Moving Forward

Hi everyone,

I hope October is treating you well 🙂 The start of the month was filled with the usual ups and downs I’ve come to expect. However this week has been slightly different. I think sometimes you reach a point mentally where you come to a screeching halt at a crossroads, stare at the options in front of you and wonder what direction you should go. Over thinking (which is something I admit to being guilty of at times), can leave you frozen in place, allowing doubt to seep in and force you to backtrack. The start of this week found me approaching the crossroads and I’ll admit to being scared I might end up stuck there, but something happened. The clarity I thought I’d lost, returned, bringing with it a fresh, stronger sense of determination. My feet never froze, I never stopped, I continued walking, and the moment the crossroads were behind me I felt a weight lift off my shoulders.

Today the words flowed, tentative plans were worked on, and my determination helped to start forging a way forward. Will I stumble occasionally? Yes. After all I’m human and an occasional slip can in a way be a fresh lesson to take on board.

I will do my best to keep you all up to date on how things are going in my writing wolrd and how my plans are progressing. You can also follow me on my Facebook page where I will post small updates 2 to 3 times a week.

That’s all for now, so back to writing I go 🙂

Raven.
