Keep On Keeping On

This morning was the first morning that small puddles of water had iced over, signalling the coming of a new season. This morning also allowed me to get four more magazines written to and some more preparation done for my upcoming visits to Parkside Elementary School.


Today, I wrote to the magazines: Puritan, Bomb, 3 A.M. and Narrative. All four accept interviews and I am looking forward to hearing from them over the next couple of weeks. I am always prepared for a rejection but I am still driven to write as many as I possible can and not let that slow me down, but rather, fail forward.


I am also excited because I had a wonderful Sunday with my children! With the leaves all fallen around our home, we spent the afternoon, raking and blowing leaves away. There was a ton of laughing and my kids earn the money they made from working  hard.


I have been listening to Arnold Schwarzenegger give success speeches all morning and believe him 100% when he says, “You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” So, before I had to my paying work, that doesn’t feel like work, let me wish you a wonderful Monday and hope success is finding you today!
