Most weeks I float into Monday without too much resistance but this week is something else. I’m coming off a very nice three day weekend.


Do you ever have one of those weeks you just can’t get excited to face?


What is that they say about success? Hm, I can’t remember the quote, but I do remember that it’s about persistence more than anything. I’ve read many articles about writers who submitted their work to lists of agents and editors before someone finally believed in them. Of course those authors became best sellers or their stories wouldn’t have been written.


And then there are the writers who spend ten years perfecting their manuscripts. Wow! I can’t imagine how they kept working on one story for that long without writing in a final scene where all the characters explode.


I wonder if these writers ever woke up on a Monday and wanted to crawl back under the cozy sheets? I think they did, they just didn’t!


Thanks for listening to me ramble. I don’t know if you feel more motivated, but I’m getting there. I’m off to finish a proposal. What do you have for this week?


Added note: After writing this blog post, I went outside to see my boys off to school. When I came back into the kitchen, the cat was drinking my coffee. YUCK! Not a good start to the morning!
