Today is a great day for a checkup.
How did you do on those January goals?
Are your creative resolutions for 2013 still on track?
If not – no worries.
It’s a new day!
It’s a new month!
So, set a few goals for February.
And if you need a bit of inspiration to get you back on track, here are a couple of stories that should do the trick –
The first one comes straight from Katherine Applegate, this year’s Newbery Medal Winner (for her book, The One and Only Ivan).
In a Publishers Weekly interview, she discusses how tough it was to get that book written and finally published. Then she mentions how she recently ran across a scrap of paper containing words she had scratched out years ago. The words were – “Should I give up on Ivan or not?”
Hmmm… I think we all know the answer to that one. You can check out the entire article here.
And then there’s this YouTube bit. If you've got a story that’s in need of a hero – THIS is what a hero looks like.
“Never give up,
for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
~ Harriet Beecher Stowe
PROMPT: Get back on that pony and get ready to ride! YeeHAW!
