“No great deed is done by falterers who ask for certainty” (George Eliot)
FALTERER: Someone who is unsteady in purpose or action, as from loss of courage or confidence;
I don’t want to be a falterer but I think I might be one. At least sometimes.
I can lose my direction and my motivation and I can talk myself into all kinds of reasons to change my mind about what I am doing.
So today as I face my work, I will remind myself to keep going and not let my feelings of doubt or fear cause me to become unsteady in purpose or in action.
The fact that I don’t know where my story is going, is not a reason to stop writing my story.
I have to write as if I know where my story is going or with the idea of finding out as I write.
It seems simple. I am more likely to find out where my story is going if I am actually writing than if I am not.
Because purpose and action are what is required to do anything-
So even though I feel a bit blank and uninspired,
I will keep working through those uncomfortable feelings.
Because there is no writing without writing.
And there is no certainty. Keep going.
I hope you will do the same.
