This month I don't need the couch

It is July 2013. The month my first novel, Pop Travel, is published, thanks to Curiosity Quills. And in only

4 DAYS!
Thanks, Brinda, for the 3D image!
I have been a pretty steady member of the Insecure Writers Support Group, hosted by Alex J. Cavannaugh. Most of the time I find something to moan about without much trouble. But today, I want to spread some good vibes! Because not only is Pop Travel coming out, but Broken Branch Falls is soon to be next!

And I also want to say how happy I am that many of my fellow bloggers, who I've been friends with for a while, are also being picked up for publication or taking on the self-publishing journey.

So to anyone who is struggling or just starting out, it will happen for you! Don't let negative responses get your down. Don't let a writing funk be the end of you. And don't let anyone tell you you can't do it!

If you persevere, you will succeed. Don't give up! And if you ever want to rant or whine - do it!  We writers love to listen. Get it off your chest! Release those bad thoughts to make room for good ones. And keep writing!

And thanks for always supporting me when I was low. You guys are the best!

Congrats Tara. I can't wait to read Pop Travel. My IWSG post is about envy. It's easy to get over it when such great things are happening to cool people like you.

I can always use inspiration!!!

Rena said...

Four more days!!!! And you're absolutely right. We can't get there if we take ourselves out of the race.

Ooooh, a comment that counts double! Stopped in to visit for #IWSG and found your contest. Sweet!

As a self-publisher, I know the joy in seeing your hard work out there where others can read it. Congratulations!!

Thanks for writing such an encouraging post! Everything always arrives at the right time, even if we don't always understand why something happens when it does. Something meant to happen, happens.

Beverly Fox said...

HUGE CONGRATS TO YOU! I'm psyched to follow you as you hop around The blogosphere on your tour this month!
And thanks for the positive vibes- seeing you and so many other writers make it gives me faith that I will one day join your ranks.

Wonderful! It's so true. We can't lose our direction because of rejection or some sort of a difficulty.

Best of luck with your release! Let me know if you need a guest post stop on your blog tour.
