I love music, probably more then the average person. So much of it inspires my writing, lifts my moods, or even helps me through life.
This song I feel encompasses so much of who I am. Holding tight to my uniqueness, being true to me and showing people that things don’t have to be black and white or even gray.
Listening to this song I’m fist pumping, as I feel I do when I send out a new release or even when my friends do. I feel like this song even applies to that. We need to support each other, indies or not—all writers in general. We all have those moments where we need to lean on each other.
“We are all misfits living in a world on fire…”
Being an author you know, we are part of this strange world. Especially being an indie, you are in charge of so much beyond writing and revising the book. It’s hard work. And when I say strange you can find yourself awake in the middle of the night talking to yourself or a fellow author about a scene or character…like they are a real person. LOL And sometimes you find your characters in your dreams. ;)
Additionally, writing erotica puts you into another category where people feel the need to well put us into a category…no better way to put it. This is beyond the crazy filters or bans of stores. I’m talking Tweets where people feel brave to say things they normally wouldn’t face to face (I mean hurtful, and rude). I’ve even received some that have told me I am promoting porn and that it is the ruin of the world.
“...you gotta turn it up when the flames get higher.”
So run full force and attack your work before anyone else has a chance to. Pull it apart, edit it, make it crystal clean.
And know you have so many on your side. Ignore those little people, because really they are little Avi’s and profiles in a realm of so many.
Don’t look back and fist pump with me. Love you all and thanks for your support. ;)
