Last night I realized I blog today. Well, I soaked in the tub to get inspiration and nothing came, so I worked on gathering information about Prostitution in the 1800's in the West for a workshop I'm giving, and still nothing came to me. I was sure as soon as my head hit the pillow all kinds of things would start popping into my head. Nope, drifted off to dreamland without a hitch.
So, here it is morning and I'm still trying to figure out what to write. I don't want anything deep or anything people fill obligated to respond to, because heck, it's Christmas Eve and most probably won't even look at this.
I thought about doing one on respect, but that is too close to an unsolved issue at the moment to comment on. I'll wait. I thought about doing one about a writer's Christmas Wish list, but I think that was kind of hit on earlier. I could just write you all a poem, but Alice is far better at that than I am.
So my blog today is simply, a pep talk. Believe in your abilities as a writer and don't let rejection letters or nay-sayers sway you from your desire to write. If you can entertain, touch emotions, and coherently write about a subject- you are a writer and don't let anyone tell you any different! Believe in yourself and Believe in Dreams! They do come true if you believe and surround yourself with others who believe.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
