If you’ve noticed a drop in posting frequency lately it’s because the last couple weeks have been professionally challenging on pretty much every level. Were I to post on that, I’m afraid it would amount to whining which would not make for entertaining or enlightening reading!, so I have elected to spare you 🙂 You may thank me with donations of chocolate 🙂
Anyone who writes will tell you the writing life has its ups and downs. I feel it’s important to look on the bright side, especially when discouragement is rearing its ugly head. So here are 2 bright sides, and they are very bright 🙂 First, I got a lovely thank you note from a school I visited. That was very nice.
And second, Beer is zo moe! is printing – very exciting! Check it out:

So, there. To discouragement I say, “Begone!”
And to myself I say, “Butt in chair.” Didn’t someone say something along the lines of 99% of success in writing is just showing up?
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

Thanks for the encouragement, sometimes I need reminding, too. How exciting about Beer is Zo Moe (and what an unusual book title)!
It means “Bear Is So Tired!” in Dutch 🙂
I needed that. How'd you know? I'll try again tomorrow. My new mantra. 🙂
I love your positive attitude. It IS important to look on the bright side.
Well I hope everyone has a great day today – writing and otherwise!
I adore that quote. It's so true. Keep on turning up Susanna, and keep listening to that little voice. 🙂
