Okay, I know it’s not my usual day to blog, but I thought this was important enough to pass it along RIGHT NOW.
One of my co-workers posted this to Facebook. It’s the Ten Lies You’ll Hear Before Pursuing Your Dream. And each and every one of them — and the reasons why you shouldn’t listen to them — applies as much to writing as it does to anything else in life. Some of them are things other people will tell you when you tell them you want to be a writer … and some of them are things you’ll tell yourself.
It’s definitely worth a read. And even a bookmark.
