True North

Hi folks, I'm working through a manuscript right now and I'm feeling pleased. What a great feeling. "I meant what I said and I said what I meant..." Those words echo inside me. I encourage you this week to seek your "true north". Let that heart compass spin inside you and come to a rest in a particular direction. Then run after that direction.

Finding true north does not mean you don't have flaws. I find recognizing my flaws is a good thing. One part of the true north for me is to reveal things as they are with no attempt to shade anything one way or another. Another part is slice in a deep dose of hope. Another piece is be sure there is a laugh or two floating around in every story. I also like to create the feeling of the heart growing larger and the world growing bigger.

Seize the day.

Happy journeys on your manuscript! May your compass keep your target, and your GPS keep you grounded, and your wings keep you flying. What's the equivalent of writer's GPS? Whatever that is, may you have enough of all of it. Hugs.

Hey Faith, Thanks for the encouragement. I'm having a decent day. I think write GPS is that place inside where all things creative brew - close to our heart, our id, and our soul. Thanks for the hugs!

What a great feeling, Molly. I have a feeling that with every pass, I too, will get closer to the arrangement of words that reflects the picture in my head.
