Author Journal: When Plans Change

memo padIt happens whenever I, who fondly imagines myself an organized person, become smug. It’s enough to send me back to bed with the pillows over my head, wailing, “When did I sign up for this anyway?” What am I talking about? Change. Oh that.

I have ideas about the direction my writing career should go, but then an idea I must write blindsides me from nowhere and turns me onto a different road than the one I thought I’d travel.

I like to pretend I’m in control of my life, but in reality that’s only partly true. I’m in control of the choices I make, nothing more. That’s pretty scary but also wonderful. You see, I love adventure.

Life is a fleeting thing, a crazy slide into home. As a person who likes to plan, I find it humbling that I can’t know everything, be everything and do everything. But then, if I could, I’d be God, and I’m pretty sure He’s got it all covered.

Note to Self: Plan but be ready for change.
