Join us as Lynley Wayne goes Outside the Margins.
Change. It’s one of those things in life that’s inevitable. As much as we would like it to, nothing really stays the same.
Not all change is bad though.
I think it’s more the fear of the unknown that holds us back. The question of what will happen? If I do this, then there’s an endless amount of possible outcomes, some of which are too horrible to even think about. There are also some that can surpass our wildest dreams.
So do you let the fear of change hold you back, or do you straighten your spine and face it head on?
I don’t like change anymore than the next person. I have my little routines. They’re comfortable and relaxing. I don’t have to think about things or make any decisions. I would of course talk about doing something different. Changing it up on occasion. And I would, but then I’d end up going right back to my same old routine.
Recently I’ve been forced to change.
If you follow me on social media then you know in January I got an evil day job, or EDJ. It has forced to me out of my comfort zone, which has made writing harder. My days off change, as do the hours I work, so it’s impossible for me to get into any sort of routine at all. One day I might have to be there at one in the afternoon and the next day I have to be there at eight o’clock in the morning.
Due to that, it has made me more protective of what little writing time I do have and motivated me even more to finish the epic fantasy book I’m currently working on for my other pen name. It’s my hope that I can make enough from selling it to go back to writing full time.
The decision to go back to work wasn’t an easy one, but it was necessary. It’s a change that both my husband and myself are having to adjust to.
I have no idea what the future holds—for me personally or professionally. I can’t even tell you want tomorrow may bring. What I can tell you is that regardless of the changes in my life I will always stand tall and face them head on.
Change can be scary. It can also end up being the best thing that ever happened to you.
