Thanks Susan! These are great tips. And you're right, I love how you made a commitment to just do it. No excuses. And, I hear you. I love having something concrete to guide me! I especially like your 'writing to the SAME music' suggestion. What a great idea! I was a music major in college and especially love instrumental pieces, like classical and smooth jazz. I'll start creating my 'writing playlist' tonight! Thanks again for your encouragement.
