A week or so ago a good friend and fellow writer/blogger was climbing the walls while waiting to hear from her agent about her present project. Her lack of PATIENCE was taking over. She couldn't focus and her mind spiraled in so many different directions.
I'd like to share with you what I had told her. For those of you who have difficulty waiting and are not patient, try to focus your attention on your craft, your family, you life ...
I know that sounds lame, but stressing over the "waiting game" is not healthy. Life is stressful enough, why add to it?
I learned early in life that nothing came easy for me. I had to work hard and long at whatever I wanted. I leaned to be patient. It took time, but it could be done. I also learned timing was EVERYTHING...
I even named my blog In Time ... because it takes time to achieve our goals.
So please don't lose heart if you lose your patience. Storm, rant, rage! Get it out of your system and then keep at it. Your patience WILL pay off In Time ...
Please check out the other posts here. We are all here to help each other get through the ups and downs on our long journey.
Today is also the first installment of the RULE OF 3 month long blogfest hosted by J. C. Martin Fighter Writer, Damyanti Biswas @ Amlokiblogs, Lisa Vooght @ Flash Fiction, and Stuart Nager @ Tale Spinning!
Drop by any of these blogs to find out all the details and to read the other entries. It's a fun, yet complicated Flash Fiction blogfest. It takes place in the Town of Renaissance and all who are involved will be creating a continued story with three main characters. Each week we write an entry based on a prompt given by our hosts. So PLEASE drop back each Wednesday/Thursday in October to find out what happens next.
I am still working on my entry, but I should have it up later tonight or the first thing in the morning. I do have until tomorrow to post.
Have a great day everyone!
