Musings and mind leaks... Typewriter

Mind Leak 1

Posted on


A few years ago I was asked by a friend to give some advice to a young person about 'patience.' (I still have no idea why I was asked as it's not really my strong point!). This is what I wrote to them: 
"Sometimes you have to wait for something you want, which calls for patience because not everything can be ready just because you want it to be.  If you find this difficult, try doing something you love while you wait then, when it’s ready, the thing you are waiting for will find you happy instead of grumpy, which is always better."
Today, as I wait with twitchy fingers while my debut novel is typeset, cover prepared, marketing planned, I remembered this and thought to myself: "Take your own flippin' advice, girl!" So, I think I'll go and read a book while eating cake.
