Yes, it has happened again… I went silent.
The truth of the matter is that I’m trying to get finished my novel, the one I started in November 2016. It’s very nearly there, and it is just a question of a few more days, if I keep at it.
This is what i wanted to talk about, because it is so very easy to put off finishing stuff, whether it is writing a novel, or building a piece of furniture that’s needed, or sorting out a cupboard… there is an endless list this applies to. What I have been learning is that even if you spend a little time every day, it starts to get done. The pile reduces, the building gets complete, the story gets written. Even if I only have ten minutes that day, (like I did this morning, thanks to the computer going bananas,) I still grab it. Every little chance is still a chance. And it might be that the little chances are all you will have. Waiting for the big moment to do it might never materialise.
It was something of a crux moment for me, getting back into full swing, and pushing hard to finish the novel. I say this, because at the same time, I saw two videos on YouTube, and it confirmed what I was doing, in a sense. I’m going to share them with you all, because I felt they were inspirational, and who knows… maybe they could help someone reading this blog entry?
(As a warning, be aware that strong language is used in the first one, and I think also the second one. Certainly has been used in others of his videos, so please be advised!)
I hope to have finished the novel in the next few days, and hopefully, I’ll be able to start new topics on here… and be more around.
