GENREALITY

Keep Smiling

Diana isn’t feeling so hot so I thought I’d drop in and share a few tips that I’ve picked up over the past week. And because I’m trying to very hard not to give in to that 97% (you’ll get that in a minute) I’m going to do it with photos.

Right? This is important. As a reader I hate it when info dumps kill a story, so why would I do it as a writer? It is hard to remember sometimes, but very important. :)

Get it now? Yes, I love the internet, and it is a big part of my life and career as a writer, but nothing is as important to that part of my life as actually doing the work.

Lastly, and one I think should never be forgotten…

Now, go forth, and write Bravely!

Have a good Friday!

    I totally agree with the internet one. It’s why I have my partner turn the internet off during writing time :mrgreen:

    These are great. The internet is a particularly powerful distraction for me. Writing bravely is fine advice. It reminds me, too, of Barbara Ueland’s advice from her classic book, If you want to be a writer, “Be a lion, be a pirate, when you write.” Be brave.

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Appreciate it!
