REFRIGERATOR NOTES TO SELF
What used to be family communications taped to the refrigerator door now tend to be messages to myself. Something encouraging for my current project. But I wonder, are they helpful, truthful, worthwhile?
Here's one I like:
Don’t look back. You aren’t going that way. However, so much of life is serendipitous that I hate to limit the future with only what I know. Let the story flow. This is the philosophy for my heroine in my new novel. She needs to move forward but doesn't know in which direction. Yet.
I like this one even better:
Make sure every step is taking you in the direction you want to go. Even if it's a side step for now.
This gives me room to roam in my heroine's shoes. Gives her opportunity to discover. To sidestep. To find herself. Maybe to fall into love again.
What’s on your refrigerator door message board? Has it changed over the years? What do you tell yourself about letting go, looking back and heading forward? Do you have a better message for me and my heroine?
