I had this little post on Operation Awesome on Wednesday, but I also wanted to share it with you.
So it's 2011.
I'm not one for resolutions. I have the worst time remembering to take vitamins let alone stick to a resolution. And if anyone suggests giving up cookies, cake, or any form of confectionery, I may cry. Who am I kidding? I would cry. :)
But I do like to do one new thing each year. This year I invite you to join me in being extraordinary.
How? By continuing to write.
Each time you put pen to paper, open that word document/Scrivener to begin a new project (or think about a story/plot/main character) you are extraordinary.
Every word you write. Every revision. Each re-write. Every query sent. This makes you extraordinary.
Why are you extraordinary? Because you never give up. We write, we learn. We read, we learn. We query, we learn. Every part of this journey tests, inspires, challenges and frustrates us, but we learn.
We do what we love. And by doing what we love, we are extraordinary.
I don't know about you, but I think that's a great way to spend a year.
