Those words are ones we all associate with building, change, dust and dirt and hard work. But the term “under construction” can mean more than just the erection of a new high rise or the remodel of a favorite venue; it can also be used to describe anything in flux in our lives. When we decide to take a new direction, to learn something new, to expand our outlook, our lives are “under construction,” that may include physical, mental or emotional change.
It could be argued that we are all under construction, because we all grow and change with age and from our experiences. We would rather not dwell on the negative, or things that change us in ways beyond our control, such as illness or injury. We hope the changes we make are positive, brought about by the desire to improve rather than necessity due to disaster. We hope we are growing into better, happier, more fulfilled people.
Right now I personally have a very big project under construction. I plan to be ready in the very near future to release my first novel. This has been a work in progress for a long time, but I’m finally getting down to the finishing touches on this thing I’ve been building. I’ve had several setbacks, but now am actively working on getting the cover together, which I will be showing here and on Twitter as soon as I can. After I finish with the editing and formatting, I plan to release my book on Kindle for those interested.
Please bear with me as I seek to complete this construction project.
