Fake it til you make it…or so they say

It’s a common phrase and fairly self-explanatory.

As described in wiki:

  “Fake it till you make it”  is an English aphorism which suggests that by imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset, a person can realize those qualities in their real life.[1][2] It echoes the underlying principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as a means to enable a change in one’s behavior. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fake_it_till_you_make_it

But what does it look like?

Mon – Fri 9-5 job. 7 days a week every waking moment writing.

I’m not looking to be famous, I only want to live my dream life:

Continue to be able to met author friends, to have the freedom for more book signings, for my books to be in the big box stores, and to spend my days doing everything I love – WRITING!

Busy Bee – the writers life

You want to be a writer? This is what a writers life looks like – and this is without young kids.

 

Begin each day early. I like to social media in the mornings before the day job. Some people prefer to write a little.

Work on covers, banners, logo’s, or think of new ways to grab a readers attention.

Here is my new banner.
