Notes from the Inner War

My girlfriend Diana and I were shooting a video for the “Warrior Archetype” series when we came upon this charming country cottage.

It reminded me of a place I once lived in, at a critical juncture in my long struggle to learn how to write.

A short book about the writing of a first novel: for Steve, The Legend of Bagger Vance. Having failed with three earlier attempts at novels, here's how Steve finally succeeded.

Amateurs have amateur habits. Pros have pro habits. When we turn pro, we give up the comfortable life but we find our power. Steve answers the question, "How do we overcome Resistance?"

    As I listened to this for the second time, I thought about another Stephen I’ve enjoyed over the years. Stephen Covey writes somewhere in 7 Habits of Highly Effective People that, “Private Victories always precede public victories.”
