It’s a week away from Christmas, and 13 days away from a new year. During the past two months my blogs, hobbies and personal development have waned. It was replaced with drama, trials and life transition. My focus got off, and when it did I cut off a part of me that I need to survive.
I have wondered if I should ever write again, if I can really ever help people, and what in the world I am even doing. I mean I don’t know if I ever want to write a book. Isn’t that what writers are supposed to do? Isn’t all of our writing just preparation for “the book”? Because writing any other way can’t have any real meaning? Can it?
So now what?
So now the drama is subsiding, the trial is ending, and the life transition is becoming my new norm. So now what?
Well for whatever reason I know I need to write, and create in some way. I yearn for it. When I don’t do it I feel like something is missing. I am yearning. I also find that nothing helps me deal with inner turmoil better than creating. At the moment I create I am free. I am only a woman and am free to be me.
After a year of blogging I have a better idea of what is working and what isn’t. I am not ready to get too serious about SEO analytics yet, though I understand the need to. I am pretty sure my desire is to help others achieve great things, and not so sure that writing a book is what I want to need to do to accomplish that.
I am going to start 2017 with the goal of writing regularly, and ensuring that I do so regardless of what is going on in my life. So I guess we call it consistency. I am going to be consistent.
I have spent the past year assessing my life and have a realistic and clear picture of who I am. With this in mind I am ready to start figuring out where I want to go. You know what? No one formula helped me to figure it out. It has taken a lot of soul searching, some tears, getting used to a lot of life change, and remembering who I was before a lot of life happened.
What About You?
I believe that everyone is an artist, and has something to create.
I don’t know where you should start, or how you can get to the place where you can create.
Can you just start? Starting on January 1st can you just do it, and do it consistently.
Perhaps if you do, then at this time next year you will have an idea of where you are going with your art, and what the next steps are for developing it.
