      I remember that i told you a few weeks back about the importance of finding  a mentor.  I have been listening to audio seminars conducted by Glenn Dietzel.  He really stresses the importance of a mentoring team as well as deep self reflection.  I used to think of writing as the end goal.  Now, i believe with all of the changes in publishing; that you must be thinking, at all times, on the best way to utilize what you write as not only an art form but also a business.  You can’t live on art alone :)!

      I think he is right.  I know that i always have a million ideas floating around in my head; but for some reason, it takes a titanic strength of will just to get them all written down and then another huge wave of commitment to do the rewrites.  I don’t know if it is always this difficult for other writer’s; but, i find that so many things become distractions.  I do my best to weed out the ones that matter little and to prioritize the ones that truly matter in my life.

      I am enjoying the online seminar’s that Glenn Dietzel is doing and i find  that they are very uplifting and encouraging.  If you would like to check it out take a look:  http://tinyurl.com/2fsnbg.
