On Writing: What I Listen to When Writing

I first heard Brandi Carlile’s “Dreams” on Samantha Brown’s Girl Meets World series. The lyrics speak of going after your dreams–something which is very much a theme for me this week. (See my prior post for more information: http://chrispavesic.com/2014/05/18/first-novel-to-be-published-with-musa-publishing/ )

As always–I hope the music inspires you to write.

Enjoy!

First Novel to be Published with Musa Publishing

Book with Heart

Musa Publishing has accepted my manuscript. I signed the contract on Friday.

It looks like the novel will be released sometime in October of this year.

I will provide more details as they become available.

I am very happy and I want to thank everyone who has provided me support and encouragement over the years—especially my fellow authors. The people I have met through WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter have been wonderful. I am really glad that I discovered the #amwriting group; reading the posts there about both the tribulations and successes of other authors is inspirational. (And I constantly marvel at the word counts everyone strives for each day!)

In an earlier posting this month ( http://chrispavesic.com/2014/05/09/on-writing-writing-inspiration-from-other-authors/ ) I shared some advice from fellow writer Jim Butcher: “*NO ONE* can take your dream away.” I truly believe this and I hope that the readers of my blog do as well.

Perseverance is the key word of the day. Keep at it, keep writing, and do not give up.

Cheers!

Chris
