- Write the book your heart demands you write
Yes, I’ve got an editor who helps me put the finishing touches on everything, but my books are MY stories. I get to dream up ideas and watch them play out on paper!
- Create something special
If you can’t wait to share it with your readers, what’s the point of writing it?
- If there’s a fire within you, keep it burning
Our goals and dreams are what make us whole. If you let your passion burn out, a little piece of YOU will go with it!
- Write with your own voice
YOU are what makes your story unique. Inject a little bit of YOU into everything you write, and you’ll have no trouble making it stand out.
- Don’t wonder “what if”. Instead, make it happen
I could have sat around and pictured my life as a crime novelist, or I could have gone out and done it. I chose the latter because I wanted to LIVE my life, instead of just THINK about it.
- Never lose your courage
If you dream of doing something, don’t let fear get in the way! Courage can be a dream’s best friend.
- Don’t think about the setbacks
Instead of letting them get you down, kick them out of the way. As long as you’re passionate, you’ll be able to tackle any setback that tries to get in your way.
- Keep going
No matter what, pursue your dreams relentlessly. The only one who can give up on them is YOU.
- Struggles often end with the most rewarding triumphs
Before Dangerous came out, I struggled with fears and doubts. But you know what? It was all worth it in the end! Keep moving onward and upward, and you’ll experience the same feeling!
