As you can probably gather from past posts, I'm a big fan of visualization. Understand, you still have to do the work to make what you visualize come true. And positive energy and thoughts are also important.

But I think visualization helps the impossible seem possible. 

One exercise you might want to try is the Publisher's Marketplace blurb. I did it this morning for my latest WIP.

Write a one sentence blurb about the book you are writing. This is a good exercise in and of itself. But then, tweak the blurb so it looks similar to what might appear in Publisher's Marketplace, with your agent's name, and perhaps an editor you would love to work with. And hey, if you want to visual a "very good deal," be my guest!

As an example, here's the blurb that ran in PM for I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME:

Lisa Schroeder's debut I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME, a novel in verse about love and grief in which  fifteen-year-old Ava's boyfriend, who is dead but not gone, is keeping her from moving on, to Michael Del Rosario at Simon Pulse by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger, Inc

Everyday, read that blurb. Imagine it being posted where others read and send you congratulatory messages.

BELIEVE it's possible.

Because it is!

So did you write your blurb?

I wrote one for my current WIP and I read it everyday. :)

I hadn't, but I have now! I'll print it out and read it every day! I truly believe that we shape our lives with our thoughts & should try to stay on the positive high road!
