I’m always hearing about beginnings and ends. We grab the idea and begin our project, rushing toward the end of the project with abandon. Sometimes we miss the entire middle of the journey in the rush to get it done.
Beginnings are times for making resolutions, for creating plans, for bursts of energy. Endings are times for winding down and may involve feelings of completion or loss. But with the proper outlook, considering ourselves as in the middle of things can help us not only to understand life a little better but also to live it a little more meaningfully. – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
The middle is the journey we take in our creative endeavors. Beginnings and endings happen regularly in this middle state, we just happen to me moving toward the end game while accomplishing things along the way.
The act of writing is much like life’s journey. We learn, improve, and create drama on a universal level. The more we travel along, the richer our lives become. Risk and adversity are equal parts in this journey. With out those lows, we’d never appreciate the highs.
I get caught up in the need to finish projects and forget the middle of the process is what brings me to the end.
There is an entire alphabet to experience between the alpha and the omega. If we miss it, it’s our loss.
