As my pastor sometimes says, “With every vision comes the opposition!”
Boy! I don’t know if opposing yourself counts as opposition but it sure seems like it should right about now.
Would you believe it if I told you I have not written a thing since my last post? Well, I shouldn’t say I haven’t written anything. I’ve written numerous legal opinions, contracts, e-mails, Whatsapp messages, grocery store lists and cheques since my last note. Doesn’t it sound exhausting just reading it?
I am quite glad at this point that I gave myself an entire year to complete the book, but now I’m hoping that a year is enough time!
To add insult to injury, I have been having second thoughts about my idea for the novel. While I still believe it’s a great idea for a novel, I want to make sure that I do justice to the idea and I have not yet determined whether a year (now only EIGHT MONTHS!) will provide me with enough time to develop the story in the way I think it ought to be. Of course, sitting around thinking about it for the last couple of months has not helped any! I am no closer to completing the book or even the synopsis for the book.
Every. day. I remember that I need to write but it seems to elude me like an ‘A’ on a French exam.
Anyone out there have any advice on how I can get this writing train moving? Things are starting to get desperate if I’m going to achieve my goal by October 2018!
