Last night, during my critique group, I found myself taking notes. Not on the writing, but on the conversation.
"Something just hit me. All of a sudden it was time to stop messing around," G said. "I don't know if it was an age thing, like maybe I realized that one day I really was going to die or something. But I'd had enough. So I decided to go for it."
I got that. I understood how one flicker can burn a little brighter every day until you finally can't see the shadows anymore. When suddenly it's no longer about longing and it's all about action.
It's that moment when everything clicks.
Have you had a life changing moment like that? When you suddenly realized what you were supposed to do? If so, what was it like? How did it change you?
