I am trying not to get overwhelmed by this now very close deadline and to keep my writing going. So, I am pulling out every trick I have ever used to remind myself to just focus on what I am currently supposed to be doing and that is writing. After all, editing is easier than writing and only comes AFTER it is written.
And, I have found something that has been helping me do this. Some of you may know that in addition to posting quotes on my Facebook page, and sharing them on here, I also have a small collection of stones with quotes, or even single words, to inspire and motivate me. I have even given some of these stones to those people who mean the most to mean.
As I have struggled with keeping my momentum going while working on this book, I have found them very helpful because as I have written here before, I need to see things right in front of me to really get them, and literally seeing it set in stone helps. If nothing else, I have some shiny objects that I can stare at to distract me and that in itself helps to keep the stress level down.
