ARE YOU–A DRAGON OR A MOUSE?

 Dragons are said to have spiritual significance in certain religions and cultures. Some cultures revere dragons; they feel they represent nature and or religion. Some even associate them with wisdom.

Mice we think of as a small mammal, and to some they are pets. To large birds, they are food. These little creatures also invade our homes for food and shelter.     

 

 

What do you think of when you think of a dragon? I will admit I certainly would not think of them as having wisdom. They are big, and fire pours out of their mouth creating havoc and poisoning the air.

Of the two, I would think the mouse has more wisdom, certainly smarter; it sneaks into our homes for survival.

We humans are similar… either we come on so strong it turns people off or we are so timid no one hardly knows we are around.

Somewhere between the dragon and the mouse there should be balance. For a writer it is important to overcome some of your shyness and tell people you are a writer. So don’t be a mouse. Tell them what you are writing.  If the book is at your publishers announce it to the world and give them the release date. Be a little more ‘dragonistic’ (I like this new word)! Just don’t go totally dragon on us and forget there are others who are writing too.
