Blog entry– February 19, 2011
I am reading a book at deathbed visions. (everything and everyone is connected) I do believe in life after death but I wonder if that allows me to put off finishing the novel. In some ways, I have all the time in the world. If I believed that death was the end, I might see it like a deadline that I’d better hustle to meet.
On the other hand, if death was the final end, I might also decide that writing a novel was a complete waste of time. As I said, I do believe in life after death and that the novels are part of the tasks I have been assigned in this lifetime. That does keep me motivated but not enough. That kind of nihilism can create a vacuum that becomes writer’s block. Why bother?
How do you see it?
