All the necessary tools, and still no novel.
The missing ingredient?
Discipline. Determination. The tough-as-nails, Clint Eastwood, kind of determination that doesn't get sidetracked by the MSN story on fashion faux pas. The square-jawed resolve that walks 70 miles of desert to the nearest town although my horse is lame, the canteen empty, and saloon closed for repairs. The grit to stay in my chair and actually WRITE rather than playing Words with Friends on my phone.
Or maybe a Costco-sized bottle of this would do the trick. And could someone take away my phone?
