A fun one today. Seriously, my brain was fried this weekend on becoming Twitterfied (that’s an actual certification you know) and writing my WIP.
Here is what I have learned about writing from my cats. Say it isn’t so!
At times we feel boxed in and squared out with our writing
Then a supportive writer friend comes along and boosts us up..again..
When stuck, reflecting by the fire can help
Being read to reminds us why we love to write
Some days we just need to warm up before we start
...And sometimes we need a friend to warm up with us
When in doubt, it's okay to crawl in a hole - for awhile
But don't forget to come out to play and remember what drives you!
Find relaxing places to write that drive your muse
After making your word count goal, relaxing with friends is the best
We may need to find new & different friends with experience to help at times
Always sit down to write in something comfortable
It's scary to put our writing and ourselves out there, I know
But the more friends we make when we do! Friends do a writer good
Have one good friend who will watch your back and tell you like it is
Hugs work when all other advice fails
Lunch. The one meal of the day writers skip when in the groove
When all else fails, find a new place to write you never thought to try before
Goofing off is allowed, in small doses. Don't be too hard on yourself if you do. Tomorrow is another day!
Hiding away can feed the writer soul too and make for good writing
Find a look alike, a writer mentor in your genre to look up to
Don't forget to look to the stars and keep dreaming
Never trust a man with a paintbrush...hmmm..not sure what that means
Napping is never overrated, it fuels the brain with dreams and creativity
Find new writer places to hang out in and you will make new writer friends
It's true, sometimes we get stepped on and it ain't fun
Then some times we must bite the hand that feeds us and go our own way
And try and get ourselves back on top feeling good again about our writing
And put on our happy face, content with where we are because at the end of the day...
Love makes our world go around, in our dreams and reality
And we can go to sleep on that, content we are following our writer heart
