Break? What break? I still have two more posts to share for this year: an author interview and "The Best of Write with Fey for 2014," so if you're around...stay tuned!
This is not my traditional Writing About post that features tips and advice on different characters and scenes. If you’re looking for help on something specific, check out the list of posts I’ve done HERE.
This post is serving as my last Writing About post for 2014. But have no fear! I have more planned for 2015! :)
I’m diverting from the normal format I use though to discuss hope.
I believe hope is a driving force. Even when I’m going through a hard time (And if you read my IWSG posts, you know I’ve had many struggles this past year.), I always wrap hope around myself like Monarch butterfly wings. With hope, I am able to squash any hardships. With hope, I can persevere. With hope, I can continue to write.
If I didn’t have hope, I would’ve stopped writing after all the rejections I got for my unpublished series. (Are you tired of me referring to my supernatural-thriller series as that? I am!) But I truly believe that I wouldn’t have received the ideas for those four books if I wasn’t meant to share them. I tell all writers who feel beaten and let down by rejections the same thing.
Have hope and you will publish your stories!
Have hope and you will reach your goals for 2015!
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tunes without the words—
And never stops—at all—“
QUESTION: Do you have hope?
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!
Here's a rock version of Carol of the Bells by August Burns Red. Enjoy! :)
