I am 1 in a 1,000

New mantra: I’m 1 in 1,000

Remember: I am 1 in a 1,000

I mean this!

If I consider that:

1 in 1,000 Manuscripts sent to a publisher gets published as a book.

1 in 1,000 Books published by a publisher makes the best seller listing.

1 in 1,000 best selling books makes it to the No 1 spot in the best sellers list.

Then I must aim to be 1 in 1,000 not once, or twice or three times but many times over if I am to succeed. A sobering thought for an aspiring novelist.

Nothing like aiming high... because if I miss, I’ll end up among the stars!


  1. perhaps when you say you're one in a thousand you could be considering your uniqueness and your ability to stand out - perhaps in fact you could consider being one in a million. I know it will happen for you - keep the faith :)

  2. I love your title - your outlook of yourself as being THE 1 in the 1000! How refreshing and empowering it is to aim high and think of yourself as THE ONE - because you make of yourself what you think of yourself! :D Go Kay!

  3. It sounds long odds, but just think how it will feel when you do those things and see you did become that one in a thousand. Keep striving forward, I'm there with you!

  4. Remember too, there's always room at the top. It's the bottom that's crowded. Good philosophy--aim high. Good luck with your novel.
