Writing Bucket List

Recently I read an awesome post by JD of A Wrestling Writer on Out Of The Well called Writing Bucket List. I have never been big on bucket lists. Maybe I’m not ready to die (just kidding!) or just cause I’m not big on adrenaline rush, but I’ve never thought of a specific bucket list, […]

Writing is Courage

Don’t let the inspiration hold you back. Often, when we sit down to write, we don’t feel “inspired”. We are tired, reeling from stress from our regular day jobs and the last thing we want to do is open a page and be honest with ourselves. So we pretend that the issue here is a […]

My Must-Haves When I Write

In one of my previous posts I talked about the Inspiration and how, rather waiting for the inspiration to write, you should write first and the inspiration will surely follow. However, there is that subject of actually writing. How do you make yourself get into that writing chair daily and stick to it? And once […]

Share the Inspiration, My Favorite Quotes

As I am following my 500 words a day plan (still going strong!), I wanted to share something with you. As writers we know the power of a word. We write thousands of words that paint stories that make readers laugh and cry and feel as if they are in the middle of the story. […]
