See that word, in the picture's middle? I have it on display, just skinny wooden letters, in my living room.
The reason is simple.
Those four letters stir thought and intention. They make me consider what I want to have accomplished in FIVE. In the next
FIVE MINUTES? To have read to my daughter(s), or cheered a friend, paid a bill, or nourished myself with a favorite snack. You get the idea.
FIVE MONTHS? I want to have grown in my writing, to be querying agents with one novel, writing on the next. No wasted time.
FIVE YEARS? Movement down the path of novel publication. I want to see it happening. No wasted time, no wasted effort, no wasted talent.
Tell me... If you sat in my brown wingback, saw that word, what would you think?
What are your FIVE?
