Today was a good day, nothing strange to share. 🙂 No writer’s block, no hit on the head. Just relaxed and writing on my book. I thought it would be a perfect time to share a photo of my baby, my beautiful munchkin, Lupo Piccolo.
This weekend marks the first time I have been away from him overnight since May, when I vacationed for a week on the Florida beach. Beautiful, wonderful, serene place to rest and soak up poetry and creativity for writing.
I think sometimes we writers dream of the big break, that moment when our book is on the shelves, but I just love the writing process. The entire experience of losing yourself in a story, plunging down that deep hole and into another world. It’s amazing. It’s a gift. One I intend to thoroughly enjoy.
Sometimes I’ll catch myself thinking about the end goal of being published, and almost wishing I was already there. But I stop myself, pull my thoughts back to the present, and remind myself to enjoy the process. To not let this gift, that I will never have again, not with this book, slide past unnoticed. I want to revel in the process. I want to sink into it like slipping between cool sheets on a hot summer night. I must never forget to truly experience the present while working toward my future.
Enjoy the process of your life.
(Note to self: buy more notebooks…)
