Now that we are settled into the train to publication let's play that traveling game, "I'm going on a journey and this is what I'm taking." It's supposed to be alphabetical, where everyone goes round in a circle taking something on the journey with the next letter of the alphabet, but I'm changing the rules because I'm one person playing alone hoping you will join me if you can. And the word alphabet stresses me out ever since April.
So here goes! I am going on a journey to publication, and this is what I am taking---
imagination persistence time dedication procrastination frustration hard work
pens and paper books!
quick and easy meals long walks naps
commitment determination the internet a positive attitude
and don't forget those unwelcome passengers on my journey--
depression disappointment discouragement despair doubt disillusion
Who are these people, and why do all their names begin with D? They must all be from the same family. They should be banned from the train. They make the journey so unpleasant, driving others away with their misery. Go away D- people!
Let's play! What will you bring along on your publication journey?
