Install New Confidence Software


Install “Confidence” Software Now

“Install New Confidence Software” by Joan Y. Edwards

When computers were first able to send emails and get return emails in minutes, they hooked me right away. Computers fascinated me. I took a class to learn to program a computer. Oh my goodness! It took about 10 pages of programming to get the computer to add 1 plus 1 = 2. 

Computers enabled me to communicate with people far and wide. That was fun. I enjoyed teaching my students how to use a computer. There have been many times in my life when I lacked the confidence I needed to do something that seemed to hold a “fear” or a”don’t be ridiculous, you could never do that” voice in my head. I needed more confidence.

There are many times in my life when I needed more confidence. I wish I could just download it and install it that would install new confidence in me. I’ll bet you’ve wish the same thing. I’m here to tell you that there is an app to download to your heart that will fill you with confidence. It’s called “Love Yourself as God Loves You.”

Love yourself as God loves you.

Here are definitions to ponder: download means to transfer (software, data, character sets, etc.) from a distant to a nearby computer, from a larger to a smaller computer, or from a computer to a peripheral device…say from God faraway to you, wherever you are.

Install according to Merriam Webster means to set up for use or service. That’s definitely what I want to do. I want the confidence set up to serve me to use for my benefit and the benefit of others that I meet on my path in life.

Notice the word “Soft” in software. Soft like a pillow, like a cotton ball, like a balloon filled with air, like a velour towel, like a baby’s skin.

The “ware” in software means an immaterial asset or benefit, such as a service or personal accomplishment, regarded as an article of commerce. So software from God will enable me to perform a service and to carry out personal goals. 
Once you download this software  into your psyche, your subconscious mind, it starts working. Just press the Belief power button. Good luck. (When you press here, it takes you to Gospel devotionals I wrote that may help give your more confidence and faith in yourself.)

I haven’t done a new post in a while. I worked on my taxes. I efiled them with Turbo Ta for Home and Small Business on April 18, 2017 about 3:30 p.m. EDT. I am thankful that I was able to get the taxes done on time. I loved using that software.

I promised myself that I would begin anew on the illustrations for Larry the Terrifying Turkey after I submitted my taxes. When I get the illustrations near the final draft, I might share with you. I’m shy about sharing my drawings and paintings. So I may do a few blog posts about illustrating and drawing.

Thanks for reading my blog. If you have any subjects, you’d like for me to write about, let me know.

For the Giveaway there were two people who left a comment between April 25, 2017 and Midnight May 2, 2017. Therefore, I am going to give both of them a free critique of 1,000 words. Thank you, Linda Andersen and Kathleen Burkinshaw. You are the winners of a free critique of 1,000 words.

Reblog: Don’t Do for Others What They Can Do for Themselves: North Shore Care Supply


Reblog: “Don’t Do for Others What They Can Do for Themselves” by Joan Y. Edwards – North Shore Care Supply Blog

A couple of weeks ago, Adam Greenberg, owner/President of North Shore Care Products asked me on LinkedIn if I would be a guest on their blog. Thank you, Adam.

Wow! What an honor! I hope you’ll stop by! Feel free to email Adam at info@northshorecare.com and let him know you liked it.

http://www.northshorecare.com/blog/dont-do-it-for-them-help-them/

Here’s the beginning paragraph.

Many times in life you see others struggling to accomplish something. You are tempted to do it for them. That shows your compassion. You can do it easier than they can. It’ll be a more-perfect job. However, don’t do for others what they can do for themselves. Show respect for them. Make them stronger and more confident so they can continue to do it for themselves. Don’t do it for them; help them achieve it. Be a partner, not a solo.

23 Ways to Control Your Attention to Succeed


control-your-attention

“23 Ways to Control Your Attention to Succeed” by Joan Y. Edwards

Most of the information in this blog post came from a handout Copyright © 1988 from Bjorn Secher Achievement Systems in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1988. I’ve reworded some of it to make it more meaningful.

You are today where your attention has brought you.
 You will be tomorrow where your attention takes you.
You cannot escape the result of your attention.
Attention is your most vital tool…Bjorn Secher

Is your focus scattered with distractions? I’ve had a little trouble focusing my attention lately, too. So I thought I’d read over notes I saved from Bjorn Secher. He was an expert in focusing attention in the 1980s. Reading these ideas might help you focus your thinking and feelings to achieve your goals.

Thought is the key to your success — and thoughts start from a single source…your attention. For increased health, happiness, and success, a change in your attention is essential. In the following, review how your attention influences every moment of your life.

Write 3 of the following statements that appeal to you on a 3″x 5″ index card. Refer to it 10 times a day for a month. It will help to activate your self-awareness and thereby automatically instigate positive behavior changes. Attention is the flow of your thoughts, consciously or unconsciously, in one direction or another, either positive or negative.

  1. When you focus your full attention on something with your thoughts and your emotions, you give it strength, energy, and power. It automatically becomes your priority.
  2. What you relate and identify with becomes your reality, positive or negative, depending on the focus of your attention.
  3. Any road can become a scenic route, depending upon your attention.
  4. Your attention creates the way you perceive the world around you.
  5. The direction of your attention determines what you see, think, hear, and feel.
  6. In any given situation, two interpretations of the same situation exist. Your attention with its beliefs and emotions decides the outcome.
  7. You are not responsible for other people’s actions, but you are always accountable for your own reactions. Your reaction depends upon how well you control your attention.
  8. Control your attention and you control your destiny.
  9. No event, situation, or circumstance can influence your thinking or emotions before you allow your attention to dwell upon it.
  10. When you deliberately change the focus of your attention, it is the first step for a discovery of possibilities that have existed all along.
  11. Attention with its beliefs and emotions is the basis for all decisions.
  12. By changing your attention, you automatically change your mood and attitude.
  13. Depending upon your attention, the problem will appear as an opportunity or turn an opportunity into a problem.
  14. Changing your attention with its thinking and emotions is the beginning of challenging any belief that you assumed was true in the past.
  15. To loosen shackles of your negative assumptions, place your attention on the concept of possibility.
  16. There are always new possibilities, answers, solutions, and techniques for a person with creative, open-minded attention.
  17. Attention creates images — and images are life’s controlling mechanisms.
  18. When you change the focus of your attention, you enter a whole new world and ways to think and act.
  19. Your good intention gets the job started; your controlled attention finishes it.
  20. Commitment and attention are synonymous. It’s very difficult to have one without the other.
  21. Your attention is your constant companion.
  22. In your attention lies the secrets to your strength, determination, and endurance.
  23. The most important thing to remember is wherever you fully put your attention, you will succeed.

When you concentrate your energy purposely on the future possibility that you aspire to realize, your energy is passed on to it and makes it attracted to you with a force stronger than the one you directed towards it.
― Stephen RichardsThink Your way to Success: Let Your Dreams Run Free

Thoughts Become Things… Choose The Good Ones!
― Mike Dooley

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”
James Allen

Why Not? Day 9 Write a Query Letter or Cover Letter. Go Ahead.

“Why Not? Day 9 Write a Query Letter or Cover Letter. Go Ahead” by Joan Y. Edwards

  1. You’ve written sentences.
  2. You’ve written paragraphs.
  3. You’ve written an article, poem, short story, manuscript, screenplay.
  4. You’ve written a title.
  5. You’ve written a pitch.
  6. You’ve revised your writing at least three times.
  7. You’ve had your work critiqued by a critique group, a writing partner, and/or a professional editor. You’ve decided which suggestions you’ll honor and revised your manuscript again. You’ve proofread it and had others to proofread it, too.
  8. You’ve picked out one publisher or agent

What is the difference between a query letter and a cover letter? A cover letter goes along with a copy of a manuscript or a proposal. In the days before emails, these letters would cover the main manuscript or other enclosures. Thus, the name cover letter. With a query, it doesn’t go on top of something. It doesn’t have attachments. It’s all alone. A query letter’s purpose is to ask if someone would like to see a manuscript. It’s asking a question. If there’s nothing attached or enclosed, it’s a query letter.

A cover letter means you have permission to send part of a manuscript. If it’s a non-fiction manuscript book, the guidelines might say to send a proposal with the first three chapters. If a publisher or agent’s guidelines specify that you send ten pages or a whole picture book manuscript, then you’re writing a cover letter to go with it.

Both a query letter and a cover letter follow the same format – one page, single spaced, one-inch margins. Your address, phone number, email address, and date on the right side at the top. The name and address of the editor or agent on the left side.

Greeting: Dear Mr. or Ms. and the last name. When I’m not sure whether it’s Miss or Mrs. I usually use their first name. Please make it more personal than Dear Submission Editor or Dear Agent. But if that’s the best option possible, go with it. A publisher may tell you to send your query to the submission editor with no name mentioned. Other publishers have an online form to submit your information. If so, you can copy and paste elements in the right places. Usually, literary agencies like for you to study their agents and choose the one who works with your genre. They want you to select one and only one agent.

RE: Put Submission or Query or Fall Conference 2016: Check the guidelines for subject notes

First paragraph: Tell where you met them or why you chose them (conference, website, blog, another writer).

Explain that you love the humor, information, mystery, or another quality of a book that they published or represented as an agent. Tell how your book is similar to this book. Tell your PITCH (2 sentences).

Second paragraph: Tell MORE ABOUT YOUR STORY (125 word selling summary).

Tell why you believe this company or agent would be a good match for this manuscript. If the guidelines mention certain interests of publisher or agent, mention it, if it relates to your book.

Third paragraph: SHORT BIO.

Tell 3 biographical sentences about you and your writing/illustrating. Mention your membership in writer or illustrator professional groups, such as Society of Children’s Writers and Illustrators.

Closing paragraph: THANKS AND ASK THE QUESTION.

Thanks for considering my work. If it’s a COVER LETTER, tell what you’ve enclosed or attached. May I send you the complete manuscript of BOOK TITLE? I look forward to hearing from you, but I understand that if I don’t hear from you in _______ months, you are not interested.

If the guidelines accept only email submissions, use email. Make sure your own email address has your name in it, not flowerful@gmail.com or thegreatest@yahoo.com.

If the guidelines ask for snail mail, use your postal service. If they ask for SASE (Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope), be sure and enclose one.

Thank you for subscribing. Question for you, subscribers: Are you getting the updates for new posts for my blog by email like you signed up for? Please answer my poll.  

Good luck with writing your query or cover letter. Please let me know if my ideas or resources help you. There are more resources for you below. To comment, click below and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Why Not? Day 8 Make a List of Good Publishers. Go Ahead.

This is the 8th post in the Why Not Series.

“Why Not? Day 8 Write a List of Good Publishers. Go Ahead” by Joan Y. Edwards

  1. You’ve written sentences.
  2. You’ve written paragraphs.
  3. You’ve written an article, poem, short story, manuscript, screenplay.
  4. You’ve written a title.
  5. You’ve written a pitch.
  6. You’ve revised your writing at least three times.
  7. You’ve had your work critiqued by a critique group, a writing partner, and/or a professional editor. You’ve decided which suggestions you’ll honor and revised your manuscript again. You’ve proofread it and had others to proofread it, too.

Now you’re ready to decide where to send your manuscript…a publisher, agent, or contest? A TOUGH decision. If you’ve decided to self-publish your book, make a list of publishers who specialize in helping people self-publish and their fees. This post is not about self-publishing.

Do your homework. Investigate the publisher, agent, or contest. What are their best sellers? Do they publish your genre? What will be your royalty? Are there any required fees?  Do they accept returns? This is a necessity for your book to be accepted widely in book stores. Otherwise, you’ll have to approach bookstores yourself and see if they will sell your books on consignment. If there are fees, they are not traditional publishers. Stay away from them. Go to others.

Decide your criteria. What do you expect from a publisher? For most of The Big Momma Publishers, you must have an agent. If that’s your wish, obtain an agent.

Check the publishers or agents of three of your favorite books in your genre. Read their submission guidelines. Do they accept unsolicited manuscripts?

Study and find more editors, agents, or contests that are good matches for your manuscript. 

After collecting your information, choose three of the most promising ones for submission. Re-read the submission guidelines for each one. Write three reasons why each publisher or agent on your list would be a great choice. Save this information for your query or cover letter. It will come in handy.

If you’re reading information from a guidebook or an online source, DOUBLE-CHECK the latest submission guidelines on the website of the publisher, agent, or contest. Save yourself heartache. Check them again right before you submit your manuscript.

The next in this blog series will be about writing your query or cover letter to go with your manuscript.
