Book Learning #9

I completed chapters two through seven as planned. On the very last day of the deadline I had set for myself, I wrote the last section of chapter seven. Now it was time for the last chapter – chapter one.

I took a couple of days to outline chapter one. Once completing this outline, I sat back to study it. As my book asks the reader to take a journey to awareness – to open mind and heart – I worked hard to make chapter one as tangible as possible.

So, sitting there studying that chapter one outline, I found it puzzling why I could find no satisfaction with it. There was nothing there moving me to begin content. Had grief of being so close to the end frozen me?

You see, I had fallen in love with the writing process. I consciously knew I was nearing the end. And as I reminded myself I was nearing the end of this project, I began to comfort myself by asking, “What about the next one?”

Chapter one was also completed within the time goal set for it. What I have learned here near the end is 1) there is no end – not if that is what I desire, and 2) always trust the process.

Trashing the frustrating outline, I created another one that followed my trusted process producing chapters two through seven.
