006E – More Joy

I recently listened to a keynote address by Ray Bradbury given in 2001 at The Sixth Annual Writer's Symposium by the Sea at Point Loma Nazarene University. In his presentation, Ray says that writing shouldn't feel like work, he wants people to envy him his joy. Writing should be fun!

That really got me thinking about how I can emulate Ray's joy. For one thing, I can focus on the things that worked out instead of the things that didn't. I can focus on the great reviews my books have received instead of the number of books I sold. I can focus on how much fun I think my stories are and what a great time I have writing them instead of being worried that other people don't like them.

If there's anything I wish for you in the next year, it's more joy! 😀
