inspiration!

fyi- i found an editor who is AT THIS VERY MOMENT, working on any grammar issues within In Dreams. I should have the newly edited version up this weekend! just wanted y'all to know! YAY!

moving on... lol

I have a "Wall of Inspiration." lol, That's what I call it. Basically, it's the wall next to my desk where I'm supposed to work (but never do because I move around constantly, sit in weird places and go wherever feels best that day to write), filled with all sorts of quotes, song lyrics and goodies. They make me happy. :)

Dreams

Make your dreams come true

Believe in You ATC

Believe in your dreams

It takes everything to follow your heart

Fellow author, Veronica Mordem, shared a quote with me the other day that I have completely stolen, adopted, want to put onto a t-shirt and wear everynight to bed... I sort want to get it put on hats I make my dogs wear as they follow me around the house like stalkers.

"If you want to be successful, you must be willing to be uncomfortable." Gil Eagles

I am in love with this quote because "uncomfortable" was the perfect word to describe how I was feeling after all the crazy download madness! Everytime I start to freak out a little, I read those words and I feel better. Here's to making the un-comfort-ness TOTALLY WORTH IT! :)

Do you have any quotes or things you like to surround yourself with? Share them with me!

Way to go Jen!!! The whole indie publishing experience is a huge learning curve and I for one think you are going in the right direction. I use to have a poster in my room that said, "face the challenges, so that you may experience the exhilaration of victory."

I'm so glad you like that saying about being uncomfortable, because it has helped me through my personal writing process and those emotional roller coaster moments. In life we can choose to break out of our comfort zones and face those uncomfortable feelings and learn from them or we can be stuck in a rut the rest of our lives.
