Expectations – we all have them. Ideas about when we’ll find THE agent who believes in our work. Or THE editor who champions our book. Or THE epic launch.
But here’s the thing…expectations almost always lead to disappointments. Things are seldom as we picture them in our minds. And when that happens we get discouraged.
Discouragement leads to … well, no place good.
So, I’ve decided to let go of my expectations about this biz. That is NOT to say I have stopped dreaming big. I haven’t.
But I am giving up trying to figure out a time frame, or who the right agent for my fiction is, or…or….or
Instead, I am focusing on writing.
Okay, that and building my platform.
But mostly writing.
I figure the better the writing, the more likely my stories will have the same success as my nonfiction.
So, who’s with me? Who’s ready to let go of expectations and just write?
