I have been writing my first book. I use my lunch hour at work to edit the book. I started carrying a journal with me several months ago. It has become my idea and life lessons book. It is actually becoming something that means a lot to me.
When I get to work I set it out on my desk because throughout the day I will think of blog posts, ideas, or about things going on in my life. When I think of these things–I write them down.
I constantly doubt the creative journey I am on. Yet I keep on it. Life is just difficult sometimes. We feel lost, sad, depressed, and confused. It’s hard to create when we feel like quitting life, yet something in me says keep going. Something tells me that if I keep going I will discover the true way I was meant to create.
Perhaps this blogging thing is just a tool that will uncover what I am really meant to do, or perhaps it is the thing. I don’t know what it is. I just know I have to do something with my ideas, and have an inherent need to create.
The following article inspired me this morning to keep going. Author, Jonathan Stone, has published five novels and in this article he discusses how he found the time to write during his commute to work. Check it out. I think it provides a nice picture of possibilities. His writing and life developed, and so does ours. He started, and look where he is now.
