Keep at it…

We often times beat ourselves up because things don’t fall into place when we think it should. Nobody wants to work for shit these days. Well news flash, if you don’t work your ass off to get it, you’re better off working for the next person to help them grow their business. It makes you appreciate and take pride in what you’ve accomplished after the blood, sweat and tears. The failures, and the naysayers should be your motivation. Don’t beat yourself up when the pieces fall apart and you find yourself scrapping what you’ve started, all to just start over again. Work hard, be motivated and kick ass..Yea, I know it’s easier said than done. But do more and say less and allow your hard work to speak for itself.

After you write…what now?

what nowAfter you write your award winning novel…what next? You can’t wait for the world to read it. The world will only consist of your family and friends for starters..lol..but hey, support usually comes from family and friends first and then it SUPPOSED to make it to the people who know nothing of you or the novel it took you many days and nights to complete. Nowadays, it’s so hard to get your book(s) published with a well known publisher. You’d think they’d loosen up the guidelines and give a new author a chance to shine bright like a diamond, or maybe a rusty nail in so many cases..lol..it feels like you’ve stepped on a rusty nail after so many painful rejections from so many publishers that you’ve nervously submitted your novel to.

But now what? You’ve been refused by even some of the best publisher in the game. You self publish, that’s what you do. You promote yourself like you’ve been paid to promote yourself. Treat your novel like a novel that you were paid to get the world to notice. Market yourself in any and every way possible. There are so many free opportunities to self promote. The tools are at your finger tips literally. So what next? You do the leg work. Work your ass off to get notice by readers, build your audience. Hell, you may luck up and have a well known publishing company come seek you out. Hey, it has happened!

But in the meantime, never give up your passion for writing. And NEVER give up on yourself when it seems as if the world have passed you buy. Remember, Apple started in a garage.:)

What now?

You make the time

Often times I don’t practice what I preach. I know I’m not alone when it comes to this cliché. I try to touch on every project that I’m involved in, but more times then less, here lately I have not been writing on my blog. Shame on me right? How can you grow your audience when you’re not giving them anything to help you grow? Well, I have been making time for everything but this. But starting today, I vow to be a better blogger (I’m really not a blogger..lol)…lets just say, I’m gonna try..lol..

I have “Sexrinder” that is way overdue for release. I plan to wrap it up soon! If you’re not familiar with my newest novella “Sexrinder”, go ck out some of older posts for some good ole snippets! I will load newer snippets as the release date grows closer. I also have another book coming for the ladies…”Girls Know Your Worth” well of course it’s a relationship book:). None like you’ve ever read before, trust me. Funny, full of great dating and relationship advise and entertaining!

Take Your Time

Rushing progress can sometimes backfire in your face. We rush into working so feverishly and expect all of the chains to connect only to find out the links weren’t put together well enough. And after your hard rushed work, no one notices it. We all yarn for growth. We are all eager to take the next step forward to reach that certain goal or success level. Nothing happens over night, and trust, this is a true statement. I would love to take the short cut to success or to reach a personal goal, but I can’t. There are no short cuts for me to take. So I try to prioritize my time and work diligently to accomplish my goals towards success. I don’t mind taking the stairs up, so long as I make it to the top. And after my walk up I can ride the elevator back down.

Have A Vision

Often times people think of what they would like to do instead of having a vision. Don’t just think about it, be about it, have a vision for it. Visualize yourself starting the path in becoming successful. Success begin with ideas, goals, and ambition. You have to want it, you have to be hungry for it. You have to work your ass off to make it to the top of the pyramid. It won’t be an easy journey, but once you succeed, you’ll be able to reap the benefits from working hard to get to where you are. Just know that you will have to continue to work hard to stay where you are.

 

Often times, some who succeed fail to realize that in order to maintain success, you have to find ways to stay relevant.  You don’t want to become a one hit wonder, you want to stay consistent and persistent in staying successful. Always visualize yourself doing more than you had before. Once one goal is met, continue to the next. You are the only one who can assure your success. There may be help along the way, but it’s ultimately up to you to have that drive in wanting to stay successful. Work hard and it will pay off. Have a vision for success

I am a writer

I often find myself sitting in a quite place with a cloud of words hanging in my thoughts. My imagination will soon help release those words as I form a thought process to release them into a paragraph. I constantly write down the words onto paper as they come to me a little at a time. I find myself enjoying the flow of every word, the paragraph turns into a page, the pages into a chapter, and the chapters into a book. I am a writer…
