Turning an Oops into a Successful Mistake

The Pens are pleased to welcome back Lisa Alder as our guest today!! Lisa's erotic novella, The Demon's Bargain, is available in ebook format at Amazon, and Smashwords. Her next novella, To Summon A Demon will be out later this month.

I'm a firm believer in positive thinking. Not only is the glass half full, it's usually half full of my favorite Chardonnay. One of my favorite inspiration people is Tony Robbins. In his fabulous book, Awaken the Giant Within, he talks about how changing how we look at a situation can change our perspective.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this perspective. So much of life is out of our control but the one thing that we can control is our attitude when life's 'oops' happen.

Instead of lamenting the fact that my dishwasher broke because my cat bit holes in the flexible drainage pipe, I've been using my dishwashing time to plot and daydream about plot...working out the details for the third erotic novella, The Demon's Seduction. (okay, I totally am lying, I really hate doing dishes, seriously, hate--however I found the positive in the negative)

Some really great things are the result of 'oops'...Penicillin, Post-Its and Potato Chips are all the results of an 'oops'.

So the next time you have an 'oops' look for the opportunity to turn it into a successful mistake.

Thanks so much to the Pens for having me! You can find me on the web at , on Twitter @LisaAlderBooks and email

My next erotic novella, To Summon A Demon, will be out soon. I'll leave you with Prince Gaap's cover which is totally HOT!
