Do I have what it takes?
This question floats through my mind at regular intervals. Whether in terms of writing, mothering, being a friend or wife, it's always the same misgivings. Life is so crazy these days as I try to be the friend, mother and wife. Sadly, writer is not even in the backseat anymore. It's running behind the car down the interstate. It's tragic really. I get on an inspired writing streak and I can see the end and it's damn exciting....then, Monday comes and life resumes and I just can't seem to fit it in. I need to finish Flash because it's good. Of course I would say that, I'm writing it, but seriously, the idea is different and exciting and it's marketable. It's more marketable than Hourglass, as much as it saddens me to admit it. The facts are what they are. Don't worry though, I'm in no way giving up on that book. I'm just saying it may not be "the one."
So tonight I'm hoping and praying that yes, I am good enough, at everything I attempt to do. I've got to find a way to write. I love it. It's in my soul and I know it's my calling! I need to make time for it because YES! I have what it takes...I just need to take the time to have it! That looks easy on paper...hmm....
