Take It From Emerson

Day 168

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have books that I have already written and published, and I have books that are coming out later this year, but it’s important to remember that I am not defined by my books – and neither are you. Yes, we are authors. We spend a lot of time writing and marketing our books, but our books don’t make us who we are. We make our books what they are.

Each of our books holds a small piece of who we are. We put a little of ourselves into each of them, and a lot of ourselves into marketing them, but they aren't who we are. We created them; we make them what they are. We shape them and mold them, and of course they hold a place in our hearts, but sometimes it’s important to step back and realize that there is more to life than books.

Marketing prompt:

Write a blog post about your life outside of writing.

Days to go: 197
