Are you thinking:

This writing project is stupid. I’m not curing cancer or saving lives. It’s just stupid.

I met a dancer one time who said she danced for “The good of the movement.” That dancing by itself was important.

In other words we decide what is important. I believe that having an interest in something bigger than yourself is what makes life worth living. Completing a book fits that category.

It doesn’t matter what kind of book. The project is worth the exercise even if the content is only to entertain…which I also believe is a worthwhile goal.

Write for the good of the movement.

Got it? Good. Ass on chair. Fingers on keyboard. Type!
