I’ve been working on my memoir “Baby, You Have To Go Beyond The Block: Advice My Mother Gave Me While Growing Up” since January 2020. There were times I had to put it aside and just take a break. Then there were times I didn’t know what to do next in the writing process. But, through it all I kept believing that I would write and book.
I often reread books that have inspired me. One such book is Dr. Frederick Eikerenkoetter “Science Of Living Study Guide” in his chapter “Four Steps To Get What You Want” here is one of his steps:
“Belief is mental acceptance. When you believe something, you mentally accept it for yourself. In order to accomplish your goals and achieve your good purposes, you have to believe, you have to mentally accept what you want. Do not be discouraged by those around you who tell you that you cannot accomplish your goals. Remember that the world is full of wonders that people said couldn’t be done. Believe in the Infinite Goodness, the Infinite Power of God in you. When you believe, you can achieve any and every goal you set for yourself. When you believe in yourself you become UNSTOPPABLE.”
These words have been my motivation. I keep moving forward in my quest to be a published author. I see my memoir as a teaching manual. I’ve got beg dreams for myself and I won’t edit them down just because I’m a bit exhausted.
What motivates you as a writer?
