February 22nd, 2019: Lay them Bricks. Keep going.

Good Morning, World 🙂

How are you?

Listen, I know it’s easy to feel discouraged sometimes.

There are so many things that you could be doing that it’s not always apparent what you should be doing. Our days only have so many minutes, how can we make the most of them? How can we drain every last drop of potential out of our time, and create something worthwhile?

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying to make the most of my time that I squander it. Procrastination creeps in, along with it’s old buddy, self-doubt, and nothing gets done. Fuck all squared.

But listen.

We’re going to be ok.

Because even if beginning your work in this moment feels unbearable, the next one might be easier.

Think of why you’re even bothering to sit down at the keyboard today. Something matters to you, right?

At the very least, you’re trying to avoid having something happen. What personal Hell are you securing yourself again?

Feeling discouraged sucks, but you can always find the strength to keep going. You’re building something, and brick-laying is hard work.

Lay them bricks.

Keep going.

Book News

Ok. Ok, ok. Here’s the revised version.

I’m going to begin serializing “Warmth” A Paranormal Romance Novella” on Wattpad.

I’m going to upload “Warmth” on Book Funnel. I considered doing draft2digital and prolific works, but I’ve done some research that makes me think Book Funnel would be the better choice. Blah blah blah, insert boring writing business yammering here.

Anyway, you guys are great.

I gotta get out of here.

Appreciate your moments and get some shit done. Happy Friday, everyone.

xoxo Liv

  1. Hello, Liv,
    I’m pretty sure everyone feels discouraged sometimes, and I think it’s because we all have so much on our plates it just sometimes becomes overwhelming. I worked for someone once who said when that happens, get a bigger plate! Well, I can tell you that doesn’t always work. That’s a little bit like when my wife would say she needed a bigger purse. I told her she didn’t need a bigger purse, she needed less stuff! Needless to say, that didn’t go over very well.

    Anyway, we all know our world today is a crazy place. That being said, Liv, I know both you and I fit in quite nicely! We can prioritize, make lists, and do whatever else we think would help but we’ll still always have too much to do. So the days when we get discouraged may be the perfect days to do nothing! It’s our way of saying “to hell with it all, let happen what may”. And I think it’s OK to do that now and then. It’s a way to reset our minds and regroup, so to speak. And that’s how we find the strength to keep going.

    Just an opinion from an old guy who’s been through hell and back more times than I want to remember.

    Good luck with serializing “Warmth”. I’m not a writer, so I’m guessing this would mean it was being posted on Wattpad in installments. If I’m right, that’s a good idea because a certain amount of people wouldn’t have or take the time to sit down and read a book but they would follow it in segments. Sounds great, and good luck with that.

    I hope your day goes well.

    1. It’s always good to hear from you, Bill! 🙂 I’m glad you’re a tough ol’ bird, hahaha. How’ve you been? My day’s going just fine, just trying to wrap up some chores and rack up some words. The usual. I hope your day is also going well! 🙂

      1. Well, yeah, I can be a “tough ol’ bird” when I need to be but my experiences have not made me bitter but have given me character.

        I’m doing OK. I decided not to do any chores today. Just mellowing out. The chores will wait and I don’t let them go too long, so that’s OK.

        Have a great day,
        Bill
