I’m not ready to face all of my insecurities this month, there are just too many to count but the umbrella residing over them is TIME. It’s ruthless. It’s already the fifth month of the year. Can you believe it?
Time seems to speed along without a care for anything or anyone. I’m not sure why I am panicking. My time management skills are good and I’ve hit every target I’ve set for myself so far this year. But to complete the cycle of writing, from that first word to the edited and completed project is such a long process; I do lose patience. I want to see results a lot quicker and to actually earn a cent or two would be rather nice. Maybe that’s why I’m a bit jittery – my overall target for this year is to see some payback for the investment I’ve ploughed into my writing career so far.
Maybe Einstein was right when he said: The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
Do you fret about time?
