I didn’t meet any of my writing goals this year. Not even close. But I’m not ashamed, and you shouldn’t be either. Let me tell you why.
It isn’t like I have a lot of it, you know? So when I sit down with my brain and mine it for words, that is time that I am not using to complete another task. That is critical time. And I know we all feel it.
Don’t let chaos be the excuse for why you can’t write or why you should get a different job or why you’re just not good enough. Let the chaos make you stronger, wiser, and resilient. Stop planning for chaos. Embrace it.
