Three things I learned about writing this week

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:

  1. I am not like every other Writer and that is okay.
  2. Writing is personal and there is nothing wrong about this.
  3. 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.
