I was driving down a long gravel road on my way home the other day. The vibrant autumn colors of the trees framed the road and created this beautiful path. I was rejuvenated! Fall breathes new life and energy in me. The cooler temperatures and vibrant colors seem to foster a creativity in me that isn't typically quite as predominant other times.
This has been a particularly busy Fall, both personally and work wise, and my writing has often taken a back seat to everything else. Life and recent obligations seem to be settling down now with much of the chaos over, so when I was driving and saw this beautiful path ahead, it was like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. And new energy, new ideas and renewed motivation bubbled to the surface. I'm excited to follow my path and see where it leads with my current WIPs as well as the new ideas gaining life.
How about you...are you balancing all and following your path or finding it difficult to make the time to write in the face of the day-to-day stresses and life happenings? I would love to hear how things are going for you.
