We have a new week starting tomorrow for us as writers. Some of us will gather excuses like eggs at an Easter egg hunt about why they can't do any writing. Some of us will make our list of goals and post it above our messy desk. Some of us will go to bed tonight dreaming of the way we will bring our blank paper alive.
What kind of writer are you?
I hope this is the week you get serious about it. I hope this is the week you see your writings and scribblings and stories as a gift from God.
I hope this is the week you take a giant step forward and maybe tear a corner out of the box and stick your foot out. It won't fall off. I promise.
A few months back when my husband was still unemployed, I dragged him to Toastmasters with me. I'm the person who has not stood in front of a group of people since Speech 101. But that still small voice inside me said, " Go do it. It might come in handy." A few speeches later, a writers group in a bordering town asked me to speak. Guess what? I was thankful for sticking that toe out.
So when you stare at your computer screen tomorrow--think BIG!
What is your box? What is taping you in? Hope to hear from you!
