Never Do Tomorrow What You Can Today

"Never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time."

We will address this issue which has plagued our country & swept across the United States. Stay tuned for the scoop on this new disaster...tomorrow.

Yes boys & girls, I'm talking procrastination.
The most dangerous yet unspoken thought any aspiring author can have is, "It can wait."
(Now I must tell you I'm guilty of this too.So we're all get the same lecture. *shamefully hanging head)
It can't wait! None of it. 'Why?' you ask?
Because that is the beauty & curse of the publishing industry. It's ever revolving.
What the agents want one day can be out in another. What if your MS ous exactly what agents want but since you put it off & never finished those revisions, the door swings & now the agents want something fresher & hotter than before. Do you know where that leaves you? Out. You'll have to sit it out until the market is right & agents are on the search for a book just like yours. So I urge you, as well as myself, to stop the procrastination & spend what time you can to achieve that you dream you have long desired.

When People Throw Bricks

"A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at them"

Have you ever heard the phrase, 'when life gives you lemons...'?
Well life isn't that nice to just give you lemons. As my quote for the week states, sometimes people throw bricks. Sometimes they aim to knock you down. Sometimes they aim to knock you out. Sometimes cruel people aim a brick at your face for no logical reason. The point is not that you're being targeted. The point is much greater. It's what to do next. We must gather our witts & newly acquired bricks then use them to build ourselves up. There is no need for a pity-party. There is no need to wallow in our strife. There are only bricks. Use them to define your character instead of breaking you down. So let them throw bricks at you. You're the one coming out stronger. I know I will be.
