What I Learned in 2010
Can you believe how fast 2010 zoomed by? And now we're over a week into 2011. Before June hits, I thought I'd share a few things I learned from ole' 2010.
Openings Aren't Really Meant to Be Melodramatic
Yes, it's good to have a dramatic opening. But, mine tend to be melodramatic or over-dramatic. Time to tone it down.
Faith in yourself and what you're doing is important, bottom line. If you don't have it, you can't get to where you want to be.
Choose a Path and Stick With It
This is a hard one for me because I am an idea person. I have ideas for everything. But, they all can't be done at once. Truth be told, I'll probably only accomplish one or two of my original ideas in my lifetime. Writing is about branding yourself and you can't brand in seven different directions.
Be Positive No Matter What
I tend to be an upbeat person. I'm happy with life. I'm happy no matter who wins. And many times people don't appreciate or they question my perkiness. It used to bother me. I felt like an outcast. No more.
We Need Another Star Trek or Stargate spin-off
I hesitate to say this because I really didn't like Stargate: Universe. But, there is nothing on TV and I'm starting to become amused by some of the shows on Nickelodeon. Yes, that scares me.
Which leads to my next lesson . . .
June 29, 2012 is Still TOO FAR AWAY
Don't know what happens on this day? I'll give you a hint. A certain sequel hits the theaters.
I Have an Awesome Critique Group
I don't know where I'd be if I wasn't with the Sassy Sisters.
