No Matter What Universe We All Need It



Make Your Own Meme
No matter what universe we inhabit--with the exception of a few strong, healthy-minded souls--most of us, at different points in time face insecurity and self-doubts, especially writers.  When uncertainties hit we need something positive to concentrate on.  My recommendation: make yourself a meme, designed especially for you, to pull out whenever you need it. Got a great review?Words of encouragement?A favorite quote?That, and a picture you are fond of, is all you need.
I currently use Corel’s PaintShop but you don't have to have a special software package to design your own memes.  All you need is a picture. From there you can use free software off the internet.  Picture Quotes at www.picturequotes.com  is easy to work with.  I used a picture from a past vacation that I felt was peaceful and serene, words from a friend/fellow writer/editor that meant a lot to me and created this:
         

I stuck a frame on it, but it’s completely unnecessary. 

What about you? Got an idea for a meme?
