So, as you’d probably know, last week brought some much needed joy and jolly into our lives.
However, that lasted for barely a moment, before another mountain, much taller and wider than the last, stood stark in my sight.
You see, just writing a book, especially a rough, vague preliminary draft is quite similar to taking a stroll.
Of course, this stroll is long and strenuous, like the one in “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” by Leo Tolstoy, and completing it without losing your mind is a feat definitely worth celebrating.
Have you read that story, by the way? You really should. It is amazing.
Now, this ain’t my first rodeo. I have been doing this for years already. I know how it works. I know that, in contrast, the path ahead is not as simple. It may be short, but it is far more uphill.
So, while it still is a time for joy, we know how much more work needs to be done.
It is time to strap on the snowshoes, baby, and just keep walking.
