Really, this just means to not let anything get in the way of your writing. I know I could have what seems like a million and one things to keep me from writing. To be honest, I think I let many excuses get in the way of doing so. If I was more disciplined I think I could find the time I need. But, for whatever reason, I can’t seem to find the motivation within myself to become disciplined. It’s almost like it’s a vicious cycle.
I know right now it has a lot to do with the time of year. You might be thinking that’s it’s because it’s Christmas time, but it’s not. More than anything it has to do with what would’ve been my daughter’s 14th birthday coming up on December 29. It’s hard to believe that fourteen years ago I was pregnant at this time and in about two weeks I’d be delivering my precious little girl only to have her gone 8 1/2 years later. Life has a funny way of working out with so many times not going in the direction you thought or hoped it would.
I know that sometime in January my internal motivator will kick back on and I’ll be off writing and editing both my fiction story as well as my daughter’s story. But for now, I know there’s no sense in fighting it. I know it’ll all be done in God’s timing and not my own.

Amen, and amen, about God’s timing while grieving.

Thank you Jean. God always seems to have us do everything at the just the right time. We just have to be patient as He reveals His will to us.
