Write Stuff Wednesday

There are lots of themes and declarations in February: President's Day, Black History, Valentine's Day - just to name a few biggies. Lots of heart awareness and health awareness goes along with February too.

But since I write with a bent for the paranormal and the romantic (and I have two career fairs coming up) I'll focus my blogging this month on LOVE - specifically as it applies to what you do and who you know.

Here's a quote from Ray Bradbury to kick things off: "Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for."

While it's truly impossible to love every single aspect of every duty within a career, you'll never be happy if you don't love anything about it.

Being an author has specific (solitary) challenges, so it's important to find joy - and yes love - in what you're writing. When you spend that much time with yourself and your story, you need to be sure it's something to live for!

Happy February!
