How’s it going? Today is June 1st–awesome. I really enjoy blogging on the first and last days of the month (for some reason–I forgot to mention that yesterday).
Let’s get to it.
June is an interesting month because it’s almost halfway through the year (because of the 6 it has), but not really (because July 1st would be closer to having the year be half over, wouldn’t you say?)
That got me thinking (and so did a free group coaching call I had today, too, but that’s the subject of another couple posts).
A new month is a chance for new plans, continuing old ones, and what-have-ya. Being able to look back (ideally more than once a month of course) and correct where we’re going off track is a beautiful thing.
Sometimes we can’t do that. That’s part of why I became a fiction writer–to make up most (if not all) the rules, and give my characters a do-over, or meaningful change in their lives (depending on the ending, of course). And to entertain my readers.
An important part, for me, of being a copywriter is doing the same for real people–to show them products and services that can make their corner of the world a better place to be.
That’s why problems, real or fictional, is where most good stories and transformations start. You can’t have beauty without the beast, so to speak. It’s that push-pull that makes things exciting for readers (and frustrating for prospects dealing with pain or something else in their lives that they want to be gone).
Anyway, that’s how I think of new months, problems, and the day-to-day jaunt of this roller coaster we call life, to an extent. It’s something I need to get deeper into, no question about it.
We all have to start somewhere…even if that means starting over.
Tomorrow is Triple F. Be sure to stop by.
Until next time,
