Good morning, readers! It’s Monday. I hear the grumbles from the crowd all ready at that.
While the world despises Monday’s I rejoice in them. Or at least I do this Monday. It is the beginning of a brand new week. A brand new chance to spend days chasing those dreams. We can reach for those goals, and dreams easier by putting last week where it belongs. All the rough days, and head scratching as we stare at blank screens, just leave it behind.
Drink a cup of coffee, listen to upbeat music that puts you in a great mood. Or even listen to inspiring music.
Once you have that cup down, get a fresh cup. Before you ask, yes, I live off coffee like a diet while I’m writing. Tons of the stuff every day. It might be recommended not to drink it during my diet, but oh well. You cannot take the coffee out of the writer. That is not a good thing.
Anyway, I digress.
Put yourself in a positive train of thought. Set up big term goals, or small term goals for the week, and conquer.
Just remember as submission calls pop up, novel ideas dive in, and you want to accomplish it all….
Any word count a day, even a few hundred….it’s progress forward, and to be proud of it. You hear the saying all of the time. Don’t compare yourself to other writers. I think it’s safe to say don’t even compare yourself to the way you wrote one book. Some books just come easier than others.
So buckle yourself down, put on that writing hat, and bleed into your work in progress. (figuratively, let’s not be disgusting or suicidal. I’ve lost way too many author friends recently).
As for me. It’s a fresh cup of coffee, and into the WIP for me. My main character is preparing to face many trials for the day.
Dream on, and dream big, my friends.
