Good day to you, dear friend.
Although I have a slight cold today (ew), nothing can take away from my excitement.
Herein, I’m unveiling another piece of something fun that I have been planning for some time.
Make Your Story Your Own
You may be aware from some of my previous posts about “copying success” that I feel that I have been holding myself back.
Somehow, I had created a Frankenstein formula in my head of “rules” and “advice” based on success stories of others.
I had duped myself into thinking that in order to succeed, I had to put myself – my work and my ambitions – through this monstrous formula.
And I think that was 100% wrong.
That is not what those stories are supposed to do. Certainly, there will be bits that will echo into your own story. But they shouldn’t be your focus.
You won’t find the secret to your success buried in the myriad of triumph tales out there.
If those stories become your focus, and you try to piece yourself into those stories, you’ll have a very awkward and broken jigsaw in the end.
Your story is different. Your story should be all of your focus.
So, this week, I will be unveiling a new section for this blog. If you look up at the menu, you will see that I have already begun to implement this change.
I want to create all sorts of creative content, and I want to do it all now.
And so, I have created this is the brand-new section, the Library.
I love the feel of libraries: it’s where the world is quiet and imagination is loud.
Anxious to write stories again, I am going to be adding more literary works, both as webcomics and as short stories and perhaps stretching out into novellas, too.
The first of such literary works will be released on Tuesday 15th January, so remember to check back for that.
Sass will be updated again soon, but still is a little bit further into the future.
This is going to be a busy week as there is a lot I’d love to get done.
First, I have been working on the short story cover art on Twitch, and will probably finish it off tomorrow. Tune in and get a sneak preview via twitch.tv/imaroxtaar. Guess what it’s about correctly and you get free bragging rights!
Then, I have some freelance work on wedding invites to get that as wrapped up and as tidy as possible this week.
And, of course, there is the Secret Project, which is moving along in the right direction.
All of that to do, but not necessarily in that order.
What are you up to this week? Hope it’s going to be filled with goodness for you and I’ll see you back here on Tuesday.
