At to Z Blogger Challenge: Letter N

NEVER SAY NEVER

To say my daughter is infatuated with Justin Bieber would be a slight understatement. What seven year old isn't, I suppose. Why not? He has a cute smile, rhythm, he tweets and more than anything, he is constantly telling kids...or people in general, to NEVER SAY NEVER.

That's right. He had a dream and worked his tiny little tail off until he made it a reality. Now he promotes the idea, that with hard work and some skill, you should NEVER SAY NEVER to whatever it is that you lay in bed at night dreaming about.

How motivating to my little girl? And, well, to me. As a writer there are many days that I wonder what it's all for. Should I keep on keepin' on. And the answer is, yep. I will NEVER SAY NEVER.

What about you? Do you have something in your life you will NEVER SAY NEVER to?

I like Justin Bieber, too lol. :D There are several thing I never say never too, but at the moment, it's all about writing!

absolutely. Star Trek and science fiction is full of hope and optimism for the future. You've got to keep on going!

Everything! Haha, I'm a YES! person :D

My 7 year old loves him too, but not my 12 year old son. He thinks Bieber is to blame for everything wrong with the world. LOL! If he is going to rebel at least it is against Bieber.

Can't say that I'm a Bieber fan, but Never Say Never is a good sentiment to have!

I prefer walking around the house singing, baby baby baby oh! :) Our house is split between Beiber lovers and not-so-lovers. Regardless, never say never is always a good mantra.

I've learned never to say never...the minute you do...it happens.

I'm not really a Bieber fan, but I do love that song! I try my best not to say it, because there are very few things in life the word 'never' really applies to. ;)

I will Never say Never to some things but absolutely will say never to eating beets, bungee jumping, riding a bull, and rolling in fire ants.

I took my 13 yr old DD to see Bieber. Must admit, it was a good concert!

I've learned never to say never the hard way! :)

Don't know about Bieber, but Winston Churchill provided me with my mantra: "Never. Never. Never give up!"

Angela Brown said...

Yeah, Bieber is slow making his way into the house with my 7 year old little girl.

And my writing is my "Never say Never" dream. The options are too many, my dream too close to being in the palm of my hands. Okay, so I still have several other things that need to happen like multiple revisions of my WiP, agent querying and if I'm a winner there then well, you know, all that other stuff too. But yeah, my writing. I love it.

My 8 year old son likes him and he gets teased for it. I watched the DVD that came out and I was actually impressed. (Had to plug my ears the whole time, though.)

Kelley Lynn said...

I haven't heard anything by Justin, but I have most definitely have heard OF him :)

Its a great message. :)

I had to watch NEVER SAY NEVER to prep for a "Finding Your YA Voice" workshop. I have to say, it hooked me. Wasn't a Biebs fan before, but now I am. I would never say never to any of my dreams. There's no reward in the giving up.

Murder someone. I will most certainly murder someone. I'd have perhaps murdered my ex-wife. But she became ex.

Beiber may get hassle for his image, but if he's telling kids to never say never and to try and achieve, he can't be all bad.
