Making It My Business

For longer than I want to admit, at least one or more of the books above have had a place on my bookshelf. Despite having good intentions for years, everything else has always been more of a priority. Until now.

I’m hoping that some of what I write this year will find a home thanks to the content and directions found in these books. I’m writing each day treating it like it’s my work because finally, after years of scribbling unfinished stories, I’m making it my business.

Thanks to everyone who left a kind message of support and celebration on my last post. Completing my first short story and getting it out by the deadline was a turning point which feels like just a beginning.

Some of you expressed an interest in reading it and asked if I might post the story. I would love to share it, but since I’ve entered it in a competition, I can’t post it here. I am grateful for your interest and hope you’ll be able to see it somewhere soon.

  1. Dear Elizabeth – yay for completion…and for its precursor sister, Commitment. It’s clear you are exercising both….hugs to you!

  2. You know that quote about commitment and action having magic to them? (I can’t bring it to mind at the moment) But anyway, yes, yes, yes!!!! Go forth and conquer!

  3. Oh..those books and your ‘intention’ are right along and in line with what I’m hoping to do with my photography. Congratulations on your short story – very exciting!!!

    And – I have to think that 90% of everything is just simply ‘showing up’!!!

    Lovely! And so right. I get that “you are there” feeling when I read your vignettes, see your pictures.
