It is so hard to concentrate and get things done at the office when your entire body feels like ‘poo’.
I’ve also felt a little discouraged because my literary magazine isn’t kicking off the way I thought it would. The reality is that I’m not doing my research and reaching out to the right places to show off my creativity. So, both yesterday and the day before, I did do some reaching out to a couple of places, mainly libraries and ‘mom and pop’ bookstores, but I haven’t yet heard back from any of them. That’s the hardest part of being a writer, having enough patience to play the waiting game.
On a more positive note, I can finally share our company logo since I finished coloring it in. I still think the pink needs to be a shade darker, but this is only the beginning.
For the rest of the week, I’ll be putting as much time and energy into finishing up our July issue. Then come July, I’ll have copies of May, June, and July’s magazine issues available for purchase.
I believe in this magazine and I want to see it succeed. If I didn’t, I would have stopped after May, but I didn’t. I continued on, creating a magazine issue for June, and now July. I’m going to keep creating them because it’s something I love to do, and one day it’ll happen. One day they will sell. Until then, persistence and patience is the key.
