Hello everyone! I’m hoping that everyone is well and that there are some of you here that are choosing to participate in National Novel Writing Month this year.

Hello everyone…. I have been hard at work but yet it feels like I have gotten absolutely nothing done.  Guess it’s a good thing that writers can write in their mind even when it doesn’t get put on paper, lol.  Please go check out my latest blog posts in which I wrote about living in the moment that you are in and celebrating where you are in your life now, about watching the circle of people that you surround yourself with and protecting yourself from people who are against you and what you stand for, and also about not placing our opportunities in boxes to be put on a shelf and learning how to ask God for what it is we want in this life and knowing that we deserve all that it is we want out of it. 

So please show your support and check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and let me know what you think.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

Okay so I am trying to get everything back on track and get myself motivated again.  I have come to the realization that I am not working nearly as hard as I should be or could be and I am looking to change that.  I have wasted far too much time trying to fit in with what others think my goals should be and know that I was never meant to be a part of the pack but rather standing out from them.  I have let my frustration at the lack of progression that I am seeing get the better of me and was failing to understand that I will wait for this dream to happen as long as it takes because that is my purpose in this world.  I am trying my best to lead by example for my daughter and implement in her not just the drive for her dream but that she was to put work into that driving force as well.  I was reminded of my initial influence in my writing career when Dr. Maya Angelou passed away last week and also of the fact that at some point you just have to understand that the fear will always be present.  You just can’t keep acting as if it’s not there and try to hide from that fear.  I understand with more clarity that with every victory that you achieve, there are battle scars that go along with them that you just have to embrace.  Fear cannot be sugarcoated or disguised as anything other than what it is.

The last several weeks have been stressful and challenging.  As a writer, technical difficulties such as having your internet not working is pretty much like throwing several wrenches into all the work that you are doing.  Since most of what I do I need the internet for I literally felt a little crippled in my craft.  But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t manage to get out a few blog posts during that time (that’s what libraries are for right, lol).  I questioned myself or more over had my choices of following my dream questioned by many people in the last few weeks so my posts were about sustaining my dreams, being optimistic even through challenges, seeking greatness and not mediocrity, taking better care of myself for creativity’s sake, listening to that inner voice, being halfway through the year with not many tasks checked off my goal list, and what the other side of quitting would look like to me.

The last few weeks have been….interesting.  I had a big opportunity for me slip right through my fingers and losing that opportunity made me want to give up completely.  I literally felt like there was just no point to me being so determined to achieve something that didn’t appear to be working out as well as I feel it should be.  It certainly was in my own plans and delayed me in my current goals and projects and what I was trying to achieve.  I took some time and eventually came to my senses.  I am no now, nor have I ever been, a quitter.  I have worked hard to come this far and even though I don’t feel like I have come as far as I should have by now, it certainly is not where I started off at.  There are some habits that I am working on changing and as I am altering those habits I am starting to feel my mind racing with ideas again.

I wasn’t very productive at all last week and this week, while I have gotten some things accomplished on my to-do list, I still did not get as much achieved as I would have liked to.  I do have updated posts on my blog that I would love for you to check out.  I shared my thoughts on writing outside the box that some try to place you in as a writer.  I wrote about my habits (good and bad) as a writer and how they either help me or hinder me in my journey.  I took time to promote some things within the Write 2 Be Media company and even to promote a couple of other up and coming businesses that I think are very worthy of being looked at. 

Despite last week being a non-productive week for me I wrote about the need to still show up and move forward in your goals rather than standing still.  Some personal issues had me thinking about how I prefer to make my own route and march to my own beat but of course that does mean that you sometimes have to accept that everything is not going to come easy and you will not always be in constant movement and learn to not beat yourself up over it. 

I also came to two important realizations recently and that is that even when you are in route to becoming a leader, you must first learn how to follow someone else’s lead and that if you are truly going to get where you are going you have to stop putting limits on what you can achieve.  We all have our own goals and dreams to attain but we essentially all want the same thing; to be great in what we love to do. 

I hope you will check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and journey with me trying to make sense of this whole writing world and show your support.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!
