How I know I'm doing the right thing: I may be stressed out, but I'm not miserable anymore.

As far as I'm concerned–if you write well enough–you can write about anything your little heart desires. #ChallengeExtended

Publishing truth: there are no steps along the path to publication that don't end, "and then wait a long time."

When I was a child I wanted to be a bookkeeper–it sounded so wonderful–until I realized it didn't at all mean what I thought.

When I first started writing, my priority was beauty in my prose. With experience, that changed to clarity. Now I see them as the same.

Step away from the Twitter, self. Pour all of that energy into words and scenes and imagination.

If I were to get on Twitter, which seems unlikely at this point, I would definitely follow Emy, Shannon (aka Tyler Durden), and of course Natalia.
I love these!!
I love these Tweet Treats. In response to Mandy Hubbard’s, I went to a friend’s reading for her debut novel last night during which she said she spent 11 years writing her book – plus several more for publication. 15 years in all. But she did it! Huge agent, Big 5 publisher … it just takes time and perseverance (and talent and a butt load of hard work). We miss you at Writerland, by the way, Kristan!
Glad everyone’s enjoying them! I really need to post them quarterly, because I have a LOT of tweets stored up…
I’ve missed Writerland too! Just been really busy, not commenting on as many blogs (though I’m still reading). Anyway, yay for your friend — and yay for you with the mini-memoir ebook! Looking forward to reading it. :)
I love that you quoted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s actually quite profound!
I love The Rock. And I love Rae’s quote about clarity & beauty being the same thing.
You’ve got some oldies here…thanks for including mine! ;)
P.S. Anthony, come to Twitter!!! You know you want to join us here…come to the dark side…
He IS, isn’t he?
I know, I’m so behind! I really should make this a quarterly feature.
I just followed the Rock on the twitters. Unsurprisingly, he follows no man or woman.
