Blossom where you're planted.

 
 
 
 
 
Make your writing stand out like this wild Gerber daisy flourishing among the weeds.
 
 

 
Don't allow fear of failure or success to frighten you into NOT doing it. Don't let those deadlines slither away.
 
 
 Don't think that just because your submission was rejected, it can't be resurrected. Among all the dead blossoms on this "butterfly bush" one last bloom erupted making everyone take notice.

Hubby and I discovered a wonderful, new, paved trail along the Mississippi River. I will post more pictures later, but these snapshots spoke to me as a writer. Make your writing shine. If you are not a writer, shine your light into the world another way. A smile, a kind word, eye contact with a street person, a gentle touch can make someone's day.

That snake must have writing in his pedigree. He's a long fellow.
