Good Monday morning, gentle readers. I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.
I was sitting, thinking, and a song popped into my head.
"It's a long way, to the top, if you want to rock and roll." AC/DC
Yes. Yes it is.
Without ALL the blather -- As with every war, it's the small victories that add up. The small challenges that somehow make us realize we are winning. Same with writing. Challenges -- Victories. So how do you measure your victories to the top? Nailing a scene. Pulling together a troublesome chapter? Finishing the first draft? Writing a query?
When do you reward yourself? And with what?
****I'll go first. I rewarded myself with a bag of caramel popcorn for finishing the short story for NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND. And when I finally finished the last 4 scenes of REMEMBERING YOU I took myself for a drive around the outskirts of town to look at the foliage.
