in which Kitteh shrinks away oodles of fluff

On a blog I follow, Rachael Herron had a great post called”The Only Two Things You Must Do To Be A Writer.” Looking over it again today, I was struck by this part – and the fact that it also applies to weight loss, and pretty much ANY goal we set ourselves.

You don’t have to be published to call yourself a writer.

You do have to write.

As John Scalzi so succinctly said, 

So: Do you want to write or don’t you? If your answer is “yes, but,” then here’s a small editing tip: what you’re doing is using six letters and two words to say “no.” And that’s fine. Just don’t kid yourself as to what “yes, but” means.

“What you are doing is using six letters and two words to say ‘NO'” – how true is THAT?

So when I say “I want to eat well, but…” or “I want to lose weight, but…” or “I will TRY to work out, but…”

Yeah. Deep, right?
