…yes, Mabel, I know, I know… sum’times I’m the master of stating the bluudy obvious… so why throw that blog post header in here?… our old Chinese pal, Lao Tzu, may not have been much of a librarian, but he’s one of prob’ly hundreds of Ancients who supposedly uttered the other indisputable truism, ‘…the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’… the similarities are relevant… reaching the destination of Bestsellerville parallels much of the long-distance trudger… initial freshness lapses into boredom at times, downright ennui at others, and excruciating draginess toward the finishing line… this ol’ Jurassic’s had to learn about paceabout patience… and most importantly, about relishing the simple, small victories… as a scribbler, of course I wanna see gazillions of downloads… and sales… and readers… and reviews… and… and… and… well… yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land know what I mean… there’s also that other sneaky element… luck… it plays a part, too… but for that, I hark back to one of the best golfers of a previous era, Gary Player, who often said, ‘…the harder I WURK and practice, the luckier I get…’ …it’s the same with yer quill-scraping…. WURDS don’t usually appear by magic… plot twists and knock-’em-for-six narratives take a lot of toil… the added, constant labour for the independent, self-publishing legions these days is the ubiquitous requirement to tramp the SOSYAL NETWURK paths… no rest for the wicked, and, sorry to say, no rest for the righteous either… yeez have to do it day by day… a million-copies best-selling Author starts with just ONE copy sale… go slay ’em!… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ... oh, and show folks yer masterpieces, like this:
