I’ve wondered about this for a long time.
What is this darkness that I have?
Everyone has their dark side. So says Tim S. Grover in his book Relentless.
I’ve listened to the audio of that book quite a few times and I never figured out what mine was until the other day.
I won’t say what it is but it’s not alcohol.
I don’t need alcohol every day. There are weeks when I don’t notice that I haven’t had a drink.
But there is one thing I’ve done since I was a kid that always made me feel better when I didn’t want to keep going.
That one thing has made my life better even if it distracts me at times.
It’s been my go to for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure what I’d do without it.
When I’m stuck on a story I use it to break things up and when life hits me hard I use it.
I always thought that dark thing had to be a bad thing like abusing alcohol or worse.
But it’s not, at least not for me.
Now that I’ve figured it out I’m going to do some testing on it.
I’ve also started a new story and still have queries out. I’ll be sending more of them out this week as well.
Have a good week.
