A Bit of Good Fortune

I’m in a creative holding pattern as I await my writing group’s notes tomorrow night. Part of me is really excited about working on the next thing, but I want to focus on getting this first manuscript out of my hands by Labor Day. Plus, where would I find the time? We are still settling into a new routine in our new home—new state!—so I’m giving myself some slack.


In the meantime, I just rediscovered a bit of wisdom (I think) from a fortune cookie I had not too long ago. Something to think about until next week, at least . . .


We write our own destiny. We become what we do.


What are you doing to become what you want to be?
