Procrastinating!

As a writer I've found the biggest time waster to be procrastination.  I search the web endlessly to find writers tips on Point of view, beginnings, endings and everything in between.  I'm hooked on writing memoir; creative non-fiction and articles but seem relentless in looking for just one more vital piece of information before I make a start.  I have an abundance of an ever increasing volume of data on how-to's that I really should be an expert on my chosen genre's but non-the-less, here I am re-thinking, delving deep into the world of overload, and to get started on actually writing something of substance still sits idle.  How many books,excerpts and articles must I read before I think I am ready to put my words out there for all to read?
No more researching; I am going to forge ahead with my inner voice and put together a piece of a life time...no pun intended.  I have stories to tell; some funny, some sad, some different, some that will serve as healing, some just because.  I'm on my way! Thank you blog for giving me the strength and courage to write and think more clearly.
