Things are racing ahead. I’m working to complete a novel, pass exams and hold down a full time job. So writing a blog is the least of my worries, not doesn’t feature much on my to-do list. Not that I have a to-do list.
Right now, I’m procrastinating in studying for career changing exams. Literally. I do this by not studying, writing pages of my novels, day-dreaming and working too hard at work. You can probably say I’m uncommitted.
It’s not that I don’t study. I do but I don’t put in those mad mad mad hours I used to when I was much younger. I realised growing up, it was okay to fail provided you were going to keep on trying. Okay maybe I’ve stuck it at longer than some people. Taking the ‘do not give up’ thing a bit longer.
The problem is I’m past the stage where a person can honourably drop out. There are some points when a person doesn’t drop out…normally close to the finish line. Especially when it’s for nothing. So better to keep failing if you can afford to until something goes write. That’s what situation I am in now.
I’m not even sure it’s going to be that magically but I will get a sense of achievement. The same can be applied to my novel. I’m nearing the end and I know at some point I could have walked away. But no more. I need to finish it. I need to free my characters out into the beyond.
No wise sayings or anything. I’m just living, in the real world, writing down my dream world and trying to study for exams soon.
