How have you been? Hope all is well in your little corner of the world! I can’t believe it’s already mid-week. It’s also no coincidence, but I’ve been hearing a lot about ‘Hump Day’ (honestly I’m not being smutty, it’s a phrase denoting the middle of a work week, hence the bulk of hard work being already done). I’m sort of chuffed to say that I haven’t had a ‘Hump Day’ in ages, I love my work too much (triple whoop!).
Talking of passion, creative folk out there will get exactly where I’m coming from. What is the best feeling in the whole wide world? And, what brings it on? You know, something that makes you realise that it’s all worth it and makes you feel a million – no, a trillion dollars? I was in town earlier and bumped into a lovely girl who said she loved my book, had finished it in two days and asked when the next one was coming out? Apart from being flustered that someone recognised me (I know, I’m geeky, bite me), I was totally overwhelmed by her praise. That one single comment made my day (I’m still walking on Cloud 9).
I’ll let you in on a little secret. Creatives generally are a quirky, needy bunch. That’s needy with a capital ‘N’. (I can be whiny too, but that’s only when I haven’t had my 7am double-shot Americano, which is a rarity these days.) When our work is acknowledged or better still, praised, us creatives cannot help but be effusive with thanks (or in my case, stop functioning for a whole five minutes).
To top off an awesome day, I read about my book on the brilliant Business Boom Bolton website. I would like to say a massive thank you for featuring Screaming Snowflakes, you guys rock! You can read the full article here. Would love to hear what makes your day guys.
Ciao for now, I promise not to stay away too long!
