Motivational Monday!

Here are some good news items from last week to jumpstart the good stuff for this week:

Literary agent Rachelle Gardner posted How to Become a Better Writer:  11 Completely Non-Writing-Related Ideas.  My favorite is "Be Creative Any Way You Can" - this includes building something with Legos!  In the comments section of that post, someone mentioned that these were good ideas not only for writing, but also for life.  I couldn't agree more!  Go check them out for a positive boost.

Stacy Post won a Versatile Blogger Award.  Congratulations, Stacy!

As for myself, I found out that Referential Magazine accepted my story, "Rooted in the Past" for publication!  And, since I will then have two stories up over there, I'll get my own Contributor's page.  Yeh!  I'll do a post when the story is up and ready for reading. 

Have a good week, everyone!  Let's keep up the momentum!

Thanks for the nod, Madeline! Congrats on another acceptance at Referential! Can't wait to read it!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

You're welcome, Stacy. And thanks for the congrats about my story. :)

Cathy C. Hall said...

Yeah, I ditto that congrats, Madeline!

And thanks for that link to Rachelle's post. Honestly, I do all that stuff. I watch TV, eat (that's my hobby) and try new things (Twitter counts as two, right?). Seriously, I should be one heckuva writer by now! :-)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Ha! You and me both! :)

Thanks for the congrats!

I am so proud of you. You are doing your thing!
I aspire to be as prolific as you.
And Cathy, I'm glad Twitter counts! LOL

Arlene, that was so sweet - thank you!

I'm not nearly as prolific as I'd like but I've learned I've got to go at my own pace, do it my way. I need to compare myself to myself and that's it. Comparing myself and my work to others is a slippery slope...
