365 Things

Busy reading – 365 Things I Learned the Hard Way (So You Don’t Have To) (The Digital Writer) [Kindle Edition], The Digital Writer (Author), Jonathan Wondrusch (Illustrator).

Part of the book description stated:

You can write any future you want to.

“The key to success is deciding the future you want, and then determining the cost of that future and whether or not you’re willing to pay the price. If you are, then you must to do everything possible to keep your eye on the prize until you can see the gold finally glistening in your hand.”

Being a struggling writer, I found this extremely uplifting; right up until the postman arrived and dumped the month end bills into my letter box!

I sat back in my chair, staring at the pile of misery and wondered how creative this writer was going to get this month. I looked across at the goldfish bowl, former home of the recently departed ‘Goldie’ and now residence to all the current bills.

The bowl runneth over; again!

Well, one thing was for sure. In the real world of struggling writers, I was in good company. The second revelation was that I was going to need a bigger goldfish bowl.

It was time for a brisk walk outside to clear the depression. Then a cup of tea and back to reading 365 Things.
