Motivational Monday


THERE WILL NEVER BE A POINT
IN YOUR CAREER
WHERE YOU ARE DONE CHOOSING
TO BE HERE.
NO ONE WANTS YOU TO BE A WRITER 
MORE THAN YOU DO.
SO YOU BETTER CARE ABOUT IT.
YOU BETTER CARE ABOUT IT
MORE THAN ANYTHING.
(Kameron Hurley)

Your mother doesn't think you can do it. 

Dream anyway.

Your father doesn't care either way. 

Hope anyway.

Your friends roll their eyes. 

Create anyway.

Your spouse thinks you've lost your mind. 

Write anyway.

  3. All of the other things I wanted to do when I was a kid, my mom said I couldn't do it. But she did believe I could be a writer. However, my father does care and my friends/siblings do roll their eyes. But I care! :D

  4. I'm so blessed that my husband and children have always been so supportive. It really helps when the business gets you down.

    1. I don't know what I would do without my husband and all of his support and encouragement. :)

  5. My spouse can't complain about my writing. If he does, I get to complain about his video games. ;)

  6. Great advice! None of those people can want it for you. It's up to us not only to want it, but to actually do it.

    1. You're right - the wanting is only part of the battle.

  7. I never really hard a firm grip on reality, so no one is surprised.

    I had to share this with a friend who is feeling the stress of losing faith. This is the perfect pick me up.

    1. You're welcome, even though I really only bounce my words off someone else's great ones. :)
