Think about that.
I've been alive now for a quarter of a century and only now do I feel as if I know what I want in life. Only now do I know how to get what I want in life. I wasted 10 years through indecision, stupidity, stubbornness, close mindedness and fear. And every day i try to make up for lost time. Every single day I try to claw back the time I've wasted.
But this is not a day of recrimination. Or at least, it is not a day for recrimination alone. I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't draw attention of the monumental achievement that is the completion of draft one of my novel. I would be doing myself an injustice if I did not recognise that how profoundly that has changed my life.
I am a better man by virtue of committing myself to finishing something. I am a better man by virtue of the friends I have. I am a better man by realising that pain and struggle are transitory and are the price you pay for success. They are universe testing you to see how badly you want what you say you want and what you are prepared to do to get it.
I am in pain now. I will do almost anything with in reason to get Frostfeld Book 1.0 in your hands by summer. Success is forthcoming.
