It’s Friday again in Florida. It’s the day I review what I’ve accomplished as a writer this past week. It’s the day I pat myself on the back for sticking with it even though I felt like throwing in the towel on more than one occassion. It’s the day I tell myself “it’s worth it,” and “you’re good enough.”
I don’t know how many rejections you received this week—either by e-mail or in your mail box outside—but today’s the day to let them go. File them deep inside that folder you’re keeping to remind yourself that you are at least submitting. Or better yet—delete that e-mail and toss the rest in the trash!
Today’s Friday and you can see the weekend ahead of you just waiting to give you that refreshing feeling that your brain needs so that when you and I sit down at our computers on Monday morning and stare at that blank sheet of paper or that chapter filled with editing needs—we’re ready.
I don’t know about you, but I accomplished a lot of writing this week. (pat…pat) I submitted one article and wrote copy for four pages on a Web site about something I knew nothing about! My book still languishes at the bottom of my screen, but I’ll be back Monday and it will get pushed to the top of my pile.
I made it through another week. I celebrated a success with one friend who got her book deal and I met a few new people on-line. Even yesterday, an old college roommate found me through my blog when she googled my name. Exciting things happen every day.
It’s Friday and I’m still a writer. How about you?
