Have been thinking about my life and where I want to go with it this morning while I went to the allotment. Walking processes a lot and nature has always been kind of clearing my mind.
Writing is important and I love it but I think my Zara project has to come to an end. Why?
20 years and I haven’t gone anywhere with it. Yes I know you should never give up on your dreams but to be honest:
I love writing poetry!
I love blogging!
I like writing a novel!
There you go the short forms are what I enjoyed mainly and I think I am good with them. Well, of course I have to improve in many areas but that is the challenge and the fun of it. The day I give up improving will be a sad day and I will be old.
And you know what?
As soon as I decided on giving Zara up I felt so much better. Maybe I was meant to write a “Lord of the Rings“~style fantasy novel with mainly female characters but it was always somehow guilt-ridden. I always had to push myself to do it while all the other projects come much more naturally. Well, then let her go and enjoy the rest :-).
