Plan vs. Mission

In the immortal words of Seth Godin:

There is nothing wrong with having a plan.

Plans are great.

But missions are better.

Missions survive when plans fail, and plans almost always fail.

My mission is to get back to regular blogging tonight.  Meanwhile, it’s off to a day in the life of a freelance writer: interviews, conference calls, drafts and lots and lots of copy.  And 4,700 words to write tonight to catch up on my NaNoWriMo goal.  Whew!  Happy writing, y’all.
