the Power

Back from Manila. Most significant part of the haul was something I bought on a whim, the last volume of David Mack's Kabuki. An excerpt:

I come to realise that writing is like physical exercise. What counts is how much you can do after you think you are done.

Then the real challenge begins. If you push through the barriers of your comfort zone, you hit a second wind. It is mostly just showing up and doing it that counts.

Sometimes it is painful. You might want to do something else. And you can think of infinite reasons to stop.

I discover 'The Power of Positive Doing.'

Positive thinking is great. It's a nice first step. But if you don't do the 'Positive Doing', it only takes you so far.

Want to quote a load more, plus post about the great wedding I attended and Avatar and all, but I gots things that need to get done. :)
