The other night, about 11:30 p.m., after another long day of learning as I was working on a new major writing project, I came across a photo of a storyboard that was now missing.
Seeing the picture of Post-Its on the storyboard, I hungered after those little squares, needing them for my newest project where I was stalled. Those squares represented a night’s worth of plotting and planning from years ago, and they were needed for this new project that has an upcoming deadline. I really didn’t want to have to reinvent this story again.
Looking at that picture, I began making promises with the Universe that if I could find this storyboard, I would do this and I would do that the following day. This and that being items that had little to do with my writing, and which I’d been procrastinating about.
You have to realize that two weeks earlier, I had spent two entire days tearing this place part—more like re-organizing everything—trying to find this storyboard, or thinking I had taking the Post-Its off the board, the sheet(s) of paper where the Post-Its could now reside.
I even went through all my storyboards.
This particular storyboard was missing from the pile. In fact, I pulled out all the storyboards from behind the always-opened utility room door where I kept them and stacked them in the living room where I could work with them later.
So here I was at midnight, having seen this photograph, wanting it back in my possession, and saying to all the entities that reside here with me but on a different vibrational level, “Give me back my storyboard and I’ll do nothing but taxes and cleaning the house tomorrow. No learning, no playing on my iPad, no reading. I want it back. You’ve had your fun. I want it back.”
Driven by a sudden urge to look behind that utility room door where all the other storyboards had been stashed and were now sitting in my living room, my steps took me to the utility room.
I stood there thinking, no way.
I pulled on the door. Resting up against the wall, where the other storyboards had stood, guess what I found.
