Do what you can.
Want what you have.
Be who you are.
Amazingly simple, right? Not sure why those words helped me today, but they totally did. Turns out I can only do what I can (who knew?). I'm still working on wanting what I have - which includes a mostly-written MS (hey, I'm working on craft, no need to want what might be in the future, a la an agent or pub contract) and a pretty cool freelance gig (got a ton o Simon & Schuster press kits to write, yip!).
As for the third tenet, I'm always who I am these days, which is a nice perk of settling into your 30s. You know what also helped me today?
Tell me you aren't snarfing. Sigh. This is what I'm telling the next person who asks me where I get my ideas.
