Sven has his own website now! Today’s inspy post is over at Alison’s blog, but then you need to go to Sven’s place and post your progress and the URL for your blog / site if you’ve got one. And then you’ll get listed on the sidebar over there as participating in the challenge.
We’re also batting around ideas for the next challenge…I have a feeling it’ll take place over the holidays somehow, with time built in for holidays. I always get some of my best writing done around that time of year…maybe it’s because everyone is SO busy, they tend to leave you alone. 😆
Here’s something to think on for today – from The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, in which he discusses resistance and how it’s a form of fear – more fear of success than the fear of failure that will stop us from reaching our creative goals:
Resistance is internal
Resistance seems to come from outside ourselves. We locate it in spouses, jobs, bosses, kids. “Peripheral opponents,” as Pat Riley used to say when he coached the Los Angeles Lakers.
Resistance is not a peripheral opponent. Resistance arises from within. It is self-generated and self-perpetuated. Resistance is the enemy within.
…Resistance will tell you anything to keep you from doing your work…It will asume any form if that’s what it takes to deceive you.
…Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.
