Author Don Massenzio was busy blogging last week and I admit, I couldn’t make up my mind about re-blogging. That’s why I decided to share all three posts here, convinced that each one of these posts are a gain to our writing life. Thank you for all your work Don!
Am I a Real Author?
When I jumped into the indie author scene, it was a calculated risk. Like I do with a lot of decisions, I looked at the pros and cons.
Top Excuses for Not Writing Your Book and How to Get Over Them
You’ve always wanted to write a book. You know you have at least one book bouncing around in your brain. So what’s stopping you?
So You Want to be a Writer? What Are You Going to Write About?
In some capacity, I have always been a writer. When other kids dreaded writing papers or completing essay questions on tests, I welcomed them. These things were a chance to show what I knew and what I thought instead of testing my capability to memorize data. My ability to write served me well throughout my professional career (day job). Something was missing, though.
Kristen Lamb, one of our favorite teachers, provided us with an enormously impressive post about the creative benefits of being bored. I have to admit, I’d recommend it to everyone. Read it, and take out of it what you need. Thank you, Kristen!
Hey everyone! Remember me? It’s Kristen and I’m back and yes of course I missed all of you dearly. In this blog, I’ve always worked to be transparent with you guys so you knew it was okay to be human. Lately, I’ve been very very human as in seriously exhausted and burned out. Working is easy for me. Resting?
That requires an intervention.
Hey, I’m a work in progress too! 😛
I’m bad about having two speeds, GO and GO HARDER. Three years ago I pushed and pushed until I ended up with a nice case of Shingles that laid me out for months.
Yeah nothing to make a gal feel young and sexy like Shingles.
One would think I learned from that. Sigh. No *hangs head in shame* So I’ve been going going going for months. Launched a debut book, blogging, teaching then went to present at a week-long retreat…where I worked 10-12 hour days. I LOVE my work. Sitting alone in the woods in the quiet? When there are writers I can HELP??????
