Tempis Fugit

That light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming locomotive?
Well. That changes things, doesn’t it?

I spent a lot of years making a living, making excuses. Now I feel like I’m trying to beat the train to the railroad crossing.

“Sometimes people say to me, “I want to write, but I have five kids, a full-time job, a wife who beats me, a tremendous debt to my parents,” and so on.

I say to them, “There is no excuse. If you want to write, write. This is your life. You are responsible for it. You will not live forever. Don’t wait. Make the time now, even if it is ten minutes once a week.”
