My lovely friend Laura Bruno Lilly tagged me in a challenge to provide three quotes in three days. I have been trying to feel inspired, but just can’t find an appropriate quote. However, writing has been a wily distraction; unbelievably, I may be as close to the end as is possible. Perhaps on Friday I will actually complete The Hawk.
In the meantime, hehehe…. But really, that novel’s conclusion has sneaked up on me; recently I’ve written two chapters just like in the old days, although now it takes more than merely the morning to finish my thoughts. Still, it’s a fantastic feeling, or rather, a numbing sensation; is this real or am I kidding myself? The End, oh sure, uh-huh, right…. Good things come to those who wait rattled around in my brain, but when I looked it up, that phrase is attributed to a ketchup commercial, so I’m not actually going to employ it as my quote. But dangit, truer words are rarely spoken.
There have been numerous occasions during the construction of this saga where I have nearly given up, yet far within me lies a door behind which the stories dwell, and for whatever reason I’ve just kept knocking at it, unable to tear myself away. Now it’s as though I am ready to step over that threshold, and the tangle of emotions are indeed overwhelming. And if I feel this way with a chapter remaining, how the heck am I gonna be when it’s finished?
Dude…. Instead I’m posting pictures of my garden, and in a couple of days we’ll see what happens. If nothing else, I am almost done, which honestly seems unreal. When it becomes the truth, I’ll post a note. For now, enjoy however spring appears in your neck of the woods. Good things do comes to those who persevere, lol.
