What Motivates You?

I just read an excellent post at the Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood blog. Check out “There Is No Try,” then be prepared to get your game on.

The post made me wonder, what words of wisdom motivate you? I have several:

A dear friend in college gave me some of the best advice ever: “Sit down, shut up and do it.”
Also, I’ve told my nieces many times (especially the one who pouts if she doesn’t win) that you can’t win if you don’t play.

Let’s motivate each other. Do you have game? Are you a Jedi Master?

The Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood Blog

Sorry I’ve been absent for awhile! I’ve experienced writer-crisis cum husband-employment-no-cash-crisis this past month and it’s had me down. Still does, but I will try to get off my *** and communicate better anyhow. That said:

The “How I Finaled or How I Found My Voice” blog is excellent, but I recommend a visit to this site in any case, folks. The Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood is a group of women who found themselves nominated for awards by the Romance Writers of America awards system. These ladies had so much fun together, they’ve formed this blog. Guest blogger for this article was Jeannie Lin, author of Butterfly Swords and winner of last year’s Rita award. The blog has given me more reading material and much to think about.
