This post is part of a series on the blog where I share some of the nuggets of wisdom and inspiration — related to writing and/or life — that I find steeped in the pages of novels that I’ve read.
Last week I was promoted at my software geek job. I’m happy to be acknowledged for all of my hard work but now comes the part when one of my 2013 words — Balance — will be put to the test because the promotion means more exposure and responsibility.
I’m also excited about signing up for an upcoming writing class with author Nova Ren Suma that starts in April.
So when I was browsing my bookshelf I thought it was only kismet that I found this quote. I think this will be the kind of year I’ll be having.
From Evelyn , the narrator of the novel The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty:
“It’s like swimming, underwater, this whole year. I just close my eyes, hold my breath, and keep kicking.”
