A Trip or Journey

A Trip or Journey

Two points I’d like to get across in my message today.  Very simple.  When was the last time you needed to go to the store across town (many miles) from you and did not get into the car or some kind of transportation?  Assuming that you do not walk everywhere then that is the point, if you don’t get into some mode of transportation you will never get there.

So a trip or journey begins with somehow and someway employing a means to get there for without that there would be no trip or journey.

Now if everyone started this journey at the same time, which one will get there first?  Naturally the one who puts the most effort, makes the most strides and drives longest and hardest and fastest.

Do you know how many novels are being written right now as we speak?  Thousands.  Which one will get published and printed, only those that are completed even have a chance and if you are not writing then start.  Starting is the most important part of the trip; however is you do not continue the trip then that is the most important part of the trip; however if you do not finish then that is the most important part of the trip.  Wait; do you see what I just said?  It is all important parts and which part is the most important?  It is the part you are doing right now (or not doing now)!

Let’s get started, let’s continue and let’s finish and we can all do this together.  I have several writers in various stages of writing that I work with and I learn a heck of a lot from each of them and from their feedback I’ve also helped them and I call that a win – win and we both are takers and both are givers to our relationship.

That last sentence finished with:

A.    We both are takers and both are givers to our relationship.

Which sounds better?

B.     We are both takers and are both givers in our relationship.

Or

C.     We are takers and are givers, both of us to our relationship.

Let me know which you think sounds better.  I look forward to hearing from each of you about this and also about your projects and we can help each other.

 

I would love to help you, Dear Writers; at the same time you will be helping me be a better coach and editor.

We are both takers and are both givers in our relationship.
