100th Blog Post

I want to do something a bit different with this particular post. I want to address you on a personal level.

We all have very busy lives where we are pulled in several different directions. Sometimes in the madness, we lose ourselves in who we are and our own valued worth. Whether you are a husband, wife, father, mother, sister, brother, pet owner, or have bonds or interactions with those outside your family, you matter to someone. Take that thought and expand on it. You not only matter to someone, but you have personally influenced everyone you come in contact with. Without you, someone’s life would be very different. You are important and loved.

Everyone has low points in their lives that drag them down mentally and/or physically. Sometimes it can be the situations around us or it can be a personal battle. You are worth it, so keep pushing forward.

If you have made a New Year’s resolution this year – great for you. I wish you all the best. For every day or hurdle you pass is another one to show just how strong you are. For you are strong. Believe in yourself that you can do it and you will succeed.

Most of you who follow this blog are fellow authors. Your writing is your craft. Your very first draft of your story is not going to be perfect. Practice makes perfect or, better phrased, revisions make perfect. You will get rejections if you seek out publications, but it is not the end of the world. It does not mean that your writing is horrible or that no one will like all your hard work. It just means that either you haven’t found the right fit yet or its’ not that books time. Keep pushing. All artist struggle at first, but if you want it, you will get it.

Remember that you are loved, worth it, and strong.  I wish you all the best in all you do.

Keep writing and keep learning.

Over the last decade, I have received several positive feedbacks on my stories and one college professor encouraging me to pursue a career as a writer. I have attended a few elective writing classes at IUS to help hone in on my skills. I have recently attended Kentucky Writing Workshop in Louisville, KY where I learned more hands-on experience and encouragement from other writers. I currently resides in southern Indiana with my four fur babies. Follow me on twitter at: @lrmauck
