The Book: Day Three

Pages Written Today: 2 and counting.

Well, it's almost midnight and I'm still writing. Things are flowing today. It's funny how some days are like that and others aren't. Such is the case with most things, I imagine.

Today I'm writing about a particularly difficult point in my journey. It was a deeply emotional time. And yet, I'm able to revisit it without feeling broken. I don't think I could have written this book before now. I needed to find my strength. I also needed to be able to write with a bit of distance from the whole experience and I have only found that in the past six months. Time has a way of working things out. Or maybe not time, but life. I remember reading once that life has a way of working itself out in the course of life itself. Sometimes, just living your life is the best remedy for moving forward.
