"To write you need so very little. You need an honest heart. And some paper. You need to approach your writing life just as you would a romantic partner, not as you would a discipline.

Are you doing a frenzied kind of scary dance in the center of your life to take up the emptiness there? Are you sick of saying you want a writing life, more time for writing, when you keep not doing anything about it?

Choose what you want to be in the center. Sit down, and quit thinking that you are the center. Make your center an inviting place. Stop complaining. If you have the energy and are practiced in the ways of love,put writing in the center just as you would a new lover, the love of your life. If you are committed already, take on writing as a lover on the side.

Let yourself be as passionately pulled to this lover as you would with an affair of the heart. Time will fall away. Love is the only way to create time. You will be happier and you will make the people around you happier if you "shut up and sit down." Make it seem like you are at least choosing your own life."

"Ambition. We get afraid of being successful because we are used to things the way they are. Change, even good change, is very scary. Would we be us anymore if you took our writing more seriously? No. We wouldn't. It's a little like death. Well, it is exactly like a death. New you writes more. The new you gets good. The old guy, the non writer wanna-be dies. We all say we want this, to be writers, but I can see why so few folks actually put the time in.

You have to be very fearless to change yourself. It's not very comfortable. Ambition leads to different friends, different clothes, different habits, a different maybe unrecognizable you... Ambition is growth.

To be successful as a writer you have to imagine clearly and fearlessly what you really want. Do you really want to write a bestseller? Because you could. You could read dozens of them and figure out just how to do it. If you focused on this it would happen to you. You could read books on successful people and their habits. You could make yourself into this type of person.

But you would have to not be the person you are right now. "

Although this advice may sound circular, and it is, the best way to write is to write. Sit down each and every day and just do it. After years of wanting to be read, heard and mystified, I just sat down one day and began to let the words spill out on the paper.

Best of luck to you.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
