Fifteen minutes in I realized that it was just not what I was feeling. I felt it at the moment I found the penny, but not feeling it now. In my head that day, it was so good! I had a whole poem written in my head, now lost forever!
How and why does this happen?
How could I have been so committed to this project 10 days ago and now barely want to read what I wrote.
I both love and hate this feeling.
I love that I have had a passion for a penny! haha! I can pivot and now write self-aware about my feelings at the time I wanted to write about the penny. The constant is a drive to write and share my feelings to put them out.
I have developed a habit, a habit of writing, like checking email or taking the same way to work. It makes me feel good, like working out, making my bed, or finishing a book. No matter how long or how short, going from draft to publish is a big deal for me. Lots in draft, and probably will always stay there, but as long as I write, I don't care if they stay their forever.
