What Do I use To Write?

And why. All right, so today you guys get to see how old-timey I actually am. I'm a very old-fashioned writer but not because it's cool or hipster. In fact, if you spent any amount of time writing things the way I do you would think I'm crazy. You won't write on anything other than… Continue reading What Do I use To Write?

Running and Writing on Vacation

Onto another post about vacations! If you aren't interested in vacation material you might want to check back next week. Or you could just save this post for when you take a break this summer.

Writing With Motivation

Nope. This is not a post about how to find motivation to write. I know I've said it at least once, but I'll say it again: You don't need motivation. It's just a little nicer when you have it. But you don't need it. Not to workout. Not to write. Not to reach your deadline.… Continue reading Writing With Motivation

When To Stop Writing

Or maybe I should say, "When to take a break from writing". Or maybe, "When to put the pen down". Or maybe, "Do you need to stop writing?". Or maybe, "Just stop writing...for now". There's reason number one: you can't stop rephrasing things. Let's assume we're all writers here. Doesn't matter what kind, but you write. When you take… Continue reading When To Stop Writing

Be Strong, Write Stronger

A few Tuesdays back, I wrote some tips for all you beginning authors. Maybe you've already given up on that book this year or maybe you're sticking to it...and struggling. Well don't worry! All authors struggle. I don't care who they are. If a writer says they have never struggled then they are lying. Simple… Continue reading Be Strong, Write Stronger

It’s A Beautiful Day

And it just so happens that it's my birthday. Like most of these blogs, I'm writing this one in advance. I'm not rushing or waiting till an hour before I actually want to post to begin writing. Instead, I'm working on this earlier. So...today isn't actually my birthday. But the day I'm posting it is.… Continue reading It’s A Beautiful Day

Find Inspiration in Winter

There was a blizzard yesterday. No, I'm not being dramatic. The roads are covered in snow, the schools are closed, and it's a slushy pile of angry people outside...save the children building a snowman across the street.  It's gorgeous though! Absolutely lovely. But not every single day of winter is filled with brilliant, white, fresh snow. A… Continue reading Find Inspiration in Winter
