I love this new era of writing… we get to meet so many different writers and authors from all over the world in so many different ways. There are poets, novelists, essayists, etc. that brim with talent and potential.
I met a gentleman in one of my Facebook writer groups and he asked me to take a look at his short story, A Man’s Journey Into Darkness. It’s a good story with potential to be a great story.
This is a quick read published on the WordPress blog, Cold Coffee Stand. Patrick is originally from Ireland and moved around Europe a bit before finding himself back in his home island. He wrote one liners, limericks and jokes, short birthday wish ( verses) before dabbling in story writing.
Treat yourself to something that makes you feel good; feel wonderful; feel alive! Work on something fun and delightful. Take a nap, make some coffee, go for a walk and look at some freezing streams somewhere. Get a manicure, buy a book, write a book. Whatever it takes to be kind to you.
Do you treat yourself, ever? Well, you should. It is a new year and a time for new beginnings and new goals but it is also a time for a new you and a new way of thinking. It is a time to lighten up on yourself (just a little) so you can go after what you want, make your dreams come true and treat yourself every day to a life you crave.
Happy 2018 everyone. My book did well when it was free and has now fallen below the Top 100, but that is okay! It is my first publication… I am not worried. I will prosper and treat myself to amazing days in 2018.
