Every time I embark on a new project, I go through two key emotions: fear and happiness.
With fear, I become the ultimate risk manager and pessimist because I spell out and define and even live through all that is wrong about what I want to write about. On the other hand, the happiness is often well defined that I still have it, I can still write and that’s it.
I came back from a five day vacation at the Coast of Kenya and while walking along the shores of the Indian Ocean, my feet in the white sand as I sip coconut water.
I had to accept three things about writing and how I write and they are:
- I am not like every other Writer and that is okay.
- Writing is personal and there is nothing wrong about this.
- Each project is different from the previous one. Just like the books I have written, each though written by the same author, explore different themes, different worlds and that is beautiful.
Now all I have to do next is actually follow through with this new project, set my schedule, write as much as I can and refine it with time.
