In a 24-hour world like ours, with much to do and less time to do it, what does an aspiring writer, artist, entrepreneur, social media guru, mime (yup, mime) do? How do they decide on attainable goals and then proceed down the road to fulfilling them? How?
Start with the right — then the left….
…absolutely that simple: start with putting one foot in front of the other. That’s what my husband always says. Do the things you can and don’t fret over the things you can’t.
I took his advice and guess what? After working at it all day, I finally got a log line I am pleased to show off for my screenplay, Goodbye Me! I’m going to start with you:
An overworked, self-pitying young mother struggles to keep it together after her husband’s sudden illness. Her life rapidly goes from simply chaotic to a living nightmare after a deceitful new friend’s sneaky stunt forces her to fight for her freedom and her family.
Now, for the next project — the rewriting of one of my novels (oh my goodness!). But wait! One foot in front of the other… Soon I’ll be showing that off, too!
Encouragement for you and me

Congratulations Mrs. Pierce, you have just COMPLETED your novel, Quiet, with an additional 50,000 word challenge with http://nanowrimo.org online writing community. After all of the late nights of writing and pressing on tirelessly, even when you thought you wasn’t going to make it, how will you top that?
If I could, I would be going to Disney World but since that’s not on the itinerary, I’m going to my living room and relax with a good book and get geared up for my next challenge.
And your next challenge is?
To revise my novel, Atypical Woman.
Folks, you heard it here first, a good book and a new challenge sounds better than Disney World to me. DISCLAIMER: Only sounds good because I too am a writer.
A little fun from the…
