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 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.:)
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!
Set realistic goals for yourself without placing limits on ways to achieve them. Don’t push yourself to the point you feel defeated while attempting to reach the very goals you set for yourself. Remain focused.
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…
If you’re looking for change in your life, be sure to start with yourself first. Often times we want to change the things around us all while forgetting that we too may need to be reevaluated.
The beauty of writing is a way of freedom. It allows you to be who ever you choose to be at any giving time. Writing releases your inner thoughts and ideas. Your most wildest imagination can be unleashed from it’s untamed state. Writing is like magic, the words appear without boundaries, rules, or a wrong or right way to display the unique thoughts. Writing is endless.
