Success is not built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe.Sumner Redstone
There’s a lot of days where I’d happily throw my computer across the room if I knew I could get a new one. I’d rather avoid the discomfort that comes with all this. I’d happily write in notebooks where nobody would ever see my writing until they put me in the grave. Alas, there’s no growth keeping all your thoughts and lessons to yourself. Sharing is caring. Sharing helps people to relate to you and even more so to themselves.
So evenings like tonight, I have to remember my why. I have to remember how far I’ve come in the writing game. And that all this isn’t about approval or validation. It’s about reflection, it’s about staying connected with my writing, and most importantly it’s about adding to my life in a positive way.
I want to live while I write. I don’t want to be stuffed in a room all day pumping out books. On the flip side, I do thrive writing by myself for large amounts of hours a day. I guess I want it all. I want love and laughter and intimacy. I want to face different challenges alongside my fellow creatives, and I want to challenge myself in solitude.
These are thoughts and ideas that help me stay focused.
