Head On

In order not to get discouraged nor lose my present self confidence that I can actually do it... I'm going to write it on this blog, so you can all witness it. But, honestly, I also need to write it for myself, so I know I would be quite ashamed if I don't keep my promise... not only to those who all believe in me, especially one delicious espresso bean I would never want to disappoint, but most certainly to myself.
I got one and a half week of work left, then I will be flying to Turkey where I will spend time reading, discovering, seeing people I love and writing. With one goal for the time I come back to Brussels: finishing my collection of short stories in order to send it to publishers this fall (I'm still quite cautious not to give you any precise date).
Well, that's it, it's written now and, hopefully, read. I've got no more excuses. It is time now to face up with my writing, whether good or bad, I got to go on.

As a lucky person who can observe your day-to-day determination and the passion you approach to your dreams, I can say, without the shadow of a doubt that you will elevate yourself to the highest point of those brilliant dreams, that are in fact so suiting you. I even more luckily, I will be with you, to share the joy and the thrill.
Scribble away brightest eyes...

I've been working on my second book for a long while now and I've only now made some substantial progress, again feeling good with it. It's terribly hard to integrate it with all other daily obligations, but, in the end, I am mainly writing for myself so that doesn't really matter.

In any case, I feel your pain. Good luck! ;-)
