When a project first goes out into the world,
it’s easy for me to focus on other work.
I’m still satisfied with the outgoing project’s polish,
and proud of the accomplishment.
I don’t need to think about that project anymore.
Up to a point, that is.
My project has not yet yielded the desired results
which means The Doubts have descended upon me.
Pitched a tent in my head
and settled in to whisper crazy, non-helpful stuff.
For the sake of my sanity, I needed to shift that energy.
Today I made a slight change in that project’s format.
It only took about an hour and just like that,
I feel so much better.
Less like a campground for negative, whispered voices.
Once again I’m proud to have created that book.
Which means it’s time for me to get back to my other work.
