C stands for Confidence

Bonjour Mes Amies,

Confident vs. Yourself
             Have you ever noticed that a lot of people seem to let their low self a steam get in the way of their dreams? Just think about it, many people get discouraged when someone doesn't like something they created. Have you ever had that happen to you? I have. I like to please people, I hate conflict, and I always strive to do my best. Sometimes my best just isn't good enough. For example, I am a writer and a artist, not professional mind you. Since I am involved in both these hobbies, I always like to know what other people think of my work. The only reason I want to know what they think is because I want their constructive criticism. I want to know if my art is good or bad, if they see it the same way I do. The same goes for my writing. The best advice always comes from other people, because they can most likely pick out small mistakes that you yourself could not pick out as the creator. But don't let that small said back stop you from creating. Creativity is a very important aspect of life. If you don't take the time to harness it now, you may end up loosing it, piece by piece.

            My advice is to keep up with your dreams. Do Not and I repeat Do Not let other people tell you what you can and cannot do.Just because you want other people's advice does not mean you have to take it every time. Sometimes the advice won't help you in the slightest. So keep on painting or drawing or whatever it is you do. The only person that should hold your confidence is you. Be confident in who you are and what you do.

Updates: As of Yesterday and Today...!

  • I am working on my Nano Project. I will try my best to finish it. 
  • I am working on Chapter Six of The Light Chronicles, I will start it very soon. When I have a good place to start the chapter.
  • I am reading Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly By Gail Larson Levine. She is an awesome youth adult author and I advise anyone to check out her book if you want to write. There are a whole bunch of writing exercises that are great for any type of writer.
  • I might have come up with an idea for a short story. But that is not on the top of my list right now. 

Love Britt
