Hello Ebi! Hello Fam!
Even when we’re passionate about writing, there are times when we need an extra push—something or someone to keep us going. Having images that inspire is a great way to stay positive and keep your goals in sight. Here are some of the images I refer to:
This my book cover. Whenever I see this image, I am reminded of how I felt when I completed my manuscript. Though I am not traditionally published yet, I have every reason to believe that I will be one day! 🙂
Ah yes. B&N. The book lovers and authors dream. I have pleasant memories of perusing their shelves and running my hands over the cover of a brand new book. I still love going to this store, but it will be even better when I see my book on one of their shelves! I’d even be happy with my local book store!
Like a flower, writers must keep growing—and this GIRL will continue to do so! I’ll continue drinking from that well of knowledge. Like the UNCF always says, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste!”
Similar to butterflies, we writers also experience change or metamorphosis. We start as a novice to one day becoming an expert. (At least that is my wish!)
Obviously, this is not my family picture. But when I look at pictures of my immediate family—especially my three boys, I have more incentive than ever to get published!
What images incite optimism in you? Whether you’re dealing with writer’s block, stewing over a negative review or you’re questioning whether your editor’s suggestion will make or break your story—just take a minute, close your eyes and let all your positive images comfort you.
