No hint why the center head wanted to see me.
With lead stomach, I walked in and found the center head wanted me to be the Spotlight Employee of the month.
Of course this week I found that my ebooks had been pirated, explaining the ZERO sales of late ...
so if any of you out there haven't gotten one of my ebooks yet ...
please consider getting one just so I can see a number besides ZERO in my column! :-)
The pat on the back by my center and co-workers has helped me keep on keeping on this week.
It got me to wondering what keeps you going as a writer?
Writing is not about writing in spurts of inspiration. It’s about doing the work, day-in and day-out.
The true mark of a champion is a commitment to the craft of writing.
Read about the lives of great writers. At one point they all said, "I can't go on." And then, they went on.
The WHY of their keeping on varied, but they kept on.
We all have walked sidewalks.
Remember the blade of grass thrusting up stubbornly from between the cracks?
Despite the tramp of countless feet, the tiny gram of soil for its roots,
that one blade reached up for the sun. That must be us.

I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully
and have made a great deal of money,
and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident.
Not one of them writes elegant first drafts.
All right, one of them does, but we do not like her very much.
So how do you keep going as a writer?
