Every time I lose focus there is this card on my desk that reminds me of what’s important: little steps and staying on track.
I remember exactly when I bought it and the way it made me feel: free and hopeful. Free of worries that I’m not a good enough writer, that my books aren’t read enough and that I can never achieve greatness. Worries that I am a looser. Maybe I am a looser but one day I will be a winner, because I keep trying….
Can’t wait for tonight when my house will fill up with people that speak my language: writing. Once a month several local authors and I get together to discuss updates on manuscripts, new releases, writer’s events, and exchange ideas and support in all things writing. Add to that good food and drinks and you have a recipe for total success.
If you are a writer and need help, I encourage you to find yourself a local group. We writers are shy by nature and introverts, but hanging out with same creative minds does wonder; you won’t feel so lonely but rather pumped up to tackle whatever roadblocks are thrown your way. Take it from someone who experienced it all.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I gotta get ready. I have a date with … Muses!
I’m beyond ecstatic. I’m officially on vacation. I’m almost packed, got my flip flops, my sunscreen and my hat, and two luggages filled with bathing suits, summer dresses, t-shirts and short pants. While you all stay behind, stuck in traffic in your way to work every day I’ll be on the beach in Bora Bora, a margarita in one hand, a hottie fanning me with a palm leaf and whispering in the sexiest voice ever, “Wake up. This is only a dream.”
I’ll wake up. (party pooper)
The truth is yes, I’m on vacation, but instead of a beach in Bora Bora I’ll be locked up in my office with heroes from multiple stories I’ve started a while ago and which need an ending. And while I do that (if by any chance you see my muse wandering around in Bora Bora … send her my way–she has to help me out) you, dear readers, fill out the form below for a chance to win a copy of Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley, the sequel to Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind, the all-time best romance ever.
The giveaway is part of the 2nd Annual Summer Giveaway Hop once again organized by Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer, this time helped by Mary @ BookHounds & Forever Young (adult). The hop runs 08/01 – 08/07 with the winner announcement on 08/08.
Have fun everyone!
