Planning to write is not writing. Outlining a book is not writing. Researching is not writing. Talking to people about what you are doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing.

Today, I received letters from two NIOC COs, a NIOC XO, a NIOD OIC, a retired Navy Captain colleague, my sister, a priest and a NWC graduate attending the Warfighting school. As you can imagine, it was a very good day for me. These men and my sister understand what it means to write.
As per H.L. Mencken's example, I will send out my responses by day's end. I will be writing.
