E is for...
Without it, we can't do anything. Seriously. Ever try writing something you were less than thrilled about? You know...like a term paper (hence the absence from the blogverse this week). In order to get through things, in order to plow through the tedious portions that come with every task, you have to be excited about what you're doing.
Nothing's perfect. Even when we're all best selling authors, having tea with J.K. and lunch with Stephen and Neil, without an all consuming passionate excitement about our next project, we'll fizzle. Falter. Fall.
Whatever it takes to stay excited about your project, do it. Visit a museum, watch a documentary on your topic, listen to music, take a walk, take surf lessons. Go skydiving! Just stay excited!
Life's too short for anything else.
