There’s a lesson for all of us when it comes to the topic of adapting. If we’re not flexible and adjust to new situations, we’re likely to fail in reaching our goals. When I first started thinking about writing this new book, I imagined a young girl who would never participate in the one sport she’d always dreamed of being the very best in–downhill skiing. By the time I’d written her story, she showed me just how wrong I could be.
Along the way, I found so many examples of people who not only learned new ways to take part in their favorite sport(s), but also branched out and became stars in different ones.
This video features adaptive equipment for indoor rowing, something that helped train two people to medal in the Paralympics. Very inspiring.
As writers, we’re always encouraging each other not to give up, even when we’re up to our eyeballs in rejections. I think we can add “adjust to the changes” in this business of writing to part of our mutual support. And these days there’s one heck of a lot of that to do, isn’t there?
Although I don’t have a firm publication date from the publisher, I’m putting out the call for help with my launch in October. I’d so appreciate SPACE ON YOUR BLOG, TWEETS, FB POSTS, INSTAGRAM POSTS. If you’re up for doing a REVIEW, that works as well. Just leave a comment with your preference and I’ll be in touch.
