Never Give Up
The last couple of weeks, I’ve been over it. I didn’t want to deal with writing my stupid blog anymore. Writing is hard. I’m not motivated. It’s too much work. It’s much easier to just go to the beach or watch a movie.
Today I came across this image I saved on my desktop. Damn you clever meme of a cute little mouse in a football helmet! I won’t give up. I’m going to write a dang book even if it takes me 10 years. (Sweet Jesus, it better not take 10 years.)
Some days you want to give up. That feeling comes and goes all too often for me. Then I remember that if I just write for 10 minutes a day, that’s 3650 minutes a year and 36500 minutes in 10 years. I’m not a mathematician or anything but that seems like a lot of writing.
I guess I’m more like the hare than the tortoise. Screw slow and steady, I want to pull a Jack Keroac and stay up for 5 weeks straight writing my generation’s “On the Road.”
I still have hope that I will make the time to write a book in the next 3 months, but maybe I should give this tortoise method a try. Hmmmm.
