This is relatively harmless. NOT.
If you are me, a flight transfer typically means very little time to reach your connecting flight. Even if the flight is supposed to give me a full hour between, it never seems to work that way.
On one such unfortunate day, my flight landed inDetroit. By the time I had exited the plane and looked up at the clock, I had ten minutes flat to make my boarding time for the next flight.
Well, at least they put the flights close together, right? Assume nothing. My connecting flight was at the opposite end of the airport.
Ten minutes isn’t much time when you have to cover more distance than several football fields, especially when you take into account the extra padding around the middle.
I arrived at gate B4, before my flight. And no, I didn’t make that up.
Signs of life? No.
The truth is that we all have some parts of our journey that we try to sprint from one part of the destination to another only to find out that when we arrive there are no signs of life. Prepare for your writing journey by pacing yourself.
Five Tips to Pacing Yourself on the Writing Journey:
*Realize that the journey is going to take time.
*Allow yourself to enjoy each step of the journey and make mistakes along the way.
*Plan your budget for a long term journey, not a one year sprint.
*Don’t despise the leg of the journey you are on now.
*Be patient with yourself as you learn.
