Leap of faith.
Writing is a leap of faith. From the very act of placing pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard a writer takes a leap of faith. Assuming before you start that you will have that magical beginning, middle and end. You jump into that beyond. Leaping I find, means so many different things to different people.
To a writer, leaping often means becoming published, or completing a story. To others, it might mean cleaning out that closet or looking for a new job.
Leaping into that unknown, into the fire is scary. The road twists and turns and the bugbears are huge but if you allow it. If you go into the world with your eyes wide open you can find that the path is not as scary as you thought. Often we allow the world to scare us away from what we want to do.
Have you taken a leap of faith lately? If so, with what? Did you learn a new language, get a new job, take a new jogging path? How did it work out for you?
