Do you have a motto, model that acts as your impetus?

Thanks to all who left comments on my blog yesterday. I do appreciate it. Although it sounded like I was going postal, I actually am well grounded and know that these things happen. I also believe the adage that good/bad things come in 'threes'. Well wouldn't you know, I received my third yesterday.

"I have not received your requested article, yet."

I sent it weeks ago. It must have wings; it's floating in cyberspace.

Life is a roller coaster ride, and now after three plunges I am on the upswing. I have learned that I won at Michael's blog, The Year of Writing Dangerously

I expect two great writer-related things to happen to me in the very near future.

In school I work on A-B-C's and my classroom motto is, Never say, I Can't. Always say, I can try!

In my writing I work on C-B-A's. My model for success is Conceive, Believe, Achieve!

I don't consciously call it a motto, but I try my best to "write what I know" - and then, make up the rest!

I can't think ofone right now - other then how you handle life is a choice. I like yours. Sandie

Besides BIC (Butt in Chair--which I'm not doing lately), I like Guy de Maupassant's quote, "Get black on white."

Hi JFC,
As you well know, I do write from the heart, but you made me laugh with rest of your response. Thanks for stopping by.

Sandie,
Life IS all about choices and also priorities.

Sioux,
BIC, I have to remember that one, and I do like the quote, because an idea does not write itself.

Congrats on your win.

The only poster I remember from high school hung on the wall of creative writing class. It said, "If you wish to be a writer, write." I still have to remind myself of those simple words.
