Hard Work + Patience Versus Instant Gratification

Today, you can join me at the Insecure Writer's Support Group, where I'm chatting about hard work and patience, as opposed to the concept of instant gratification.

See you there!

    I am going to hop on over and check your post out now, but before I do I wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for a Liebster award! Come by the blog if you want to accept it and play along – all very informal but a nice way for me to give you a shout out since I really enjoy your blog!!

    Okay, I guess I will.

    Hey Michelle!

    Instant gratification works for me.  Oops, did you mean something else?  Yay to my dedication group reaching 1000 adoring fans on Farcebook!  🙂

    Will hop over to the IWSG site to read your post. Thanks Michelle for suggesting Janice Hardy's site for plotting tips. I have downloaded and taken printouts of loads of plotting tips from that site. Hugs.

    I love what you ladies are doing with the IWSG, Michelle– you rock!

  23. Elizabeth Mueller on May 27, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    The only kind of instant gratification I get is while I write and when the book is done. Everything is a labor of love and must be remembered as we endure the process of anything worthwhile! 😉
