Thursday Thoughts: Universal Sweet Nothings

This popped up in my inbox on Tuesday and I immediately decided to pass it along today for two reasons. First, when things get tough, I forget this particular message and truly needed the reminder this week. And second, while it is important for real life, it also applies to the stories I tell. Just like real people, fictional characters need to be nudged along with these thoughts, too.

Just a reminder, Silver, in case you forgot, in case you’ve thought otherwise, or in case you never knew…

There is nothing you can’t have.

There is nothing you can’t do.

There is nothing you can’t be.

The Universe

P.S. Silver, nothing means nothing.

I think we all need to hear this from time to time. You know, a quick reminder that we are important and that we can do and be whatever we want. As people, we shouldn’t lose sight of this. As writers, we need to afford our characters the same courtesy. Give yourself a mental hug today and show some of that love to the characters of whatever book you are writing or reading. NOTHING is more important, right?

    Thank you, needed this.
    Ive been struggling in alot of things lately.
    My writing is not happeningat all right now, and thats a major D trigger.
    So, I planned alittle getaway the end of the month, hopefully the change of scenery will help get me out of the deep hole.

      🤗 I know the feeling. If I’m getting 500-1000 words a week, I’m grateful. My brain just doesn’t want to settle back into work mode. I’ve thought about switching to the laptop and going someplace different–the yard, a quiet coffee shop (as if one exists! LOL) or even a library but I’ve finally gotten my desk top work space set up so I can see. Writing is like exercise. If you stop for whatever reason, it’s really tough to get back in the habit. Push back on the D. Find things that make you happy and incorporate them into your writing–even if you toss those words later. That works for me sometimes. Hang in there, hon! You aren’t alone. More 🤗
