Short and sweet wrap up to the Writer Myth series. News next week!
This is a myth that trips up so many authors: I wonder if this will ever get published. I say to you -- a myth is wrapped up in this statement. It's like this: Danger, Will Robinson: Failure is imminent! Robby the Robot is the voice in your head and it isn't good. Yes, you are worried you are going to fail. You are worried your work won't be good enough. You are worried that no one will care. You are worried that Robby is right -- for you, writing is an ultimate fail!
Every thought you think is a choice. Why not choose the upside. It's just as easy to think success is imminent. Dream you are going to succeed. Dream your work will fly. Dream that everyone who should, will care. Start listening to Jiminy Cricket from the classic Disney movie Pinocchio. Wish on stars and let dreams come true. Why not? Jiminy is right.
I've never seen any writer fail who kept trying. Keep trying friends. See you next week with more good stuff.

When your heart is in your dream no request is too extreme. Jiminy Cricket
