Inspiration, Perspiration, or Priority?

There are as many reasons to put down a project as there are to complete them.
 
When you want to finish a project, you finish it.
 
Priority is one of my favorite words. When your project is a priority, it completes itself.
 
There are three steps to every writing project:
Inspiration: Aha!, the idea, the energetic starting point of the creative process.
 
Perspiration: The nuts and bolts, effort, and time it takes to accomplish the project.
 
Priority: The Essential Element required for completing the project.
 
When you drop a project, or allow distractions to postpone completion, your project failed the priority test. The specific reasons for omitting this element are too numerous to list here, but it boils down to only one:
 
Fear
Of failure
Of inadequacy
Of ignorance
Of value
Of success
 
First you identify it, then you face it, then you do it….or not.
