(The bad news is I'm siiiiiiiiiick. Nasty stomach bug, but I'll survive. The worst thing is that I was flying through my chapters, doing much better than usual...until now. Send healing thoughts!)Today I'm celebrating Beverly Stowe McClure, a great author and always cheerful friend, whose last IWSG post contained a very honest opinion on writing that really resonated with me because although we try, we can't control the world, only ourselves.
"I've decided not to worry whether a publisher wants my new story or not. I've done the best I can. That's all I can do. So, I get busy on another story and another, and remind myself the past is the past. I've submitted the story, no point in worrying about it. The future is uncertain, and I don't know what will happen tomorrow. All I have is today. Today, I choose to write."
~ Beverly Stowe McClure
Beverly has 11 books published and her short stories have appeared in several anthologies. Amazing! See everything she’s accomplished on the Beverly Stowe McClure Amazon Author Page.
Today I choose to write too!!
(At least as soon as I recover.)
