I’ve been surfing the web lately looking for ideas to add to my website and blog to interest readers and maybe up the stats. What I’ve found is envy. I’m envious of the easy it appears to be for other authors to blog and I wish I could be like them. I wish I could blog like them, write like them, make money like them, be as well-loved as them. I wish I could be half as good as any of them.
The Critic in my head tells me that it’s impossible. For once she is right. They are they and I am me. I am not like them. What works for them will not work for me and it’s time I see that. It’s time I accept that.
It’s time I examine my strengths and employ them. It’s time that I see that I am me. I am no one else. I need to be me!
I need to figure out what works for me. I need to be doing what I can to aid my writing career. I need to embrace me. I need to be working and writing, and letting everything else take care of itself.
