Triumphant! she declared /a Writing Rooms article


I was going to post something different but stopped because it’s a work-in-progress activity. I am planning to do a performance ‘live’ – yikes! But I will tell you about it, when it’s really happening.

Instead, I have taken a look back to 12 months ago. February 2014 was a strange time. I had lost a good friend to a sudden illness, I had taken a year off work and was starting on my Going to be a Writer Someday – project.

When I began, I started a Writer’s List where I record my achievements. It reminds me of what I have done when I feel like I am treading water.

Here’s a few excerpts:

  •  published an eBook 🙂
  •  sold an eBook 🙂 🙂
  •  got 4 star reviews for one of my eBook 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
  •  someone liked my Blog Post  ~~ !!!!
  •  completed a Creative Writing course  A+
  •  a blog of a poem was re-blogged  / lovely warm glow.

I realised that as much as I do want to make money from my writing and use this as a career, the real happy emotions come from much simpler things. Someone reading my work, someone making a comment/like – those are things to be valued.

So, if you are feeling a bit stale – think very carefully about what’s important. Is it really the money? Maybe the joy is in a simpler form.

// the 4 star reviews are for my eBook: Towards the Stars and were not purchased/bribed or dishonestly added 😕
