To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
~ Reba McEntire
This is so true for writing.
First, we have to wish the dream.
Then, we have to work and work and work and work.
Work and work and work and work . . .
. . . which means, we need to have a good sense of humor and a lot of comic relief along the way.
Only the ones who are willing to hang on tight and to shrug off the inevitable criticism and rejections along the way will make it to the dream.
Wish. Work. Laugh.
How is your funny bone holding up these days?
