*Who am I kidding? I cannot write this kind of book. I don’t even know the kind of book I can write, but it is not this. Maybe I should just give it up. Okay, fine. I give up. BUT THEN WHAT?? What then would I write?
*What story calls from my soul, demanding to be told? That is tough to find sometimes. But keep looking. Keep listening. It will be worth it.
*Do not lose faith. Each story is its own entity. It cannot be anything other than itself, just as you cannot be anything other than yourself.
*Right now, it’s just about continuing. The ability to make this happen. The ability to reach the end. That is all it is about right now. Continuing.
*When I have scenes that I don’t want to write, it is usually because I have lost my voice somehow—I no longer know what/how to say it. Find the voice again and the words will come.
*Having compassion for ourselves and where we are is one of the most important things. Do not forget.
*It is amazing how 238 little words can bring me such hope and joy. And it will allow me to write the next bit because I know that this bit exists.
Hoping these words bring you a little encouragement if you find yourself needing it.
