“Security does not exist in nature nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” ~ Helen Keller One of the best self-help/motivational books I ever read for stepping out in faith was If …

Redefining Failure

By Shelli Johnson | Oct 22, 2011

Thomas Edison: “I have not failed.  I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” I once spent 14 months writing over 600 pages. I thought I was done. I thought I had a novel, thought I could turn it in, thought I could work on the next thing. Then I sat down & read it. …

How Do You Define Success?

By Shelli Johnson | Oct 15, 2011

For some people, success equals money. For others, it’s fame. Maybe scoring an agent. Or a book contract. Good reviews. A New York Times bestseller. Your book optioned for a film.

A View Of My Writing Space

By Shelli Johnson | Oct 1, 2011

My writing space is my favorite room in the house. I made sure I decorated it so I loved it because I spend 8+ hours a day in it. Some of the time is writing fiction, the rest is doing my day job. If this room were a person, it’d be my best friend. Really, …

By Shelli Johnson | Sep 17, 2011

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never ~ in nothing great or small, large or petty ~ never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”~ Winston Churchill Persistence is the difference between success and failure One of …

Passion ~ Nicety Or Necessity?

By Shelli Johnson | Sep 10, 2011
