Climb every mountain…
…follow every dream, carry on writing, even when it makes you wanna scream!
That’s how I feel, sometimes. The days when trying to create a new world, and people it with characters worth loving or hating, seems so difficult I just want to climb into bed and pull the covers over my head.
But I don’t. I continue to try. To write gives my life meaning. I don’t really have a choice, I must write, or end up utterly miserable. That said, some days it’s like scaling a mountain. I pummel my brain for new ideas, and it refuses to cooperate. I end up penning utter drivel, which makes me even more miserable.
When I was very young, I remember reading about the Greek trickster, Sisyphus, condemned to roll a boulder up a steep slope, only to watch it roll back down again. Talk about frustrating! That’s exactly how I feel sometimes.
However, onwards and, hopefully, upwards.
