Here’s Some Writer’s Love

Success is not built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe.

Sumner Redstone

There’s a lot of days where I’d happily throw my computer across the room if I knew I could get a new one. I’d rather avoid the discomfort that comes with all this. I’d happily write in notebooks where nobody would ever see my writing until they put me in the grave. Alas, there’s no growth keeping all your thoughts and lessons to yourself. Sharing is caring. Sharing helps people to relate to you and even more so to themselves.

So evenings like tonight, I have to remember my why. I have to remember how far I’ve come in the writing game. And that all this isn’t about approval or validation. It’s about reflection, it’s about staying connected with my writing, and most importantly it’s about adding to my life in a positive way.

I want to live while I write. I don’t want to be stuffed in a room all day pumping out books. On the flip side, I do thrive writing by myself for large amounts of hours a day. I guess I want it all. I want love and laughter and intimacy. I want to face different challenges alongside my fellow creatives, and I want to challenge myself in solitude.

These are thoughts and ideas that help me stay focused.

Imagine this:
Someone feeling the positive impact on what you thought was one of your worst writing days.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
