I thought you might want to read Steven Pressfield’s latest post, The Sphere of Self-Reinforcement, where he asks and answers the question, How we keep believing?

Believing is what keeps us putting one foot in front of the other. Pressfield calls it self-reinforcement–which is the way we keep on keeping on. There is no other way. My term is self-encouragement. When you don’t have other people encouraging you, you just have to encourage yourself.

This morning when driving grandson to school, I was listening to my iTunes radio. I realized that the music was turning my mind to my fiction work in progress, helping me center in the ‘tone’. It was helping me find belief and encouragement, and a happy place inside. I decided to play it–encourage myself– when I write.

    Keep on self-encouraging. I’m looking forward to the next book.
