In thinking about what I could write today or these past few days I found it hard to come up with something. I like to try and be positive but some days it’s hard. My book on Amazon isn’t selling as much as I hoped it would’ve but I have to expect that, I’m an unknown author who is just starting out. I should just be happy because I actually accomplished writing a novel. For my next book I’m going to try and see if I can actually get an agent for. I’m excited for it, it’s a lot different then my first novel where it was a thriller, this one is just a fiction book geared for basically anyone.
I’m blessed to have this gift of creativity that I didn’t really know I had. I feel even blessed for people reading my words, it makes me feel so good. They actually took the time out of their lives to read a story that I wrote.
I enjoy what I’m doing but some days I find myself becoming discouraged. I must not let those feelings take over me. If I fall down I need to get right back up, if I get turned down from an agent I will not let that stop me. I will do what I can to keep throwing my novels out there. If I can’t get signed I will be happy that I can at least be on Amazon and sell my novels. A lot of people have dreams and no one should shy away from them, just push yourself harder and you never know what you can accomplish. I couldn’t believe when I wrote my first novel, I printed it out and I thought, “Wow did I write all that?” I was so excited. Tons of pages and tons of words on those pages.
Follow your dreams! You are what you make yourself.
