I've been saying for several years that I'm going to write a novel. I've written/published over 50 articles in academic journals as well as a book on teaching but for some reason the idea of writing the novel is overwhelming. Thus, I found the following quote inspirational.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one...Mark Twain
Today I'm taking a five hour workshop on writing a novel! What have you been putting off?
