I returned to “Crazy Cochita” and actually finished! I have to say I love the new, revised ending. I always felt the story was incomplete and lacked detail, even when I first wrote it back in October 2005.
Now I can move onto the next story which is called “The Origin of Break-up.” I worked on the first paragraph of the story yesterday while at work, because when I’m home I am just so tired! Picture this. A 5’2”, 125 pound little lady jumping from train to train, visiting one school and another and another, calling teens to remind them to attend events that are beneficial to them (not me), rescheduling meetings for parents who can’t seem to pick up the phone to cancel their own meetings…this is my day in a nutshell.
No wonder I am so exhausted when I get home!
Nonetheless, I am still writing. Whether I’m sneaking it into a day at work (like I am doing right at this moment) or tapping away on my iPhone, I am getting it done. How have I found this motivation? The new year is approaching and I refuse to look back and say, “Why didn’t I….?” I am also 100% certain that this is my path. No doubts. No worries. I have always been confident about my talent and success as a writer. Entonces para Barnes and Nobles voy! At least my book will. Because not even ungrateful teens, scattered parents, or exhaustion will stop me from living a fulfilled life.
With love and a heart full of goals,
