I have a quote on my desk that makes me smile. I originally printed it, to give it to my girls, but it hasn’t made it off my desk.
(I do plan to get a better print and frame it for them.)
But the sentiment is so important. It’s just that daily reminder that we need to get out there and give it a shot.
“What if I fall?
Oh, my darling, what if you fly?”
So today, I say…go for it! And don’t forget to remind your friends and family too!
Christi R. Suzanne tagged me for the #777challenge. We met through an eye-opening author class at the Attic Institute with Whitney Otto in Portland. Since then, a few of us have stuck together to become great writing, critiquing, and commiserating friends.
Check out her stuff and her novel MORT ADDENDUM…you’ll never look at Kool-Aid ever the same! Follow her at @christirsuzanne.
The goal of the 777 challenge is to share seven lines from page seven of your manuscript, then tag seven more writers.
This excerpt comes from my finished novel, AMERICAN HONEY (currently looking for representation).
AMERICAN HONEY is women’s fiction weaving together a journey in two timelines about coming-of-age, leaving your past behind, and then recapturing it.
So on to the next, I challenge friends from The Writer’s Voice, Pitch to Pub and Query Kombat!
