Success takes time. I see so many of these viral videos or songs that are a One-Hit-Wonder. I don’t want to be a One-Hit-Wonder.
Tom Hanks was in a movie about One-Hit-Wonders. A great flick if anyone wants to see it. In the end, their lives went back to normal.
I don’t want to go back! I want normal to be writing–all the time. I want to get published. I want to keep getting published. And I will work as hard as I have to.
And the one thing I’ve learned is that doing something right means taking the time to perfect your skills. I don’t know how close I am to my goal. But I will keep going until I’m close enough that some agent can’t bear the thought of rejecting me. Editors will wonder where I’ve been all my life. And I will tell them: I’ve been learning, working, honing the words.
And that day, it will all be worth it.
Until then–here are the ways I am getting there, one month at a time.
1) Write 20,000 words on RFA
2) Blog 4 times
3) Read 4 books, one on the writing craft
4) Do not think negatively about the queries I sent in February
5) Participate in Pitch Madness: Clue Edition (I’m scared to do this, but the agents are amazing!)
Good Luck #WriteMotivation buddies and anyone else out there who wants to be writer.
