MUSE THERAPY Extra Tidbit: Commitment
Happy Thursday, Muse Queens and Kings To Be!
My MUSE THERAPY Kindle Nation Daily Debut "Push Day" is here!!!
Both today and this Saturday the 29th, my #1 Amazon Bestselling Book MUSE THERAPY: UNLEASHING YOUR INNER SYBIL is one of "the" featured books on the hugely popular and well-read Kindle Nation Daily!
Here's the scoop on what KND is and why this kind of "push" is sooo very vital to sales success for every new, Indie Epubbed Author...
The WG2E - Kindle Nation Daily Is The Place To Be!
In honor of my KND Debut, I'm giving y'all another MUSE THERAPY treat right outta the pages of my book...
Today's Muse Therapy Extra Tidbit is all about "Commitment" --- oh, and not the
neurotic writer-nut type my DH thinks I may need to be committed for...LOL!!!
We're talking "commitment" as derived from a question a past student asked me.
"I'm curious when you became serious enough to commit to getting up at ungodly hours of the morning. Is that something that came once you felt like you were
really close? I battle this in my own mind because sometimes I think I AM
working hard and then other times, I think I'm a major slug compared to other
people. So maybe I don't want it enough or I'm not truly willing to do what it
takes to get published."
First, for me and my commitment level -- and I'll preface this by saying that's
why my DH thinks I'm a neurotic writer-nut and may need to be committed - enough
is never enough!
I'm always, always, ALWAYS asking myself "what else can I be doing to bring that next deal and the next one after that and the next one...?"
But that's just me and what works for me and my Carrie Squad. I've just got
tons of ideas always flowing (which I jot down on whatever is around me at the
time...you don't even want to go there...LOL!...I'll scribble on ANYTHING!!!)
because I never stop thinking about producing my ideas. Even when I try to shut
it off, I can't. Except when I go to bed...LOL! I'm completely out in less
than five minutes! LOL!
Your commitment - whether it's getting up wayyy early or staying up late or just writing one hour each day or less - is serious enough WHEN YOU'RE READY FOR IT
TO BE. It's really that simple and almost that harsh and beyond difficult at
the same time.
I have NEVER waited for any bit of success (winning a contest, finding an agent,
getting a great critique) to catapult my desires to another level.
I've always "Acted As If" I'm already there...
Because why you ask...
Debbie Macomber told me to do just that at RWA in Reno in 2005ish (not sure that's the right year but close). That's how she (and Allison Brennan too - she's been a great personal example to me as well --- luv them!) made it...because they never stopped to let the doubt that they weren't there yet stop 'em!
I've never slowed down or looked back since!
If you're ready NOW then NOW is the time to step-it-up!
That being said...I'm going to challenge you to MAKE MORE OF YOUR TIME CENTERED
ON PURSUING YOUR WRITING-FOR-PUBLICATION CAREER. You all may be doing tons of
fabulous things for the writing world and beyond but how is YOUR WRITING
PRODUCTION when you look at pages produced or ideas firmly in place and ready to
We're actually going to be doing a time study of sorts in one of the sessions in
this book. So hang in there with me.
And please don't think I'm telling you to quit any of the wonderful things you
do IF THEY'RE MAKING YOUR MUSES DANCE AND HELPING YOU CRANK OUT YOUR OWN
PAGES...but and that's a huge but...we're going to make sure you really WANT AND
NEED to do these things for YOUR production level and goals.
It's great to be BUSY but is your "BUSY" GETTING YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO? If
not, we'll find a way to get you there!!!
