Writing Can Be Murder

It’s all downhill from here

Today on my walk, when I reached the top of the last hill, I muttered aloud, “it’s all downhill from here”. This was definitely a good thing because it was cold (37 but “felt like” 32 according to the weather station) overcast, slightly damp, windy, and generally gloomy. I was glad to be heading downhill, toward home.

This got me to thinking about writing books, or plays, or articles. At some point you reach the top of your last hill. All your hard work has led to the moment where all you’ve done pays off, and you can enjoy the downhill momentum, and coast through the homestretch.

 As we reach the end of the year, take a moment to enjoy the “downhill” as we hurtle toward the end of the year. There will be plenty of time to climb the hills and scale the mountains in 2008.



  1. I love that. I think that’s why I’ve been moving at a snail’s pace lately. No rush or hurry this year is whizzing by me anyway.
