So. I believe I have mentioned on here that I am writing a script. I literally woke up one morning and decided that I was going to do it. I had been having these stories floating around in my head and even though I had doubts on myself, I decided to do it anyway.
It has been a rollercoaster so far. Some days, I am flowing with so much to say and some days, I am just off. There are periods of great creativity and there are some off days. Basically, I get to a point sometimes, where I can’t figure out what the next scene is going to be. I have an outline of how it will go but I’m not sure what exactly will go on the next scene. A couple of weeks ago, I would have been beating myself up about this. Now, I just attribute it to the writing process because once it clicks, it clicks.
There are days when I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing and that can be frustrating. I doubt myself a lot of times but I am resting on God and I believe that I can do it. I also have had a lot of amazing people support me on this journey.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this quote by the late great Nelson Mandela to encourage us to always keep pushing even in times of despair. Shit might not be easy but that moment shapes us into being better versions of ourselves.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
