Posts Tagged ‘catch-up’

It’s 10:00 in the morning. I’m flipping through the chapters I have already written, trying not to grimace at their epic badness as I make the plot line shifts necessary for forward movement. Honestly, the condition of this novel is grave. Thankfully, I have eight years of training in salvaging lost causes, so I press on.

I’ve got the playlist entitled ‘Thinking Music’ on in the background. It is a desperate attempt to reach the contemplative, artistic state that used to be so easily attained. Man. The relapse of Babesiousis that crept up on me in December really forced me out of good habits. Time to get back into my craft.

So with a rugged determination, I’m back to the novel. I will ignore the urge to edit, refuse to despair at the faultiness of my words, and finish this difficult catch-up so that I may free-write once more. Yes. Back to work I go.

For small or big tasks, for high or low moments, Philippians 3:12 (NIV, 1984) keeps summing me up:

“Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”
