You know what I learned this week? You’re a lot more willing to show up for yourself and the work that matters to you when you accept that you are where you are without judgment. I am here, another 1043 words under my belt, good enough words, and I am content with that. Judging myself as behind or too slow or whatever does make the work better or faster. Forgiving yourself, now that’s how you get ahead in writing.
This week was a gift. It ended with such love and company after weeks of self-isolation. I wish everyone week could end like last week with a small gathering of funny people who love to laugh and eat just as much as I do. It makes facing the week and all the work there is to do so much easier.
I suppose I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really. – Tennessee Williams
