Good morning you beautiful guys and dolls! As you can see, I am combining 2 challenges, the A to Z challenge and the Pixar blogging challenge. I hope you don't mind, but I have tried to combine them in a way so they just mesh together:)
Letter B is for BELIEVE
This could go in so many directions.
BELIEVE in yourself. You have talent. You have skill. BELIEVE in your abilities and techniques.
BELIEVE in what you do. Have some passion and desire and be confident that what you do is worth doing.
BELIEVE in your faith. Don't back down. Don't be embarrassed. Hold on to it.
BELIEVE in the end result of what you do. Why do you write? Teach? Paint? Sing? Whatever you do, you must BELIEVE that your final goal is worth the trouble, time, and tears you pour into what you are doing. There is an end. Why are you you pressing in that direction? BELIEVE.
Pixar Challenge day 7 is also about the end. The end of your story. Write your ending before the middle. In your story, think about the end result? What is you want your MC to learn, to discover, to make? Think bout that ending and BELIEVE in your MC enough to know they are going to make it to the end. They are going to overcome such a great obstacle, the ending of their story will be fabulous.
Writing the end first will also excite you as the writer, to create a great middle. Why? Because you BELIEVE in your story enough to have that great ending and to keep the fire lit from beginning to end. Fabulous beginnings are sometimes easy because you have an awesome idea to start with. Ending can be a bit tougher because you want to end with bang, but you also need it to be complete and satisfying. So, if you have an ending that is amazing, right from the start, then you have a goal to work for. something to BELIEVE in while writing the middle that sometimes slows or sags.
So today, my friends, I want you to take a marker and a few index cards and write the word BELIEVE. Tape the cards in various places where you will be reminded today, this week, this month, to BELIEVE.
Thanks for visiting! What is it you believe in today?
