Facing the uncertainty.

DSCF1389“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.
