You Can’t Avoid It Forever


Goals… they seem great when you plan them, but when it comes down to achieving them, procrastination is suddenly right there with you. That’s my dilemma right now with my book – write ten pages a day for a few weeks, revise the novel, find a good agent, then get published!

Simple, right?

Not so simple.

Lately I’ve been experimenting with various writing techniques, seeing how I may incorporate them into my book. The problem is, many of them either appear trite or unconventional, taking away the morale and literary momentum I had previously attained. Tomorrow will hopefully change that – time to take to the pen with a greater determination!

Coming up, my review on True Grit!

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
