L is for Leap of Faith
Leaping... can you picture it? Well if not you can see above that I found a lovely picture via google for you!!! Leaping is fun especially if you're a lemur!!
We as writers or creative beings do our best to take a leap of faith on an idea something we've dreamt up or just a solid idea that we think might be worth while to investigate. Sometimes it's a bust other times it's brilliant! I took a huge leap of faith with my current WIP based on to things a story I unknowlingly made up about my husband mixed with a dream, I took a chance now I will tell you that the story I started out with was not the story I began with however it evolved into something so much more that you wouldn't even know it was the same thing! All from one idea from one leap of faith I took a chance and that chance turned out to be the best idea ever!!!
So take a look at yourself today and even though you may have had a bad week or month or year of writing you still came up with one idea and you took a leap of faith! We all stand behind you and support you as you continue to allow your work to evolve into something specatacular! In time the pieces fall together I know last night revising was something that wasn't going to come easy but rather than beating myself up I chose to look at myself and remember that I wrote a book I spent time and energy and put it into something amazing though it's not finished yet the piece I did finish was amazing. So take those small victories and remember those when you're down!!! Continue to take a leap of faith for yourself!!
Are you leaping yet?
By the way today is a big day over at Christine's Journey!! It's the writing line game and it's super fun! Run over to her blog and add to the story I have done this on my blog before and thought about bringing it back so I'm glad to see others want to partake in it!!!
