What do I complain about? Things like...
- My job-that I spend 90% of my waking life there and is very stressful and prevents me from writing
- That I don't have enough time to write--because of dishes, laundry, etc.
- When I do write I feel like I can't seem to string a sentence together.
- Drivers that cut me off.
- That I can't write fast enough....
Do you see a theme here? Most of it is about writing, its about what I feel is my inability or interference with my writing.
Guess what.... I have to suck it up.
I read once where you have to take the circumstances of your life and work them. There will ALWAYS be people who do better than me, write faster, more beautifully, better plots, more gripping stories, make more money writing etc...I have to work with what I have. That's all I've got.
Bottom line, I want to write, I have to write, I will write.
So, here's my promise to myself: NO MORE COMPLAINING (sarcastic quips are accepted, but not this "whoa is me" junk). I am going to move FORWARD not backward, irregardless of what I encounter.
What do you wrestle with? What are you willing to change?
I am going to check in in a week or two and tell you if it works, let me know how it works for you.
