Money affirmation

I remember early in my career waiting for some check or another that was not arriving in a timely manner, or maybe it was a possible royalty check and I didn’t know how much it would be, and I was trying to affirm it arriving before some need became too intense.  My sister, who was at the time a mortgage banker, said, "I just don’t know how you live like that."

Often, a writer’s life is financially…mmmm….unpredictable. Learning to live with that is part of the challenge of choosing this path.   Affirmations make a difference.  Don’t ask me why.  I have no idea.  But they help.  They work. At the very worst, they make us feel better.

Affirmation of the day, this one from Carolyn See’s Making a Literary Life:

Money comes to me now in expected and unexpected ways.  Write it ten times, five days in a row.
