TODAY I could not write but wanted to…#MyBookDiaries2014

I usually write during the early hours of the morning. I find it really refreshing to write at this time because there are no distractions. So today I woke up, turned on my study lamp, then my laptop and then… I stopped. I froze. I could not write. I wanted to but couldn’t. Don’t get this wrong. I was not feeling asleep or sick or anything. I was perfectly fine and ready but couldn’t get to do it. I did not feel the edge to write. It was as if my mind was wrestling with my heart. My heart wished I could just do it, but my mind refused, and so my hands did not do it. Be mindful of the fact that I have all the inspiration I need. And writing is my hobby. You would think it should come easy. But this morning I woke up early, and just when I had to do it I got stuck. What caused that? Hm…Maybe it is because it is still the early days and I am still getting used to the routine.

For me, it is really important that I produce quality content. So I could write this morning, but I did not have it in me to produce content of my preferred high quality standard. I guess I had one of those moments. Anyone who understands what I mean? It is not quitting. No! I will not quit this writing project. It is very close to my heart for me to quit it. This experience…I am enjoying it. It’s a breath of fresh air for me.

However, having said all of that, I still have the inspiration and I know and trust that I am capable of writing and finishing a book that will resonate with you…And it is coming!

Today I realized I have wasted time being busy #MyBookDiaries2014

My weekend was a hectic one. I got so busy I couldn’t dedicate at least an hour to my writing. The whole weekend seemed like a day for me. On Saturday I woke up and my schedule of busyness started. It went on like that till I went to bed so exhausted that I couldn’t even think about touching my laptop. The next day, Sunday, I got busy too. Now I’m sitting here thinking and reviewing my busyness and I notice it was a complete waste of time. Some of the things I was busy with were less important, I could have cut those ones out. That is why it is so important to prioritise. I have come to this conclusion: Right now, writing my book is a priority for me. I should focus on that, and make time for it every day so that I don’t lose my inspiration. The word, consistency should ring in my mind at all times. This is how I can keep going, and this book can be finished sooner that I thought. With my busyness and procrastination I got real hit by an email I received from a close friend. This is what she said:

Good morning friend,

I got a bit jealous but proud of you at the same time this morning when I browsed through your blog. You have really progressed to a higher level of ownership with regards to what is important to you and how you need to go about making it happen.

That made me realise how “busy” I have become doing things that does not elevate my soul. I certainly have neglected my writing. So your blog has inspired me to wake up and prioritize writing, irrespective of how busy I get with my other activities.

Writing is a gift, so there is no excuse not to exercise that God given talent.

I wish you all the best in your book and I pray that you receive all the courage and determine to persevere through the writing process to finish this book project soon.

Be blessed and lets keep writing!

Now back to me, having announced that I have started writing my first book I have attracted attention to this project. People are looking forward to my end results. So if I keep procrastinating, I will be failing not only myself, but other people who are looking forward to read this book. This means it is time I get busy writing this book instead.

TODAY I started writing my first book… #MyBookDiaries2014

I have marked today’s date important as it signifies the day I sat down, and stopped thinking about it, and actually started writing Chapter 1 of my first book. I got inspiration and gained confidence from you my blog readers and followers. The encouraging comments you left on this blog were powerful enough to raise me up to take this initiative. I’ve been postponing writing this book, and I realized that all of that procrastination was indeed a waste of time. I’d like you to know that you are my inspiration. I’d like you to know that when you follow, like, and comment on this blog, you are sending a strong message to me. And that was enough to get me STARTED. And I will FINISH it and bring it to you in not so distant future. In the meantime, I will keep updating you about my progress.

Cheers for now!
