Making a Mark

Posted by bigceebee on February 26, 2013 at 11:45 AM

You're a writer, right? Your ultimate desire (besides selling fifty million books and all the cool stuff which comes with it), is making a mark, yes? Yes...


What we must realize is that whenever anyone anywhere reacts to anything about our writing, be it about our books, blog posts, tweets, Facebook posts... Anything... We have made a mark... We have been noticed... We have struck a chord...


Good, bad, indifferent... Who cares? I did, and to be honest, still occasionally do, but, in the grand scheme of things, when something I throw out to the public affects someone, a stranger who doesn't know me from Adam, sufficiently for that person to pull out the phone, iPad, laptop or other communication device and respond, good, bad or ugly (and I've seen them all), I now realize that I've made a mark.


So, in the end, when you get a nice comment, a smile, perhaps some LOLs, a critique or #%*$& about something you wrote, take it in stride because you, as well, will have made a mark.
