I had a tough decision to make recently. The decision is made ... and yet, I still hesitate. Why do I hesitate? Is it the money? Is it the niggling feeling that I might be wrong?
I first made the decision not to go ahead because of my New Year's Resolutions. It was so easy to look to those for guidance. Lori Armstrong over at First Offenders very recently talked about those people who live by a quote.
Life is easier to navigate with a compass.
I held my conundrum up to this year's compass, and it didn't fit. I want to Live Real. I suspect my hesitation lies with the character herself.
But I am not my character. I don't want to be her, and as a matter of fact, I have to crawl in someone else's skin. Do you ever catch yourself making a decision as your character, instead of yourself?
My quote was "must be better," but only because I'm always chanting it to myself. *giggle* Believe me, I have reason. :-)
Maybe that's what bothers me ... the "must be better" compass is pointing towards revisions, but the "Live Real" compass is pointing towards not making it Christian Erotica. And so the compass is going wacko.
Do you have a compass? A quote you live by? A North Star? Do you consult it? I'm just curious.
