I promised I was going to post three inspiraitonal quotes each day this week. Let’s get started.

1. Proscrastination is the fear of success. People proscrastinate because they’re afraid of the success they know will result if they move ahead now because success is heavy. It carries a responsibility with it. It’s just so much easier to proscrastinate and live on the “Someday I’ll …” philosophy. – Denis Waitley

2. Never pick a fight with a man who has the words “Born To Die” tattooed on his forehead.” – Dean Koontz

3. Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. – Winston Churchill

Next week, I’m going to change my blogging a little bit. School, for those of us with kids, is out. Activities abound and we could be feeling spring fever. Why write? Who cares? I’ll just be rejected. If you’re feeling this way, click on over to www.bethanderson-hotclue.com/blog/. I’ll guarantee you’ll laugh, feel better and realize you’re not alone.

As I was saying, next week I’m going to post every day three inspirational sayings to help you get into the determination zone for writing.

But for today, I’ll leave you with one to get us started.

“Proscrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they’re afraid of the success they know will result if they move ahead now because success is heavy. It carries a responsibility with it. It’s just so much easier to procrastinate and live on the “Some day I’ll …” philosophy.” – Dennis Waitley.

Have a great weekend.

What Has The Internet Changed?

January 5, 2006 | Inspiration

Something marvelous occurred to me after my Wednesday blog and reading the blog of Sherrill Quinn. She was asking how has the internet changed our lives. Well, one important way, besides major shopping from home, is you really don’t know what the racial identity is of those you’re communicating with. You also don’t know if the person you’re emailing really is a twelve year old girl and not a forty year old police office that’s gonna kick your ass, post your picture all over the country and send you to jail with others of your kind, that need a girlfriend real bad. Unless you ask, or you get hints as to the color of your friends’ skin, it really doesn’t matter. We communicate based on likes, dislikes, common afflictions (like writing) and it’s all good. es, it does take away the actual face to face interaction, but that can occur later. We even belong to one or two of the same groups. I’m looking forward to RWA’s Conference in Atlanta. Last year, I was in a workshop given by Ellora’s Cave, and I just knew , there were some brazen vixens in the room. But, I didn’t raise my hand and ask, fear that Raelene might look at me crazy had a lot to do with it to. This year, we’re gonna find each other, learn, party and shop!
