A new day, new goals, new ideas. A reset. As a writer, I cannot allow the challenges of yesterday to bleed through the dawn and interfere with today. I must trust that this day will bring to my characters new paths yet to be traveled, paths with challenges to conquer, not just roads to walk.

Over the last few years, writing has changed me. Life has changed me. As it does to all of us. But change is good. I have found new weaknesses, discovered new strengths, and learned that I love writing more than I ever did before.

I do not need to wait for inspiration to find me. I already possess it. I wield it, with strength and passion and belief. Inspiration is with me in every moment and every breath. And with change comes the opportunity to discover. To…reset.
