The Bright Side

If you've noticed a drop in posting frequency lately it's because the last couple weeks have been professionally challenging on pretty much every level.  Were I to post on that, I'm afraid it would amount to whining which would not make for entertaining or enlightening reading!, so I have elected to spare you :)  You may thank me with donations of chocolate :)

Anyone who writes will tell you the writing life has its ups and downs.  I feel it's important to look on the bright side, especially when discouragement is rearing its ugly head.  So here are 2 bright sides, and they are very bright :)  First, I got a lovely thank you note from a school I visited.  That was very nice.

And second, Beer is zo moe! is printing - very exciting!  Check it out:
Nicole, the talented illustrator, overseeing color with the editor, Bert Veltman

A sheet of covers!
So, there.  To discouragement I say, "Begone!"

And to myself I say, "Butt in chair."  Didn't someone say something along the lines of 99% of success in writing is just showing up?

"Courage doesn't always roar.  Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow." ~ Mary Anne Radmacher


  1. Thanks for the encouragement, sometimes I need reminding, too. How exciting about Beer is Zo Moe (and what an unusual book title)!

  2. It means "Bear Is So Tired!" in Dutch :)

  3. I needed that. How'd you know? I'll try again tomorrow. My new mantra. :-)

  4. I love your positive attitude. It IS important to look on the bright side.

  5. Well I hope everyone has a great day today - writing and otherwise!

  6. I adore that quote. It's so true. Keep on turning up Susanna, and keep listening to that little voice. :-)


I love to hear from you and try to respond to every comment. Please share your thoughts!
