Welcome to Day 92 and Day 27 of our Writing Challenge. I got in 710 words this morning and spent some time thinking about what it takes to be a successful.
Like most of you I'm working towards creating an extraordinary writing and publishing career. And like I've said so many times before, self-publishing usually means you're a one person show. I do get some help on my book covers and my editing, but the writing, the formatting to publish, the marketing, the business side of writing, it's all on me.
Which means there's a whole lot of SELF that goes into making it all work...
SELF Discipline...simply showing up and scheduling the time to write, to edit, to be in touch with your novel and to bring it to completion, EVERYDAY.
SELF Motivation...staying in the game and working hard, even when you want to zone out with some reality TV, or social media.
SELF Evaluation...Giving yourself an honest and yes sometimes critical review of how everything from your plot lines to your marketing plans are going. Like I said yesterday, keep what works, change what doesn't.
Here's...Today's Takeaway Lesson...
"Real Success, Lasting Success, Will Start & End With You”
Here's to Being All In,
