Universal Victories

universe I’ve been known to make a mountain out of a molehill. And tilt at windmills. I’ve tried to slay a dragon or two until Iffy showed up with Nikos in tow. I admit to having a soft spot for the dragon enforcer. I’ve also been known to make things a whole lot harder than they had be. I’m working on that. Which is why when this message from the Universe popped up in my inbox, I wanted to share it. I know several of you do the same thing.

Silver, it’s one kind of victory to slay a beast, move a mountain, and cross a chasm, but it’s another kind altogether to realize that the beast, the mountain, and the chasm were of your own design.

Hubba, hubba –

Now, Silver, you can move dem’ mountains or just make ’em disappear… by looking the other way.

I don’t have time to look the other way. I’m too busy moving mountains–or at least climbing them. I’m over the 40K hump on the current WIP. I’ll hit the peak when I can write THE END on the first draft. After that? It’s all a downhill flight on dragonback–no mountains or chasms to deal with. What victory are you celebrating today?

    Great message from The Universe today – yep, can totally relate.

    Well done on the 40K, you go, girl 🙂

      I’m steadily getting close to the 50K mark. I hope to hit “the end” around 49K so I can go back and layer in some things–descriptions, scents, etc.–that I skipped over on the first draft and that will put me at the correct word count for Mr. HEd. 🙂

  2. I need a shirt saying “There’s no molehill I can’t make larger.” LOL

    SQUEE on the 40K! It’s all gravy from here. You so totally rock.

    No victories on the horizon for today. Just decompressing after a molehill filled couple of weeks and getting ready to set all that aside so I can progress again. Speaking of mountains and molehills, I have a big pile in front of me that I’ve promised to turn into a book by September, so I need to get my head on straight and get ‘er done.

    • Silver James says:

      I want that shirt! Let me know when you design it. 😆

      Man, I have so many little molehills stashed around, all of them growing exponentially as I ignore them while working on the deadline WIP. If I don’t hit “the end” soon, those suckers will be the size of the Rockies! 😉

      Now go write!!!! Me, too. 😛

  3. Oh, how I can relate to this topic!!
    Our family has a phrase about hanging crape paper, making it worse then it is or was. My mom used it as a defense so if it didn’t get to that point, she would have still been ready, she didn’t like change or it not going her way-lol
    I am trying to not hang crape as much as she did now.
    Your not alone about having piles piled up*looks around and on tiptoes*
    High 5 on your word count., hang in there.

    • Silver James says:

      High five right back at’cha, Kimber! 🙂 Yeah, hanging crepe paper can be an exercise in frustration. Speaking of, how’s the unpacking and settling in going?
