Thursday Thoughts: Universal Miracle

Sometimes, completing a manuscript feels like a miracle. Writers love when a book seems to write itself. Inspiration is front and center, the words flow from our imaginations to our fingertips and appear on screen as we typity-type-type away. Then there are books we want to write–have a deep-seated need to tell the story and it’s like scooping out a hole in quicksand. Good thing the Universe has a remedy for this. And it’s so simple, really, when you stop and think about it.

The secret to performing miracles, Silver, lies in:

1. Knowing your desired outcome.
2. Not knowing how you’ll pull it off.
3. Proceeding anyway.

Once again, Silver, taking action saves the day.

And that’s how it’s done my friends. Take action, which means butt in chair, hands on keyboard. We got this, right? Write! Sometimes, progress is measured in a few words. Sometimes, in a chapter. As long as we’re taking action, stuff gets done–whether writing or doing anything in life. What action will you take today?

  1. I thought I commented on this yesterday. I think I meant to and then got distracted by life. I’m glad you’re taking action and getting stuffs done with your writing. Go, you! I can’t wait to read your ‘new’ books. You know me and pre-orders, though, so I’ll pick them up when they drop. Yay! It’s nice to finally have funds in the book budget again.

    As for taking action myself? I flow whichever way the work takes me – which is often several directions at once – and by the time I’m home, I don’t want to act on anything. I did jump right into making dinner when I got home last night. Parmesan-encrusted pork chops. Yummers.

      Good think you can multi-task! Writing and working fulltime is hard! I remember those days. And I don’t miss them. Not. At. All! Hang in there. And if I don’t get my patoot in gear, the next book won ‘t be up for it’s “debut.” Later, tater.
