Goals- An update

Each day is one step closer to achieving my goals. 

Dedicating my life to literature was an easy task. Making it happen however was more difficult. It was the conflict in my head that occurred whenever I considered bringing forth my writing pieces to light, with the idea that hiding it was more beneficial. I now see that that is not the way I wish to live my life and having exposed my pieces was an incredible choice on my behalf because it gave me the push to grow and enhance myself consistently.

Being a poet, writer and journalist certainly had its hard days.

Some days are easier than others though, that is foreseeable. At times I get dissuaded and tempted to pull back from the public eye, to escape the public sphere and enter it again once I’ve tempered my words to a better degree.

I’m glad I didn’t.

I know that one day all my hard work will be worth it and that I shall be able to change various aspects of society with my words for the better.

The day will come, I know it will because I will make it arrive through my hard work, dedication and persistence.

The one achievement that I am working towards making possible is the finishing of the book I am currently writing. It has taken a lot of research and late nights. However, I am far away from its release date still. This excites me though because in all honesty, I know I will be sad once I have finished the book because it will have grown on me. More than it has already. Having more time to write is always a bonus to me.

I often am still writing till the sun is beginning to rise however, with the sunlight slowly beginning to flicker between the shutters of my blinds before I notice the time. My coffee has turned cold hours before, with the brisk morning air keeping me awake. It repeats every day and night, with me fighting the urge to sleep against the will to write with my words on the page always winning.

This book will be made possible through my sheer love towards literature and putting my heart and soul into everything that is written by my fingertips.

I will finish this book.

It will be enough.

I am writing this post to express that sometimes difficulties are holding you back from voicing your art, but as I have written here, you must because, in the end, it is your legacy.

Make sure your story is heard.

    That’s fantastic, Kyle. I wish I had your drive and determination. Procrastination is one of my major problems when it comes to writing. I have no end of ideas but I have trouble bending them into a workable story at times. That makes me lose my focus and interest. Congratulations on almost finishing your book, and I hope I get to read it!

      Thank you! What I’ve come to do when I lack motivation and/or drive is literally just to force myself just to write a little bit about anything and everything. Once I do that, I usually get into the mood of writing and continue on my actual piece. Sometimes though it’s best just to go outside and do something. It’ll usually give you enough of a mood boost and drive so when you come back, you can continue to write! Good luck, friend!
