Which Side Are You On

on June 8, 2014

From today’s Daily Compass:

A barbed wire barricade could be keeping you safe from dangers outside the fence, or it could be preventing you from accessing a place that you want – or even need – to go. And even when you’re standing there looking at the fence, it isn’t always obvious which one is the case.

When you look at your life, what kind of barricades do you see?

This really does highlight my struggles lately (as well as throughout my life). I see many barricades right now. I have one major goal in my life right now – finish my novel.

It is so difficult to finish that goal. So far, I have 8,000+ words written. Every time I sit down to write, I am distracted.

  • Children ask for my attention
  • Writing blogs (with tips and such) call to me
  • I get caught up in re-writes
  • Writer’s block get control
  • Life issues nag at me

So may things pull me away from writing. There is a barricade inside me that keeps me from writing it. So, I have put it aside for today. But I must write. So I am working on my oft-neglected blog. I thought it might help. A friend told me once that I should write every day – no matter what it is – just to keep the habit up. I will try. My novel weighs too heavily on me. Maybe I need a break from it – not from writing. I love to write. It is so cathartic. I have a writer’s journal (full of writing ideas) and a personal journal. Bot have gathered dust.

I will set a new goal today. Write something every day!

Let’s see how it goes….
