My friend, Barley, (also known as Bara Hotchkiss) sent me this photo of her dog reading The Mom Who Took Off On Her Motorcycle along with her.
Which made my day, because I was having a tough time writing my new novel (no title as of yet–Yes, Please has already been taken).
Sometimes any kind of work — even writing — feels like drudgery. And even though I already wrote one novel, I realized that this fact doesn’t make writing the new one any easier.
What I also realized is that sometimes we just have to sit there and “shovel shit from a seated position,” as Stephen King described writing. Sometimes, we don’t have any energy but we just have to do the work. Whatever it is…and the next day is a bit better!
So if you’re having a hard time doing whatever, feeling like you are going through the motions, remember that some days are like that.
Just keep doing what you are supposed to be doing.
