Stanley D. Williams, Ph.D., author of The Moral Premise, a brilliant resource for novelists and screenwriters, has a great blog in which he analyzes movies to evaluate their moral premise. Earlier this year he posted a description of his 12-Step Program for struggling writers. The first step:

 I admit that I am powerless to write like I should–that my creative life has become desolate and unmanageable through disuse.

That's me. As I write this post, I'm struggling with discouragement at my inability to get the images in my mind captured in words. But Step 2 in Dr. Williams' list:

I believe that a power greater than myself can restore me to sanity, and get my quota of words written each and every day.

I believe. Lord, help my unbelief.

My writer friends will want to check out the full list by clicking on this link: The Moral Premise Blog: The Writer's 12 Steps to Getting It Done. Shall we form an accountability group around these steps?

What do you need encouragement about this week?
