ASPIRING ROMANCE WRITER

I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

Speak it into existence

There is a theory that goes What You Speak You Make Your Reality. I think this can be true. Because if you say, " I am a loser. I'll never succeed." Then other people see you as what you have told the world you are.
When it comes to my writing, in the past, I had to overcome my own self doubts. I had this pesky self defeating voice in my head yelling " You are dreaming if you actually think you will ever publish anything! What a waste of time. Give up now while you still have time to do something else." and the worse thing it ever said was "People will laugh at you."

Thankfully, I have mostly silenced that internal critic. I consider that one more step I had to take on this writing journey. I had to believe it was possible to become a published writer.
Now I am taking a step in faith and saying, "My novel will one day be in bookstores. I will be proud of my published story. I will never stop writing."
If I can commit one hundred percent to those statements I don't think anything can stop me from seeing that become my reality.
But I can not whisper my intention. I must speak it loud. I must fight my own doubts and anyone in the world who tries to discourage me. I must scream for this dream.
This is a fight to the death and I intend to win.

Song Lyrics of the Day

Digging deep,
I feel my conscience burn.

I need to know who or what I am.

This hunger jolts me from complacency.

It rocks me
and makes me
meet myself.......

I've been everybody else

now I want to be something


closer to myself.

    Hi Sara,
    what you wrote reminds me of every new age affirmation to say the things you want to see happen already come about, like in the present tense.
    and even in Christianity, Christ often said to believe in the things unseen as if you asked in prayer, you mustn't doubt but to believe you already have it...otherwise you would be like a boat rocking in the storm!
    How true!
    I look forward to seeing your name on a book cover, Sara. Of course, it is only a matter of time.

    Sara;
    Believe me, I have read some of what you have written, and you do have it in you to write a book worthy of publication. So keep on writing! I'm looking forward to reading your first book.

    "You are dreaming if you actually think you will ever publish anything! What a waste of time. Give up now while you still have time to do something else." and the worse thing it ever said was "People will laugh at you."-
    I was there a year ago. Now I am in a situation where I have a choice to make taking a job getting paid to write, or not. I decided NOT, as journalism is still not my dream- the New York Times Bestseller list is- but if you start small, find a local publication to contribute to, get a writing resume... I started just by querying a state mag here called NM Woman Magazine and have been freelancing for them, because of that my local newspaper has been trying to recruit me to be full time staff- that's the job I turned down. You'll get there, and you are absolutely right- you just have to believe you can.

    I have read what you wrote and believe in your writing. It is a long road, but you will get there. I know it is hard to believe that sometimes! I feel the same way but we just have to keep believing in ourselves and others will believe in us as well.

    Susan, you got it exactly right when you said
    Christ often said to believe in the things unseen as if you asked in prayer,
    because that is what my pastor was speaking about that at church on Sunday. That is what inspired this post. I believe it can only help make me to speak my desire to life. I can't wait till I can hold in my hand a novel written by you and the day when I have one written my me to treasure. It's coming, I know it is.

    Hey Ray,
    Thanks for the compliment! All encouragement helps me to keep striving for my goal. It feels like my online writing friends are my cheerleading squad pushing me to go for it. I hope I can return the favor to everyone at the group and everyone who reads this blog.

    Bye for now,
    Sara

    Christa,
    thanks for stopping by and commenting. It is nice to know that other writers hear the same doubting voice in their head. There are so many things not having to do with putting the words on the page to overcome when it comes to pursuing my writing but I am up for the challenge. Beating back that voice of doom was one more step toward making my dream real. Congrats on doing the same!
    Bye for now,
    Sara

    Hello Kelley,
    You make me smile when I read that you believe in me. All of my online writing friends mean so much to me as far as knowing I have support. It's great reading your blog and seeing how fast you are improving and getting accepted for publication already. The group feels to me like a team and I get a lot of joy out of seeing anyone on the team succeed. Thanks for your support.
