One More Thing…

I was about to sign off for the night (it’s 11:00 pm right now) but something was itching at me, so I’m back online and posting this now.

Today was one of those days where there is just not enough hours in the day to do everything. I got up really early this morning to blog and then worked all day. I came home, spent time with the kids before starting on edits on Lost. I was thinking (just a few moments ago) how much I admire writers. The writers who work full time/ part time, have families and after everyone is asleep get on the computer to write until the wee hours in the night/morning. The authors who don’t sleep and only live on caffeine to get them through the day…you all are the ones I look up too!

So many times I feel like giving up because it’s so much work. But then I think…I’d be giving up my passion, my dreams and goals. I’d be giving up on these characters that are stuck in my head and want to have their story told. I’d be letting everyone down and letting myself down.

It’s so easy to say, “I’ll work on it tomorrow.” Or “I’ll just watch this movie and then start on it.” But that never happens. Now, don’t get me wrong…I’ll NEVER quit writing. This is what I’m meant to do! I love it and it’s what makes me happy.

I love the quotes:

“Never give up on something you really want. It’s difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret.”

“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.”

“Never give up on something you can’t go a day without thinking about.”

So again, authors near and far, authors who I know and others that I’ve never met…you all are amazing and all the work that you do is inspiring! Keep it up and never give up on your dreams!

Good night everyone!

    Jamie, that was lovely. Thank you for sharing such a positive thought and great affirmations. It’s so easy to get weighed down by all the things that can distract a writer from writing. Well done for getting through!
