Wild Woman of Queens: Notes on Urban Creativity from across the East River.

Wild Woman of Queens: Notes on Urban Creativity from across the East River.

Writing World Domination

Writing is a funny thing. It makes you doubt yourself. There is no instantaneous pat on the back when you've turned a brilliant phrase. You could blog yourself blue and no one responds. A dancing performs a dance and there is applause or a hiss from the audience. If your book doesn't see it stands to reason your writing may suck. Or, not. Who knows? When no one lets you know.
World domination is something I aspire to achieving. No not the whole globe type of domination but my own world. We all inhabit a bit of space. What do we do with it?

I propose you dominate at least one part of it. How about writing? Create a Writing World Domination plan for 2009. It could look something like this.

In 2009 I will earn 50% of my income from my writing. I will achieve this through crafting wonderful articles, blogs posts, and ebooks that will inspire people to hire me to write wonderful articles, blogs posts and ebooks for them.

Or,

In 2009 I will dominate my piece of the world by completing the novel that has sat in my desk drawer for ten years collecting dust and putting a drag on my psyche all these years. I will free myself of useless and unispiring dreams and pursue ones that rock my world.

Take a chance on world domination.

Wow! Thank you! Honestly, I love the internet for having writers like yourself that sit down and take time to educate, and mentor us into preparing us through the right way to succeed in life. Whether you think that this helps or not, I just want you to know that it most definitely makes a huge impact and a difference for someone like myself. I'm taking my time to write this because I don't want you to go feeling un-noticed! You have most definitely been recognized and you should know that this has surely helped me along my way! Thank you once again, really..
Have a great day!
