    MUSE THERAPY Extra Tip & Tidbit: Defying Gravity

    Happy Tueday to all of you and your muses too!

    If there's one thing I've learned in my ten plus year writing-for-publication journey, it's that, in order to survive and thrive, you've got to harness your inner Elphaba and Defy Gravity!!!



    But here's the secret...you've got to Defy Gravity in your own way, whether that's the "normal" publishing industry approved way or not.

    One of my very fave lines in Elphaba's wonderful Wicked world is when she says:

    "well we can't all come and go by bubble!"


    while referring to Galinda/Glinda the Good Witch.

    And how true is that powerful tidbit?!

    Especially when we all know that the traditional publishing bubble has now burst.

    That business model just ain't workin' anymore, right?

    So here's a little MUSE THERAPY secret that will keep you and your muses happy and sane on your writing-for-publication journey to Publishing Oz:

    The journey - and each path you're on during that journey - is yours alone. So skip to your own beat. Conquer the big-ass, apple-throwing trees and deadly poppy fields by educating yourself on all the Wicked Witches' tricks. And remember...be your own Wizard.

    The traditional publishing world's Wizard-ly curtains have been yanked back by E-reading Toto's.

    So follow you and your muses' hearts across your pages...that's the only way you'll make it home to the publishing success of your dreams.

    It's very encouraging how authors are taking their own careers back.

    And just like Elphaba, we're going green while doing it - in both fabulous income potential and saving trees too!!!

    Luuuvvv that, Tonya!!!
