Oh all right. Here are Liz's Top Ten Won'ts for 2012:
I won't obsess over "silver stars" or other fleeting indicators of success.
I won't stress over lack of comments on the zillions of blog posts I do or when comments are unnecessarily snarky or those cool spammer ones that pretend to be real because they've figured out how to circumnavigate the Captcha Codes
I won't freak when I get rejections and hide in the corner with my thumb in my mouth until coaxed out with beer.
I won't procrastinate on blog posts (right...)
I won't let Hans the hot muse in lederhosen distract me--wait, what's that you say, beloved? Another hot soccer story? A m/m one? yummy....let me ponder *will you STOP it already?*
I won't turn on facebook or twitter until all blog posts and editing jobs are done...what do you think about the names "Kyle" and "Eli" for the players? *whoops sorry*
I won't let anything come between me and That One Contract. That is to say, I won't give up so easily this year.
I won't be intimidated by how much better and more successful other writers are at getting acceptances and writing great books.
I won't throw things when I get yet another revision order from an editor. Ooo ooo ooo I have a title: "Overtime Play".... oh poor Kyle, he loves Eli, has since they started playing on their MLS team. But in their world it can never be known. *oh crap there I go again*
and the Number thing I won't do in 2012
I won't ever forget to bring YOU what you need in terms of my Oh So Important and Very Useful Advice, Commentary and Ultra Professional Opinions each week, right here on Authors Promoting Authors!
happy new year kids.
