Putting it out there

The time has come to procrastinate no longer. The stars are in alignment (or so the delightfully named Shelly von Strunkel told me on the radio). I want my want and I'm gonna go out and get it. Even Wishcasting this week is pointing me in the right direction! Jamie asks: What do you wish to enjoy? Why everything about life and that includes how I earn a living!

I am a writer. I accept this now. I want to write more. I need to write more. I have been earning my living from writing. I need more clients. I must build my business. I want to pull that book out of me (kicking and screaming if necessary).

The most important thing to remember though is that this is what I know I will enjoy. It's my passion. Whatever I decide to do, I must hold onto that emotion and never let it become a chore.

So, here's what I'm going to do next.

1. Update my business website with all the things I've done and can do.
2. Tell people about myself - turn myself into a mini 'celebrity'. Become known in the right circles. Market, market, market.

[Back you demons. I can hear you saying "you can't write that. You're not good enough. Who would be interested in you anyway?" Go away. I'm not listening. I'm talking to the Universe, so kindly don't interrupt]

Sorry, where was I? Oh yes, getting my name out there. Well, just wondering if anyone would like me to do a guest post for them on their blog? I'd also be interested in finding other blogs and sites that look for guest writers, so if you know of any, please do share!

Eek, I asked! I am prepared for a deathly silence, but if you don't ask you don't get. No charge or catch for this - just a hint of what to write about.

I hope you're listening Universe!

You can contact me via my email link in my profile page or just leave a message in comments.

Art Every Day - Day 3. Some playing in Photoshop today. I went to a posh garden centre last week and took a stack of photos of all the lovely things they had on display. I couldn't afford to buy them, but anyway, how much more fun it can be to play artistically with their images! Expect to see a few more...

And why a picture of pots today? Planting idea seeds my friends. I wonder what will grow?


  1. Two thumbs up - I love your post! :)

  2. I love your positive energy. If you believe you can do it...I have always believed that...GO for it! I am looking forward to seeing some great writing here!
    ps - You can guest post for me anytime. xxoo

  3. I'm listening!

    As you wish for yourself I so lovingly wish this for you also.

    Oh and I'm ready to order the book to be delivered to Australia.

  4. Great the pic too. ;-)

  5. Ask and you shall receive, as the quote goes. I hope you are contacted by a world-famous blog with a gazillion readers! You can guest post for me anytime also, but I think you want more than my 132 followers. Not that I don't love each and every one of them...

    Good job taking the first step to getting what you want!

    Your "deathly silence" comment made me laugh out loud. Haha I can relate, I'm always worried about how something I say will be received. And deathly silence is the worst! At least for me anyway...

    Good luck! You deserve it!

  6. You go lady--if you believe it, then there's no way that it can't happen--and promote the heck out of yourself--that's the only way that you'll be found!

  7. hi lisa! yes, you can do it! i love that you put it out there in the universe. i'm a believer in thought, word, and deed.

    you can guest write for me anytime! your stories would fit perfectly with my artwork! xoxo

  8. I have commented many times that I think you should write a book! I am so happy that you are pursuing this along with other writing avenues. I can see you doing a fictional folklore kind of children's book. Your fantasy stories are terrific. I can also see you writing a mystery novel. Really, I think you can write just about anything. I have an idea for a post that I would love you to guest write for me. I'm not ready with it but in about a month I will be. I'll contact you about it in a few weeks. I warn you though, it is going to be tricky.

    You are now going to be busier than ever for putting this out to the universe but I think a lot of wonderful things will be coming your way.

  9. I love your post. Putting it out there. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

  10. As you wish so I wish for you!

  11. Yes, you will have it because you have spoken it into being. Good luck and best wishes.

  12. You go girl!!! You're welcome to write on my blog anytime...not that it's going be any big help...and provided it's not anything that will get me arrested...I already enjoy your witty and pointed comments immensely.

    ...No that's not me in the clench of passion...I'm the one in the comfy chair.

    And finally although I have never had any leanings that direction...I think I'm in love with Lola.

    Own the dream!

  13. Putting out there is the best way to move forward. As you wish, so I wish for you.

  14. Your post is an inspiration! So positive and proactive! Love it!

    As Lisa wishes for herself, so do I wish for her also! Go get 'em!

  15. Go for it girl! You can write! You have the wonderful ability to create images in the readers mind with your words. You have a fantastic imagination and your love of language just jumps out of your writing. Stop hanging about listening to doubting Thomasina and get yourself out CAN do it!!

    Ro xx

    How about using NanoWriMo for pulling that novel out of you? It's only day three, so you have plenty of time to catch up! It's a wonderful tool - especially for putting the gag into those inner demons and or critics ;-)
