Achieving Success … a simple matter of updating Content!

For all you writers with dreams out there – frustrated by where you currently are, a few thoughts on the matter!

reading, by Penny L Howe, 2013

Did you know there’s a whole future generation of readers who will be waiting to read your written words in the near future. It’s up to you to not give up, keep writing and stay the course, doing all you can do to get your book published:

Life has interesting twists and turns to it, doesn’t it? Just about the time you think you have it figured out, it changes on you. But don’t let that stop you!

The nice thing about dreams, however, is that they’re your dreams and you can alter and adjust accordingly, as needs be, to keep them alive and hopeful in your future of days!

A few potholes in the road, I few detours will happen but a dream is a mighty thing, keep believing and dreaming … all will be achieved!

“To achieve success,
Sometimes the dreams of yesterday
need to be updated too!”

  1. I think there should be a statue of you somewhere complete with inspiring pose. I like the idea of younger people wanting to read our words. That spurs me on.

    • HI Jadi, This statue is located outside the Richland City Library (I took this shot last week). Richland is one of the three tri-cities (Kennewick,Pasco and Richland) in the Southeast section of Washington State! Feel free to use this photo if you wish. They make a wonderful statement don’t they? πŸ™‚

  2. Good evening Penny, I find this an interesting blog to read.
    Firstly I love the act of writing and editing. That I don’t get it right after all that is good as it reminds me to be vigilant when putting words down.
    To be honest I tend to write because I love doing it and when I’m finished i go on to the next thing. That someone may find my work of interest is pleasing but not the reason for writing. Though it is affirming to know others can connect with you. I’m not sure about publishing. I wrote a musical once and the effort to publish it was too overwhelming. Maybe that’s a cop out. I like your posts because they often provoke me into repsonding in one way or another. Enjoy your day.

    • There is a compelling quality to writing Michael, to stop seems inconceivable to me. But many times the words we write are expressions of our thoughts, and those thoughts can be riches to another when reading!

      And so humanity goes forth. Nothing done well is easy, not really and promoting is a (excuse the tern) real pisser, some times, but it’s part of the whole thing. I am pleased my posts provoke you … a good thing, I think! Have an excellent day in my tomorrow, my friend! πŸ™‚ xxxx

  3. I didn’t realise there was so much research involved in writing. I thought I could just write and that would be it. I could do that, but it wouldn’t be fleshed out and it wouldn’t have the background.

    I appreciate this encouraging post Penny

    • Hi Alastair, Depending on what you write this is true, my friend. If you write a total fantasy (removed entirely from this world) then you can “whole cloth” fashion your fiction, but if you use history as a backdrop or any particular topic where you need to reference information, sigh, then there is the aspect of research to consider.

      I think that’s why when a person first begins to write creatively, it is frequently recommended that they write what they know about (self, local surroundings, etc) as a point of reference! πŸ™‚

Thank you for your thoughts!
