Sooo…another late start. I got distracted. It happens. Real life stuff. Marketing stuff. (I’m attempting another book trailer and I’m not only having to find images but having to re-teach myself how to use the music and video programs and the lessons are slow.) And no, that’s not why–exactly–I picked this tidbit from the Universe. I mostly picked it because it reminds of of how hard, yet simple, it is to be a writer. Writing comes easy. Usually. Not always–like now when real life is being a witch. It’s the other stuff that goes with writing–the publishing, the marketing, the begging for reviews, the worry about sales and whether you can uphold your financial obligations for the month that drags on the soul and the imagination.
Discretion, dear Silver, is the better part of valor.
Spontaneity is the better part of brilliance.
And imagination is the better part of making dreams come true.
Yes you can,

Things I learned, Silver, from a bard, a scientist, and a child who went on to rock the world…. Yes you have.
Still, the Universe has faith in me so I guess it’s time to pull up my big girl panties, grab another cup of coffee and get to work.
