Insecure Writers: Try, Try, Try, Then Succeed!

THANKS MR. NINJA ALEX


This post comes with a warning. It has Lady GaGa being. . .well, being Lady GaGa. However, I love her song and it speaks to everyone.

When she says, "Thanks for believing in me." I think, "No. You should thank yourself for that."

And that's exactly what everyone should do--I'm working on it, okay?--We must believe in ourselves or others will not. We must always TRY. TRY. TRY.

Here's my Insecure Writers' contribution for August. I'm not here. I scheduled this last month. I'm off TRYING. I hope you enjoy and I'll be around to everyone once I return.

  1. This is one of the hardest things for me, but I'm trying too! Great post for the IWSG. Hope you are enjoying yourself and see you when you get back. :)

  2. Absolutely right - we have to believe in ourselves first.

  3. Oh my goodness gracious, n'stuff! Scrolls down past the part where all those nifty neato folks have linked into this Blog Hippety Hop, or whatever it is, to comment. One moment, please. Yeeesh...scroll back up to read the posting and then scroll back down. While waiting, imagine the theme music to "Jeopardy"............

    All we here is Lady GaGa, Lady GooGoo. Try not to try too hard. Relax and let the inspiration flow, Lee.

    Once again, I'm in tears here. Thank you so much for the "IWSG" aka "I Was Seeking Gary." I must be dreaming. Somebody pinch me.

    Yep, your starstruckest fan,

    Gary

  4. Great and inspiring advice. We must believe in ourselves. Some days are harder than others, but I don't give up, so I must believe.

  5. That's so true! It can be hard when you keep trying and nothing seems to be working, but we must believe in ourselves and keep trying until we succeed. :)

  11. We have to believe in ourselves. Without our belief, what are we?

  14. I've never really been a fan of Lady G's music, but I love her as a person and artist. First time I saw her on an interview I just wanted to hug her. She's outstanding.
    And WTG Lee for getting out there and trying!! That's all we can do, right?? *highfive*

  15. There is not try, only do!

    LOL. You knew it was coming. My version of "try" is to set a goal and a means of accountability.

    Way to take a break from blogging for work! We all have to step back from our friendlies and focus at times, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yup. We gotta just keep at it! :)

  17. So true. No one will believe in us unless we believe in ourselves. Just wish it was easier!!! :)

  18. Ah yes, a writer's worst critic is herself. We MUST believe in ourselves to keep going through all the ups and downs of writing.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Believing in yourself, what a concept. Easier said than done, but it IS important to TRY, TRY, TRY.

    ReplyDelete
  20. How cool that you planned ahead! Lady Gaga is definitely a talented lady.

  21. I'm sure that all of your "trying" will pay off. Hope you've gotten closer to accomplishing your goal. Lady Gaga is a great motivator!

  28. This reminds me of the saying: Your brain can be your own best friend or your own worst enemy.
    Think positively! Never stop trying!

  32. "I'm not here. I'm off trying." Great line, Lee! Ok, now I'll sign off so I can try too :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's easy to encourage others, but when it comes to myself, not so much! I think it's a writing thing. I hope not though.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Try, try, try. Never give up! I hope your 'trying' becomes 'accomplished!' Great post :)

  35. A great sentiment here. I try every day to believe a little but more in myself.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
