Last week I was talking about how to climb out of the whirling toilet-bowl of despair, and I suggested making yourself some affirmations. Personally, I found this kind of hard, since it felt a bit corny to me. But, I did come up with – and find – some. To get you started – and share some positive energy – here are some affirmations that maybe will help you, too. Enjoy.

Today is the day you succeed. No one can tell your stories better than you.
Everyday, and with every word, you become a stronger, better writer.
If it was easy, everyone would be a writer.
