If you are joining me for the first time from the IWSG, thank you for visiting. I look forward to returning the favor, and sharing with you.Curious about what goals other writers are setting or suggesting? Try some ideas by one of my favorite authors Jody Hedlund: http://jodyhedlund.blogspot.com/2015/01/15-ways-to-find-writing-inspiration-in.html
I’m still setting my own goals for the year - trying to decide what should stay, what might be a waste of my time, and where I might learn the most. One book has recently helped me to adapt a more positive attitude. You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner.I have to admit that I’ve seen Joel Osteen on the television, and flipped straight past him many times. I’ve never watched his program, heard one of his sermons, or read one of his books before. Something about this one grabbed my attention, and I felt the need to buy it a few weeks ago. I’m very glad I did. His positive message was a much needed encouragement to my worn out emotions.
Practical and inspiring, this book can be a balm to any wounded spirit. The anecdotes and true tales shared here are meant to encourage you toward eight qualities: Keep Your Vision in Front of You, Run Your Race, Expect Good Things, Have a Positive Mind Set, Commit to Excellence, Keep Growing, Serve Others, and Stay Passionate.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to improve their attitude, circumstances, or productivity.
If you’d like to read more encouragement from other writers, I suggest a copy of the FREE ebook “The Insecure Writer’s Support Group: Publishing and Beyond”. More than 100 authors (including myself) have contributed their ideas to this anthology which can be downloaded for FREE from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, Goodreads.This month I also published an interview of Ashley Weaver in Southern Writer’s magazine. Her first novel just earned her a FOUR book contract!
