Devotion

Tuesday, June 8, 2010
When I began writing my first novel, I didn't even own a computer. So, I sat in the back of the break room of my job, and at every open opportunity I got, I wrote down the whole thing. When I finished writing the whole book down on the note book, I then would drive fifteen miles every day so that I could type it out on the computer. You see, if you're like me, you are so devoted to your craft, those boundries are only minor road blocks. When you have a goal in mind, you have to tell yourself that nothing is going to stop you. You have to be devoted, and passionate about your craft. You also have to convince yourself that you are a force to be reckoned with and that nothing is going to stop you.

  1. Lauren, you have the same Power of Positive Thinking as, Sylvester Stallone, who drove cross-country to LA from Jersey in a '70's Pontiac with a screenplay he'd written long-hand on yellow legal pads while on break at his job with 7-11?

    That screenplay turned into: ROCKY.
