Do you feel the pressure? Is it bubbling inside you ready to burst? Is it tangible and real? Do you feel it in the deepest part of you?
I feel it. I feel the pressure everyday. If you don’t feel the pressure, you better start soon.
What pressure, you may ask? I’m talking about that deep down feeling that tells you you have to make it, or else. That feeling that springs up sometimes to remind you that you only have one life to live, so you better make it count. That feeling that gives you anxiety and makes you realize time is of the essence.
I have this little voice inside my head and heart that always keeps me going. It tells me I have to follow my dreams now before my dreams are impossible to reach. It reminds me on the day-to-day that I have much to do before I can sit back and relax. It makes me aware of the invisible clock of our lives that ticks away, and with each tick, takes another second from us that could’ve been used to make our dreams reality.
Embrace the pressure. Breathe it in and let it enfold you in its tough-love hug. Want the pressure and then use it to push yourself right where you imagine yourself to be.

I feel it, & this year, unlike a year ago, I’m going to put in the effort to finish my vampire novel! 🙂
Same here! I’m determined to finish my novel as well. I’ve been stalling for far too long.
Late last year, I’ve finished chapter 4 of the novel after a four year block. Even debating on posting the alpha on here and fictionpress to gauge how readers react to it.
My novels been in the works for about 5 years now lol That’s a cool idea. You could get a feel for what readers are looking for in your story.
About the time I started the rewrite for mine. Hard thing isn’t it, having a story in your head for that long? Well, I’ve asked for feedback on something I may put in the book, but no one commented on the post. If I do post the novel, would you like to beta read it?
Sure, I’d be happy to 🙂
