Sage Advice

Awesome advice. Only problem is, then the phone rings...or you know, you open up Face Book...otherwise known as Time Suck.

Finding your own voice is very difficult for a writer. Learning to say what you mean, to put words together so they make sense is challenging. Then, when you think you've done it...along comes someone with an opinion.

And they may say that what you said was dumb, or ill-expressed, or wrong.

It can be discouraging, that certainty some people have that you aren't doing things right.

Just remember, its your voice, your story, your call.

I have to remember this.

  2. Closing a door?? WTH is that? I've never had it.:P


Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
