The Moment You Know You Will Finish

Yesterday was it for me. I was driving and turned to my son and said, “I’m really gonna finish this thing.” Then I repeated for myself. “I’m going to finish.” Not so much a validation but an observation.

Now I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that there are those of you out there that know already what I’m talking about. Cuz I’m sure you remember that moment – the epiphany that you will soon, perhaps in the next month or so, be able to type with confidence those two words. The End.

And I know that some of you might think I’m getting ahead of myself, that it’s not over ’til it’s over, yadda-yadda-yadda. But yesterday it seemed different – like it is now out of my hands and the closeness of it feels inevitable like chimes at midnight.

So today I wrote like the wind. And tomorrow I will as well. And so on and so on. Because it’s so close I can taste it. And I’m hungry.

(If you have had a similar experience, I’d love to hear about it!)

  1. Never did I have a doubt that you would succeed… I see it in yours eyes everytime you talk about your project — your eyes light up; your chest rises with confidence; and you’re determination reveals itself everytime you finish 5 pages MINIMUM everyday you write; and you’re not a quitter. I CANNOT WAIT to see it done — not only for myself because I can’t wait to read it, but more for me to see the expression on your face of personal accomplishment and success.
