourself get pulled away. Then I let the same thing happen to myself, had to give myself the same speech, and then Pastor Dan covered it as part of his sermon last night.
I put about another 3K words down this weekend, after giving myself a stern talking to, and after I get these words out of my head, I’m back to work. I’m at about 32,500 words now… goal at 50-80K.
Et voila! I have something to write about today. Thank you, God. Off to write a personal modesty assessment.
If you’re one of my buddies and want to read a bit of the book, just drop me a line and I’ll send you a section to throw things at.
