The Tale of the Birds' Nest
Feeling magnanimous, my aunt allowed the nest construction. She soon regretted her generosity when the "deposits" began.
The following year, they discouraged the birds from selecting their house. Ah, but the future parents persisted. Only diligent effort on my family's part kept them away.
Negative thoughts are a whole lot like those birds. They land on our heads and try to set up housekeeping.
"Traditional publication is almost impossible." Let me get my broom and sweep that thought away.
"There are so many great writers out there. What chance do I have?" Get out the craft books, study the blogs, and write, write, write.
How do you keep a positive attitude in a tough publishing climate?
