I’ve been sneaking times to write here and there, by hand in my golden journal. It doesn’t feel like I’ve been writing much and that progress has been slow as I flit between a number of projects.
Today I turned the page of my notebook and realised I was half-way though!
It’s a physical sign of the writing I’d been doing.
I could actually see the progress even though it didn’t feel like it. Sometimes I have the same journal for months, especially if I’m not doing much writing by hand. It was a good pick me up to know that ever so slowly I’ve written enough in my notebook to be half-way.
Half-way to where? To a new notebook. By finishing a notebook, it gives me the satisfaction of achievement. And I then get to look forward to starting a new notebook which is exciting and fun. This all helps me to keep motivated and enthusiastic to write.
It’s the little things like this which help me to keep writing.
