Happy Thursday, dear fellow writers and dreamers!
Perhaps you have noticed that my translation word count hasn’t changed much this past week. Not one word, to be exact. This is because I’m still working on that PhD thesis synopsis, and after a day of very intense cognitive work, I pretty much can’t focus very well on translating anymore – which is also an intense cognitive process.
I’m done lecturing for this semester, though, and my goal is to start translating again – with baby steps. I’m aiming for 20 minutes a day. I believe in writing everyday, as it helps you to stay in the story, remembering every aspect of the plot and the characters, not having to read bigger chunks to “get into the mood” again – you’re already there. I won’t make it every day. But perhaps the goal and the commitment will help me to get there often? Every word counts. Every word is one word closer to the dream.
In this spirit I thought I’d share a few of my positive writer affirmations with you. I hope this will encourage you to keep writing! In case you haven’t noticed – that is actually the two main themes of this blog: To share insights from my process of becoming a published writer – and to encourage and motivate other writers and dreamers.
I hope this is an encouragement to you today.
You can do it! Make the choice, be kind to yourself, choose to feel good about your amazing story that is slowly coming into shape – and you will make it. ❤
If so; lines to be repeated daily 😉
Do you have any particular affirmations that work really well for you? A great affirmation to add to the list? Would love to hear about it in the comments!
Felt inspired after reading this post? I would love it if you would share it! ❤
I hope this day is greeting you with a smile!
