IWSG: The MiddleI kind of feel like I'm in the middle of everything in my life. Family, marriage, work/career and of course my writing. For some people, being in the middle sucks. For me, I guess it depends on what we're talking about. I remember early in my career, I didn't like being in the middle. I worked tirelessly to get ahead and for the most part I did, but then later I realized it wasn't what I wanted. That's life huh? Well, now that I'm on a different chapter in my life, I find myself still working endlessly and finding some success, but in truth, I'm still in the middle. Does being in the middle suck if your a writer? I guess at times it can, but I'm just trying to enjoy the ride of life and that includes the writing part of it.
Anyway, I guess being in the middle can get old, but it won't be forever so whenever I'm down about not getting further along, I find inspiration literally everywhere. The other day I was driving and Jimmy Eat World came on the radio and smiled because "Everything. Everything will be alright!"
So if you're worried about releasing your next book, if an agent will ever call you, if your sales will pick up or how many good reviews your book has, try not to let your great expectations get you down! And remember...."It just takes some time..."
Here's the song below. Hopefully, it will pick you up too! Enjoy!
Stay tuned for A-Z!
