Have you seen a poem or a drawing that looked suspiciously like yours? Or what you intended to do? Bummer.

Did you ever dial the wrong number and get a old friend recognizing your voice? It happens.

Scientific break throughs happen in different parts of the world simultaneously.

It can be frustrating. Do not let a dynamite idea go to waste. Build on it. Test it. Vary its dimensions. Make it your own. Get excited over it. Sign it. Date it. Share it. Sell it. This will be the best you can do at this time. Build a history of where you have been and where you want to go.

Until you can part with it, forget trying to sell it. Would Aunt Jane like it for a gift? Originality always pays off. Exchange services with people you trade with. You know something no one else knows. You know what it takes to be a creative person!

If someone criticizes your grammar or the crooked vase, you can accept what is said. You may feel badly. You might make corrections. You can discover why you always draw a lopsided vase. We know that eye conditions effect what you do. Decide what you like and stick to your plan.

Analyze what the criticism is. Rank whether it is important. Will it be distracting to make changes? The source of the comments could come from someone very important to your work. A teacher or an editor has a greater role than a friend. Adapt when necessary and learn from it.

The free speech we cherish includes the freedom to criticize. Balance that with your expertise and do not take it as a personal attack. This a conversation you can participate in or not. Take control of your journey.

Share your unpublished poetry. Blog a different poem each day. A completed book will be published in 60 days or less. Taking the first step may be the most important part of the journey.
