Life goes, clicking along, time slipping, easy until
lost, Lord, I’m lost
Solutions, ideas, suggestions, all well-meaning
Makes me scream silent
This was written in response to the Five Minute Friday prompt: Motivate. It’s rather ironic that I struggled deeply with this week’s prompt. The rules are: write for 5 minutes and no editing.
I pretty much destroyed all the rules this week.
This is the result of my fourth go at this prompt. I still hate it…and, in addition, I’m still in the quagmire of plot problems and writer’s block for a novel starring Sam and his wife Charlotte (you met them in short stories here and here).
I know all the suggestions, all the tricks, but every time I throw myself at this, it shatters at my feet.
But I sit behind the computer and cling to what I know and have a go again…
I’m learning that questioning yourself, your faith, your work, isn’t always a bad thing.
As scary as doubt is, it is often the doorway to new, unseen discoveries.
How about you? Where are you struggling to motivate yourself?
