CARE and COMPLETE
What do you CARE about? Do you put enough CAREful thought in the words you say? The words you write?
I've found that the internet has mad it so easy to blurt out things. Why? I think it's because most of the time, you never have to worry about coming face to face with the general public. So who CARES if you say something that not really you.
The things you write may be easier because no one sees you, who you really are.
But, I have resigned myself to really CARE about the things I write. To be true to myself and write the things I believe in. I hope to awaken something fresh and new not only in my own heart, but in the hearts and minds of everyone who reads my books. my blog posts. My thoughts.
I'm tired of writing to fit in with the crowd, to gain more followers, to look "big."
I want to CARE about how and why I write and hope that i can make a difference in the life of those who read my words.
For Pixar #8, I'm choosing the word COMPLETE. Yikes, I preaching a choir here! Finish your story, even if it's not perfect. You've got to wrap it and get to a place where you can put a fork in me I'm done. Once it's COMPLETE, then you can go back and revise and edit.
There's nothing like finishing something, especially a book! The feeling is incomparable, really. I have so many started novels, and quite a few finished. But those inCOMPLETE ones stare at me like, "Hey you! I'm still laying here, needing the perfect ending."
So today, beautiful guys and dolls, I put out a plea, a call to action. CARE about what you write and COMPLETE the things you start.
Are you with me?
I have four fabulous friends who are also participating in the Pixar Challenge. Don't forget to visit their blog and see what they have to say about #8:)
