I finished my job at the library yesterday. It was completely hectic right up to the minute I left so I didn’t have any time to contemplate my leaving.
Today once I’ve dropped M at school I will come home. It will be very quiet. I will have nowhere I have to be until 2.30pm.
I am knackered. I’m a bit scared. I’m not going to expect too much of myself today….and I’m going to try not to freak out.
I have never walked away from a job without something to go on to before. This decision is an investment in myself and my writing. I really hope it pays off! (I don’t mean financially, although that would be nice, too.)
It took me much longer than I intended to get my first book finished, nearly ten years! I’m determined the next book/s won’t take so long. I’m aiming to have two books done by the end of 2013. Wish me luck!
Here’s some quotations I like about courage/fear:
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”
-James Neil Hollingworth
“Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
-Orson Swett Marden
“The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.”
