EMBRACE THE SUCK

May 05, 2010  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: The Craft   1 Comment

I’m the eternal optimist. Watch as I turn a blog post about SUCK into a positive message!

I’ve surpassed my reading of woe-is-me on blog/Twitter/Facebook for the year, and it’s only May. I’ll blame the economy.

But I digress.

Tell me about the mistakes you’ve made, and not what you’ll do differently, but what you are doing differently.

Tell me something you’ve learned that’s helping you in your quest for publishing.

Tell me about your work in progress.

Tell me the joy you feel in writing.

Tell me about the cool book you’ve just read.

Tell me about your confidence in your ability to make magic with words.

Tell me about your literary heartbeat.

Don’t tell me you suck. I already know you suck. We all suck in our own little way. All of us, some more than others, certainly, but no one is immune to the suck.

Tell me a story.

Then, show me you’re a writer.

    You’re onto something here… I like it.

    I love the way words that are strung together in the right order can reach into a persons chest and cause their heart to flip-flop like the rush of that first glance. I love the way words take on a life of their own … tackling stubborn, murderously toxic thought patterns and simply opening a window to allow light & life to move in and restore.

    Aaaah. I could go on. Thank you for this. Really.
