If I have to stop during the scene, I try and leave it off in a place that I’ll be motivated to go on from the next time I sit down to write.

  1. Sometimes in life you have to take a hard look at things, where you’re going, where you’ve been. Success means something different to all of us. This post is about making sure you don’t lose what’s important to you (family, friends, etc.) while in pursuit of the dream. I think we can all learn good lessons from it.
