I’m going to have a big year, and I’m going to give it to myself.

It’s only four months into the year and with all I have done already, I can’t wait to see what eight more months will bring, as I keep my head down and work on my 2015 goals I set for myself. My goal is simple, to start writing everyday and to delve deep into my new book by 2016.

So I’m going to have a big year, and I going to give it to myself. The creditials and fame I receive after the work is finished, is not the gift God gave me, but the words of expression are. The gratitude should not be the more sought after. I’m open to the fruit’s of my passion, being the union between writing and the writer, in that my dreams of a writer are manifested. I’m dicoverying everyday what that means for me and in time what will mean to others, which is longer lasting. Remember JD Salinger stop writing for publication and only wrote for himself and suggested that other writers do the same. Who knows where his words took him. So this is not what external forces can do for me, but what I can do. We must be practical too. That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying to get my work published. We all desire an audience, publicity and a little cash.

So whether your reading a great author you love to get a few pointers, blogging daily to get into the flow of writing, revising old fiction, improving your grammar and usage, sending out manuscripts, starting a novel that you are excited about. you are doing it and there power in doing, so relax by doing you will learn about writing and you.

When I get discouraged with the world and what I can’t control, I take a couple of days off and when I start working again, I’ll start byreading my own writing and it’s the most comforting thing because it says. You did this and you have so much more in you. And there you are writing again before you know it and all is right in the world again.

When you write follow your heart because that the part that wants to come out. Writing will put you back on top of the world quicker than anything.

I’m going to post this again and again, because the real reason I want to write anyway is to help others in the the world if I can.
