. . . for making this day possible. 🙂 And as Marie Antoinette was rumored to say (but really didn’t), “Let them eat cake.” Before I go and do just that (actually, work first, then cake—that’s the schedule), I’ll leave you with time-tested advice:
• Go for the gold.
• The only limits you have are the ones you put on yourself.
• Reach for the sky.
Everyone tells you to dream big. Parents. Guidance counselors. Athletic equipment stores. Strangers on the street. Today, why not go ahead and do that?
I know what you’re thinking: How can I do that? Have you seen my WIP lately???
Listen to Auntie L. There are some days when I feel in about as much control as a Yoda hand puppet. Writing is a floppy, frisky, untamed thing. And yes, some days, I can’t get my sentences neatly corralled. (“Yahhhh. Git along little dogies!”) So I’m tempted to give up and play Pokémon or Harvest Moon. But if I give up, that leaves my sentences wandering around aimlessly, still wild and free. I can’t keep doing that to them. So, I’m going to work past the temptation to give up.
What about you? Are you with me?
