We’re into the third month of 2021, but have you done anything to make yourself better? Have you changed something that needs changing? Have you renewed your faith?

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Despair…Hope…Publish

The life of a writer…

How do you explain it to someone that’s never written or published anything? In three words, DESPAIR…HOPE…PUBLISH. It’s the three stages that most writers go through. And sometimes they repeat themselves as though on a reel.

Despair – The moment you’re so excited about getting the words on paper, but then you hit a wall. We all do at some point in the writing process. It’s like a given that the wall will show up and sometimes you hit it so hard that you worry about a concussion. Then despair can hit again when you put your work out there and get rejected at every turn. Or sales don’t seem to do as well as you’d hoped.

Hope – That moment when the idea comes into your head. You have the hope of a book that will astound the world. Also, the feeling you get after you bust through the wall of despair. And then again when you send your work to a prospective publisher and you wait. It’s the hope that keeps you moving forward.

Publish – Ahhhhh…. That moment when you hit the publish button and all is good with the world, then all three emotions run rampant. But there’s a relief in publishing your work. And if you’re luck enough to get an amazing publishing contract with a big publisher, then true relief takes over.

It’s amazing the emotions that run through your mind as you start, work on and finish your manuscript. So, let them run, but never let them run you off from your dream.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Hope all of you have a safe New Year’s Eve. Well, I will start the new year with a new book, since I was unable to complete it today. Oh well, life goes on. I will chat with all of you in 2013. That sounds so weird.

As always, good writing and God Bless!newyearmedium_2169507309
