I’m still having trouble keeping up with things, but I’m determined to improve on that next week. Sorry I’ve not been more present for KazNo this year, but I promise that I am supporting each and every one of you and would love you to continue writing toward your goals alongside me. Don’t let anything hold you back. Not even the big things… like fear:
“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”
― Steven Pressfield
I’m only on chapter 8 out of 22, so have a long way to go! But I know I’ll get there. I have to. Even with the migraine I had that wiped out all of yesterday. Even with the many, many things we all have to do that pull us away from our writing on a daily basis.
Here’s what the wonderful Natalie Goldberg says when people tell her they want to write but they have no time, or they have debts to pay, or they have five children and an elderly mother to care for:
“There is no excuse. If you want to write, write. This is your life. You are responsible for it. You will not live forever. Don’t wait. Make the time now, even if it is ten minutes once a week.”
― Natalie Goldberg
Ten minutes, once a week? Okay. So be it. Let’s keep on going down the track, see where we can end up by the the end of the month.
So, how did you do with #SpringKazNo this week? What are you hoping to achieve in the coming week?
Next check-in will be on Saturday, April 21st. I need to be up to Chapter 15 by then…
