“Modest doubt is called the beacon of the wise.”
“Doubt, of whatever kind, can be ended by action alone.”
I’m tired and I should be sleeping but before I go to bed, I want to say the following:
· Thank you for inspiring me.
· Thank you for all the writing you’ve helped me do.
· Thank you for not giving up on me.
· Thank you for constantly giving me new ideas.
· Thank you for being here every time.
Tonight I felt like I couldn’t write. So I wrote something about comic books. It wasn’t my usual content, but it was well written, nonetheless. It was probably good for me to do something different. It took a while to write. I don’t know why, but I just couldn’t write tonight. Then when I finally finished, I had all kinds of doubts and questions.
· This isn’t my usual content.
· Will people hate it?
· Have I finally run out of things to say?
· Will my love for comic books mark me as immature?
· Will I alienate people who don’t read comic books?
· Will the comic book fans who read this like it?
Still, despite its unique niche, I realized you were with me. I also learned some things:
· Good writing is good writing, no matter what the topic is.
· Lessons can be learned and applied from anywhere.
· Being consistent is more important than being perfect.
· It’s good to do something completely different occasionally.
· Any work that gets me closer to my goal is good work.
Now I can rest. I don’t know why I worry. The point is what I write. The point isn’t even to write well. The point is to write often. Every day. Two or three times a day.
I did. Despite all my doubts tonight, I was able to Get Started and Keep Going. And now I’m going to bed.
Thank you, dear Muse.
