It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.
Here’s my take: “The big secret in writing is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you work your arse off.”
And it’s true. You can.
Sure, in the “working” period there’s little recognition, few pats on the back, zero minutes of fame, moments of self-doubt, zero minutes in the limelight, etc.
And yes, the working period can (and most likely will) go on for a long time. Weeks, months, years, decades.
And all of that can feel like crap once in a while.
But (and here’s the hard part), too bad.
If you want it (you know, the big IT), you must do the work.
So go…work your arse off this week. Let nothing deter you.
