Pep Talk

Howdy All,

Well, I thought for Monday I'd focus on encouragement. I mean, I post words of encouragement up on my blog daily, but I think recalling certain things that encourage us also helps.

I'm reminded of the words from the movie, The Water Boy, where that one character says: "You can do it! You can do it!"

Or Home Depot's commercials, "You can do it, we can help." (although, how Home Depot can help with writing--nothing comes to me off the top of my head, but still...)

How about The Little Engine That Could? "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can."

One of the members of the NWHRWA said that everyone should enjoy writing. That it's important that it stays fun. I agree with her. If you're not having fun, then it's hard to write.

I mean we all have those days where you run into writer's block, but it doesn't mean you can't find some way to have fun.

Even if it means getting up and walking away for a bit. Maybe even picking up a book that you love...and just letting your imagination go its own way for awhile.

So...anyway... YOU CAN DO IT! YOU CAN WRITE IT! GO FOR IT! GO WRITER GO!

Have A Meritorious Monday!

Marsha,

Actually, no I wasn't, but if I had pom-poms that would've been a good idea LOL

You're welcome :-)

Enjoying the process is one of the most easily forgotten things, but perhaps the most critical.
