Have you finished your short story?  Your novel?  Have you written your synopsis and query letters?  Jump start your day-mine begins at 6 am-with non-writing related events that always shape how my writing day will proceed.  Life is best served and rewarded in a balance.  The above phrase originated with the Augustan Poet Horace-20 BC, it meant “pluck the day” and the English translated it to SEIZE THE DAY!  Since it’s the July 4th weekend it seems appropriate to foster the red, white and blue especially with food.  LA Carlson
