Wow. People all around me are making things happen. Great things. Things they’ve worked so hard for, with something to show for it.
I can let this discourage me. Compare myself to them. Get lost in the woe is me…
But I won’t. Not this time, at least. I feel genuine pride for my friends. And motivation and inspiration to make my own things happen. I’m not sure what all of those things are yet, but I’m inspired.
I pulled the novel up on my computer for the first time in a long, long time. And what’s been stopping me for so long is the intimidation of finishing my tense shift. (I’ve flopped back and forth more than once). And I realized I don’t have far to go to finish. So I’m going to finish. I’m not entirely sure when, but it’s going to happen.
No, wait. I’m giving myself a deadline. February. By February 14th, my tense shift will be completed.
