This Roller Coaster Called Writing


Yep. A giant roller coaster with highs and lows and twisty turns. It’s enough to make you queasy.

Last week I was riding the high—my inbox filled with awesomeness. This week it’s been straight downhill—a couple not so awesome emails. I know it’s all part of the process so I celebrate the little successes and have a minor pity party for the little upsets. Not much more I can do except put my butt back in the seat and hold on for dear life. I’ll keep writing and working and learning as the roller coaster tries to throw me off balance.

I’m glad I have some good writer friends to ride this crazy roller coaster with. Hold on tight, I think I see a loop-de-loop up ahead!

    There’s a quote I love that says “a published author is an aspiring writer who didn’t quit.”

    It’s just a matter of time! 🙂
