Author Unknown - Happy New Year Thought...

Posted by Arthur Gutch on Tue, Dec 31, 2013 @ 09:22 AM

 

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday!

While visiting relatives I was handed a typed letter written by a person of unknown origin that really struck a chord. It is something that young and old can relate to.

The letter shown below from an Unknown Author provides a great message of writing and remembering that seemed relevant, as writing becomes more important as an activity of our times!

The Writing Life: Writing as a Business

Originally published on hazelandwren.com

When we’re children we dream of being artists, cowboys, astronauts, and princesses, but we never follow through with those things. We’re told they’re foolish goals. We’re told that artists starve and that you must be a royal to become a princess. (But now there’s Kate Middleton who’s given a new generation some hope.) Regardless, we’re told to find “real” careers.

So what is a “real” career? To my family, writing was always the thing I’d do until I figured out my life plan. When they learned I was contemplating law, they couldn’t have been happier. “That’s a good, solid career right there,” they said. And yes, in college I did have a brief moment where I pursued media law, but writing still called to me.

We've talked before about creative ideas for fiction authors to use to expand their blog -- but how do you make the time? We're going to explore time saving tactics that will help you build up your content to create an exciting and informative site for your readers.

1. Map out the week or year and create an editorial calendar of topics you want to cover and explore.

2. Set aside time just for writing blogs. Do you write better in the morning or at night? Choose your creative time!

Writer's Block: The Symptoms and the Cure

Posted by Sherrie Wilkolaski on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 @ 09:00 AM

By Karen Hodges Miller

The other day I had a writing deadline. I wrote a lead. Deleted it. Wrote another. Deleted it. Played some solitaire. Checked my email. Wrote a third lead. Deleted it. Got a snack. Wrote a fourth lead. I was suffering from that dread disease, Writer’s Block. If you haven’t experienced Writer’s Block, you just haven’t been writing long enough. Believe me, it will happen to you.

The symptoms of Writer’s Block are easy to identify. You sit at your computer and nothing happens. Unlike the day or week before when words flowed easily from your mind to the computer screen, now there is nothing. If you do manage to write a few sentences they aren’t good. They don’t express your thoughts or ideas, the grammar is terrible, the structure is poor. There is no grace or creativity in your words. If the first symptoms persists for more than an hour or two you move to the second stage of the disease. You begin to doubt yourself. Why did you ever think you could write in the first place? Obviously your talent has gone, fled to the far reaches of the atmosphere. You are sure it will never return.
