I know you probably thought I'd forgotten, or given up on, Reverb10.
Surprise! I was writing them, but forgetting to post them.
There is a subtle difference.
So here's the next one. It's practically a bullet point list, but I did write it early in the morning - or maybe late at night - I don't know. Don't judge me.
What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?
I want to try to make a sundress. I also want to try to build a business so I can work from home. I also want to try to finish a novel I started a year ago; and try to get another novel sent to a publisher.
All of the above are things I wanted to try in 2010. What happened when I tried all those things this year - the sundress got put on hold when I had no iron and I had a bent needle on my sewing machine; building a business proved harder than anticipated and I gave up and restarted and gave up and restarted and then felt like God was telling me to slow down and wait for my time - not yet, not yet; I got too involved in the novel and then sank into depression and had to leave it alone; and I lost my other novel in my office which was/is a disaster area and only recently found it again.
What happened to me with all of this is that I felt worthless and like I couldn’t finish anything.
I know that isn’t true though. So I’m going to try again and this time I’m going to succeed.
