Along with the love of photography, there is the love of writing.  

My first love.  My dream.  My career path. 

It's been good to get outside this week, parking myself at a cafe to write.  

With that, there's been lots of progress - pages of a screenplay written.  With the pages, that falling in love feeling again -- with my story, with my characters.  Though I skipped this morning's writing time, I am planning on tomorrow night's writing time outside -- possibly at the Barnes & Nobles, a mile away from home.  The goal as always is to be consistent.  Doing something for 21 days creates a habit.  That's what I'm hoping for.

Yes and sometimes the writing seems endless -- the end goal, far, but having these writing times makes me see that I can reach that end goal.  That I will finish a draft.  It is possible.

Of course, my life hovers around me -- there are only three weeks of school left -- and several school activities and events that will take up the days.  Book reviews to write, a personal business to build but I will not despair.  Despite the busyness, stress and anxiety, I will keep the faith.
I believe these voyages outside the home to write will help me with that. 
So I look forward to them in the weeks to come.
