I will create wonderful things, joyfully, courageously, and with reckless abandon.
Well, now we come to the hard part. The part I have been failing at for months on end. The part I'm not sure I can ever achieve again. The part that all the other pieces are trying to lead me to.
I will write stories I would want to read. Stories I feel excited about.
I will let go of my need for worldly rewards. (Where have I heard that before?)
I will set reasonable goals.
I will focus on daily writing, preferably for at least two hours a day.
I will practice believing that it matters. (See this list from Mette Harrison)
I work on knowledge-time-enthusiasm and relaxed-focused-prepared. (See these posts to find out what I mean here.)
I am still not having much success in actually creating anything. But I am trying. Honestly whenever I sit down to write, I am overwhelmed with fear and doubt. I know these things take time, so I will continue to work and to pray so I can get where I want to be.
