I help writers move forward on the projects they’ve always wanted to write. Whether you have a great idea and just need a push to get started, or you’re nearing the finish line but need one last edit, I’m here for you.
At the end of your life, are you going to wish you had worked more hours or earned more money? Are you going to say, “Boy, I’m glad I never said no to anyone who asked me for something”?
Or are you going to wish with all your heart that you had done the thing you dreamed of doing? Just gotten it done, instead of thinking about it and never doing anything?
During my first semester in college, I made a conscious choice that I would try a whole bunch of things until I found My Thing.
I went ALL IN for this process of finding My Thing: I auditioned for Alive, the Christian a cappella group. I tried out for Flypeople, the student dance group, and the Vassar Repertory Dance Theater, the official dance company on campus.
I didn’t make any of them.
The past three weeks have kicked my butt. I broke my own boundary of not hosting guests two weekends in a row. I’ve been working on a big work project that had an insanely tight deadline. I work from home, and normally I travel into the office (about 2+ hours each way on the train) three or four times a year. In the past three weeks, I’ve done that four-hour round trip four times. I’m exhausted. So this week I’ve been feeling physically tired, emotionally drained, and mentally fed up with myself. Don’t I ever learn?
