New day – new beginning.
Copy the successful. Sounds good – but for me it doesn’t work that easily. For one thing I get mired in looking at too many success stories and it becomes overwhelming. This person is successful this way and that person another way. Eventually one has to scream, “ENOUGH ALREADY!”
Right now I am at the point where I just need to push through the muck (most of it in my head) and just keep moving forward. No matter how small that forward is some movement is better than nothing.
Unless of course I am on the wrong road going in the wrong direction. In that case continuing forward is not a good thing at all. But how do I really know it is the wrong direction when I’m in the middle of it. How do I know if I am letting myself quit too soon, give up too easily or am I pursuing a soap bubble that is going to pop and being ridiculous continuing?
The answer is I don’t know.
Haven’t a clue until I think I actually publish the book and see if anything happens. Anything at all.
The last few days I have been looking for a job. Anything that will bring in an income. I have let myself get discouraged about this whole writing thing and just want to quit. But of course I find that getting a job is not that easy either.
Quitters never win and winners never quit. That’s a quote. But sometimes . . . one doesn’t win even if one doesn’t quit. That is the truth. I’m writing this and I’m sharing it just to sort of dump it out of my mind. Then I will pick myself up and keep going.
That’s the plan. Maybe things will turn around before the day is over. Often happens that way. Will check into tomorrow and we will see.
