I give myself permission to write for the joy of writing. To write without the idea of publishing in mind. To revise and edit or not as I please. To learn what I wish and ignore the rest.
I give myself permission to be set my own goals. And to be happy when I meet them.
I will write my own story in my own way. That may not get me published, on a best seller list, respected in literary circles. It will, though, bring me joy.
Joy is enough for me.
