Solution to Writing Obstacle No. 21:

“I really am too busy to write!”

If you really are too busy to fit in fifteen minutes of writing on at least two or three days a week, then my workbook cannot help you.

I recommend that you plan, in the very near future, a walk on your own where you can really think about your life. If taking this time off means you cannot meet some obligations, do it anyway. Serious thinking about the quality and direction of your life is in order.
