In some ways this has been implicit in other posts, but a lot of my writing journey is all about timing. About things coming together at a certain point. About moments which are conducive to writing, when others have not been.

It would be unreasonable to think that timing does not have a lot to do with what I create, how I persevere, and when things come to fruition.

I find it helpful to nurture an acceptance of this – and an acknowledgement that my timings will not be the same as it is for others.

There were certain points at early stages when I faced rejection – and now I’m so glad I did!  I needed to find my voice, and I hadn’t got there yet.

The time needed to be right. Timing may not be everything, but it’s certainly important.
