It’s amazing the things you find when you’re looking for something else.
In an attempt to locate a scene I’d written for a story I’ve been on-off working on for a couple of years (more off than on – hence the lengthiness of the project) I came across a number of things that I’d completely forgotten about:
- Maps I drew for two separate stories
- Notes I made while world building.
- A really nice notebook, barely half full.
- And a list of ‘Affirmations’ I made at some point in my past.
I can make good choices
I have amazing potential
I can do difficult things
I am of great worth
I choose to work with a focused mind
I set goals and I work persistently until they are accomplished
Turns out, I still have no idea what I did with that scene though. Maybe I’ll find it the next time I go hunting through my things to find something else.
Have you ever written/drawn/made something that you were proud of but subsequently misplaced? Sucks, doesn’t it?
