A few people have asked me what was the most important thing that helped me finish my book. I told them, It wasn’t quitting a job or meditating daily. These things can help, but they don’t keep you in the lab or in your writing space any longer.
I tell everyone, writing is simple, but we make it hard. We enter the page with our to-do lists churning, episodes from our day circulating, and thoughts of how to finish-up and write faster as our goal.
Then we sigh, type in a web address, and forget why we even sat down to make magic and change the world.
Your personal process for writing, your routine or your ritual before you approach the canvas, can prevent this lack of focus, but what truly keeps you going is your love for sculpting new worlds, crafting new advice, and sharing new experiences one letter at a time.
Finishing is simple. It’s a commitment to yourself that simply boils down to your passion to stay in your good place, your understanding that no one is there but you, and your willingness to fulfill your mission no matter the noise, the distractions, or the circumstance.
My first book Dorean Black, is about discovering purpose in a world that is set-up to distract you from what’s really important. There is also love, life is usually about love. You can pre-order a copy today. There’s a link right here, Dorean Black.
Write some words, too. Share them if you want. Love yourself and keep creating a magnificent world.
