Writing Inspiration: Help, don’t help

Once you know your dream, to live it you must get your priorities in order. List at least three activities that don’t help you achieve your dream (such as watching movies every night, or posting pictures on Facebook) that you might pull back from. Next, list three activities (specifically “write, write, write”) that would help you achieve your goals. Cut from your daily life the activities on your first list and replace them with those on your second list.
