I almost gave up. I feel like I have a second full time job. I sometimes get impatient;I want to be finished. I feel like the first book is always the hardest. It can make or break you, that is why it drives you crazy to make sure it is perfect. The only problem with that, it will never be perfect. I want so much for this to happen that I stress. I've set myself a writing schedule, but sometimes I can't discipline myself to follow it. People ask me "Isn't this your dream?" Yes, it is. However, sometimes I feel overwhelmed and need to take a step back. Sometimes you have to put in perspective everything around you. After years of doubting myself to finish my book, I have a new sense of motivation. Motivation to not look back and always wonder. There is Greek script that I think really explains everything.
Meraki- Doing something with soul, creativity or love. The essence of yourself that is put into your work.
