Writing Lessons at Walt Disney

I apologize for my absence from the blog. But I've got a really good excuse. Seriously. I do.
I was at Disney World!
I got to meet the pals from Pooh Corner!

And I screamed down the Splash Mountain. Go ahead, make fun of the poncho. I don't care =)

At the haunted mansion I learned the deadly hazards of writer's block.

The park had signs boasting words of wisdom from Mr. Walt Disney himself. And I agree with him whole heartedly. If I don't give myself a deadline, I never get anything done with my writing or skating. But sometimes I forget how important deadlines are, so it was nice to be reminded on my vacation.

This quote from Mr. Walt Disney made me feel so much better about being on the twelfth draft of my novel!

Sarcastically Delicious and Me on the It's A Small World ride.
The writing community and publishing industry may sometimes seem daunting, unfathomable, and so vast. But, it's really all about perspective. You can embrace the journey, stay optimistic, and power through or remain permanently rooted where you are with that deer-in-the-headlights look.
