HEY! - GUESS WHO'S BACK!!!

GUESS WHO'S BACK!!! After more than 5 years away, I have decided to revive my Blog. I was watching a video featuring the amazing Seth Godin being interviewed by Tom Bilyeu .  If you haven't seen them before, where have you been??? Go check them out by clicking on their names above.  Anyway, I was amazed that Seth Godin has over 7,000 blog posts and over a Million followers.  He posts at least once a day.  These numbers are inspiring but what really struck me is that he says that whatever you put out there, statistically 50% of it will be rubbish (I'm paraphrasing). If anyone has writer's block, then he asks them how many poor books, screenplays, etc. they have produced recently.  You can't wait for a muse to deliver the perfect book, if you don't just start writing.  Sure, 50% may be rubbish but, statistically, something has to be good.  Just write ... hey, I can do that . Anyway, my Blog has therefore received the proverbial dusting off and I am ready to go.
