Belated Happy New Year to all. It’s been a crazy few weeks but things are beginning to settle down into a sort of routine. When I was younger I dreaded the word “routine.” I’ve come to realize predictable days need to be cherished.
I get more accomplished when one day follows the same pattern as the day before. I can plan, and more importantly, carry out the schedule. Writing isn’t easy. Knowing what I expect to accomplish during working hours is something of a Godsend, even if it is mundane. Later today I will edit – if only for an hour. The anticipation of what I might accomplish during that hour thrills me. Will the book finally be good enough to entice an agent or editor? Is it possible I will climb over that barrier that has been holding me back from being the author I want to be? My humdrum routine will be anything but if it results in the victory I need to place my name on the “A” list!
How about you? What have you been putting off because you think it’s boring?
My wish for everybody for 2021 is the freedom to gather with friends and family without fear of contracting a deadly disease. May you all have wings and the freedom to reach new heights in search of your wildest dreams!
