I'll start this honestly. For way too many years I trashed NaNoWriMo because I was an arrogant kid. Simple as that. I made my own rules on how you should write and churning out a book in a month went against all those rules. You can't put out quality work so fast. Does a book end at… Continue reading NaNoWriMo: What I Learned
Hey! On Monday we just talked about de-cluttering and getting rid of stuff that you really don't actually need. And guess what? That applies double to you writers out there. This may be a little different for those of you who write your stories and ideas on computers first. I write all of my work… Continue reading Hoarding Work As A Writer
Hello, hello! Last week was a post about running and today’s post is going to be a quick one but a blast. Sometimes our writing gets stale. Maybe we’re a horror writer, a fantasy writer, a romance writer, or any other kind of writer and we just need something to mix stuff up. Try something… Continue reading 10 Fun Writing Prompts
That's a big question. I'm a writer, if it hasn't yet been made clear. I spend most of my days doing just that...writing. For those of you that are beginning your writing journey or don't even write but are curious as to what I actually do for that long, let me tell you. Photo by… Continue reading What Projects Am I Working On?
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?
Hello! This one is geared towards those of you who have taken a break from your writing routine (like if you went on vacation), those of you who want to start writing, or those of you who want to be a writer but can't consistently write. Let's talk. Right off the bat let's understand two… Continue reading Settling Into A Writing Routine
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. Anyway, I'm a runner and I'm a writer which means I'm a little neurotic and a little obsessed. Not too… Continue reading Running and Writing on Vacation
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
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
Am I a fan of it? Do I write it? What do I think of the genre of lovey dovey poetry? And does it have a place in literature? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Well, to start with, I'm not a fan of "romance poetry". But, I am? I really enjoy a good love poem.… Continue reading Poetry and Love
