Failure is just around the bend
Wanting us to burn.
It thrives on hopeless dreams
Time wasting as goals pass us by.
It digs a hole for us everyday
Hides it right beneath our eyes.
Sometimes it’s best to give up,
Give in before it hits.
You’ll think you dodged a bullet
But regret hits you real quick.
Hard to say anything
About the end game.
All I know is
Today I walked past Failure’s trap
And shook hands with a better friend.

*I have been struggling, I will admit, but today I feel ahead of the game, on the right path for once. I got a decent word count considering the late start I got to writing (I may have been up at 5 am, but dogs and hubby desired attention for a while). I put a dent in then shoveled. I had to eat at points like everyone does, but I feel good about what I got done today.
*The only issue? I have to decided if the couple of chapters I’ve written do what they need to or not. If they do, I just have to edit/revise until the next chunk of writing has to happen (which is 6-7 chapters later). If they don’t, I keep writing or look over what I’ve done so far and reassess. The choices.
*While feedback is nice, sometimes it is tough to act on or time consuming. I personally have a nagging worry that what I’m doing isn’t necessarily what my few readers were looking for. Time will tell though and I’m going to bask in my happiness for now!
