What are the most useful things you can do to help get more writing done?
Eat, drink, and sleep properly. All of these things work together to keep a brain functioning at its best.
When you’re stuck get active! Exercise pumps blood through the brain, allowing thoughts to jump around until a solution comes up. Even a mile walk with a dog can greatly benefit the brain and help get creative juices flowing.
Schedule time to write. So many different websites and authors mention this because it’s a great idea. Scheduling time to write, and then make sure to write something during that time.
Watch, read, and do new things. One of the best sources of inspiration is finding something new and really cool.
Experiment. Try a new writing style, view point, or tense. Each of these is a tool and knowing more about how useful the tool is, and what the best time is to use it, is a great way to improve your confidence.
Bonus - Have fun! Writing is about creating something that you enjoy. Take a minute to enjoy it! ~Shannon Kauderer
As a writer, I spin tales to take the reader away from everyday life, if only for a few hours. However, becoming a published author and reaching readers is a struggle. Writers sit in front of laptops and tap away in hopes of creating the next great American novel. But what happens after the manuscript is written and edited? It was a dilemma for a few of my fellow writers and me. One Sunday night at Denny’s we pondered the question. Sending query letters to publishers is nerve wrecking. It takes the stars to be aligned just right to connect and get a contract. We knew there had to be another solution. Yes, self-publishing on Amazon is an option, but the writers at the Sunday Night Write In knew there had to be other alternatives. So in January, the idea of starting a publishing company for authors in the 518 was spawned. The 518 Publishing Company, LLC has been created to help writers in the 518 to publication. We will make it happen.
