Survival Guide for ‘Fed Up’ Writers

5 rules only:

  • Dreams require sacrifice
  • Be the most enthusiastic person you know
  • Don’t dwell on mistakes, bad sales or weather
  • Light can only shine through broken vessels
  • PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. Winston Churchill

      1000 words is great! My #goals haha… I mean to write every day 🙂 because right now it is still messy – some days 2 or 4k, some – zero. I have to be more disciplined 😂💃☕️

      Yep, saw the book of Bear Grylls at the library – decided to share some positivity :)) 🤡🍺📚
