Push Through

On one of the blogs to the right came the advice this week to "push through." It came at just the right time for me.

I have a story that is in danger of becoming a victim of the premature-edit-cycle.

Thanks to a timely piece, I now have the confidence to push through to the end. It's already a mess. I can fix it later. The important thing for the content creation cycle is to write - get the story down.

Andy taught me a lesson he himself had learned : Make a mess, then clean it up.

I needed that to be : Make a completed mess, then clean it up.

I miss Andy J. After thirty years, we're all different people.

Of course, he'll be splitting wood in the back yard at 80. See. I was listening, once.

Now, to go and run this one to the end tonight. I know where I want it to go. I'm going to drive it there.
