Earlier, I was close to tearing my hair out because there's this one chapter that I'm JUST. NOT. SATISFIED. WITH. Everything's okay except for that chapter and I was honestly near tears because of it. I won't be able to get my book out until I get that chapter right, and it's made me think all sorts of things. Maybe this book his shit. Maybe I'm just a fraud, a hack.
Needless to say, I wasn't in the mood to rewrite the chapter for the 195586th time. So I just decided to browse the Internet, hoping I'd come across something inspiring and unfortunately what greeted me instead was the news of Sir Terry Pratchett's death.
And the first quote I saw of his was this---
If you don't turn your life into a story, you become a part of someone else's story.
Now, it's all clear. And Sir TP from heaven gave me another bit of advice when I read this other quote from him.
Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.
And as for one of the world's greatest writers - rest in peace, sir. You will live forever through your books, and you'll be changing lives for all eternity because of them, too.
