I'm reading this book to boost my daily word count. I've halted on writing my second draft. While going through this, my writing has been productive.
I decide to review the first 20 pages. There are three topics that stick out on these pages.
Topic One: Resistance Is Infallible
"Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul evolution the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it."
Why I can't finish my book One Death at a Time? I would ask myself. What makes it so important to me?
1. I survived the violence around me.
2. I knew heroes who survived it and hated the violence. The news rarely gave them press. I should write about them.
3. My book would ease my thoughts.
It's has been difficult and a long journey. I want to complete the novel and the other two books.
Topic Two: Resistance Is Fueled By Fear
"We feed it with power by our fear of it."
I realize my fear of remembering the past cause me to stop at writing the book. In the 80's and present time, life is so easily maimed or murdered in the city of Detroit.
In order to defeat the fear Pressfield says "Master that fear and we conquer Resistance."
Topic Three: Resistance Recruit Allies
"Sabotage by others."
This is so true when it comes to my family members. They're unsupportive and drama queens. I read this topic twice to stop feeling guilt for taking time for myself.
