So…one down, a whole bunch more to go. All it takes is typing “Chapter 1.” Or “Prologue.” Depending on the story. Even if I feel like I can’t. Even if there doesn’t seem to be a story. But whenever I stare a that blank document on my monitor, I always remember what Nora Roberts is so often quoted as saying, “You can’t fix a blank page.” You can’t. Words matter. Even lousy words with no plot. Because I can. Because it’s a start. And once those first hesitant words start, momentum does build. Stories and characters emerge. Just like the Universe says…
Believing you can, you can. Though you might not.
Believing you can’t, won’t change that you can. It just hides it.
Whereas simply getting started, however timid your first steps are, Silver, and consistently moving in the direction of your dreams day after day, will eventually create such unstoppable momentum, you’ll find it nearly impossible to believe that there was ever a time when you wavered.
Let’s give them something to talk about –
