How I feel every day working 2 jobs and trying to make it as a #writer... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜§ ( #repost via @writers.struggle)
On this snowy Wednesday morning, y'all, by some extremely rare turn of events... I find myself all alone. πŸ™ŒπŸ» And I'm not talking alone for 5 minutes here. I'm talking a few good, solid hours of just me, myself and I. And I had forgotten my home could be this quiet! 😬 Now, I'm gonna be honest with you because I think we are friends and friends have to be honest. After I arrived home from walking the Mayhue boys to school... I had to fight against every fiber of my being not to take off my boots and promptly get back into bed and take a nap! Can I get an amen? This gal πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ‘ˆπŸ» would like to take a nap! BUT after fighting the good fight and staying awake I realized there is no time like the quiet, stillness of this present moment to pour a cup of coffee and sit with my Jesus. You see, He and I are right smack in the midst of an exciting, creative venture! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š Lately, I have let the natural and inevitable busyness of life distract me from making sure I am doing the few things I know will fill my spirit instead of drain it. And nothing fills my spirit like coffee and conversation with my Savior. So, it is high time that we once again put our heads together and I put pen to paper... well fingers to keyboard! Here's to productivity my friends!! And bravo πŸ‘πŸ» to you amazing folks out there who can be productive without a pep talk and the distraction of then posting about your pep talk on social media! 😁 #sorrynotsorry πŸ˜† #writingaboutwriting

You can be that author. You can be that screen-writer. That Pulitzer can be yours. That Nobel Peace Prize can sit on your mantelpiece. That Grammy can rest in your palm. The notoriety can all be yours. But, you have to first, write. That book. That movie. That song. Write it. Everything else comes after the words are etched on page.β € ______β € .β € .β € .β € .β € . β € #editor #copywriter #withstyleandgrammar #ipledgeallegiancetothepen #eyesontheprose #writingaboutwriting #womeninbusiness #thewriteway #itsinthedetails #grammarcounts #browngirlwhowrites #browngirlwhoblogs #theliterarygodmother #shesgottahaveit #shewrites #creativepreneur #butfirstwrite #beeyeconik #likeaneyecon
Editing tip!β € Always edit your content in more than one medium. This saves you from subconscious distractions and skimming practices. I always edit on my laptop, first. Then, with a red pen and neon highlighters on a printed copy. Last, I import to my kindle and curl up with the project currently under the microscope using the highlighter feature.β € _____β € Conducting edits in this fashion helps to spotlight any errors that can possibly be caught in the crosshairs. It also helps cut down on the daunting effect of sitting and mauling over the same topic for hours. Naturally, we begin to skim when we know the content or the overall intent. This three-step process helps cut down on the number of edits you'll have to completely before your project is rubber stamped for publication.β € ____β € .β € .β € .β € .β € . β € #nanowrimo #editor #copywriter #withstyleandgrammar #ipledgeallegiancetothepen #eyesontheprose #writingaboutwriting #womeninbusiness #thewriteway #itsinthedetails #grammarcounts #browngirlwhowrites #browngirlwhoblogs #theliterarygodmother #shesgottahaveit #shewrites #creativepreneur #butfirstwrite #beeyeconik #likeaneyecon

My favorite literary technique. One I never use in my published works. Or any content that may befall another's sight. Not because I don't think it's good. Not because it won't be received. I know it will be. But because people are unaware. With no prior exposure. No knowledge of the style. It'd confuse. It'd discombobulated. Ultimately. There would be no reception of the beauty. The word play. The sentence placement. The skill. The shape of the words on the page. Would be foreign. Would be unappreciated. But. What a disservice to neglect my true passion. To put on the back burner the only thing that fuels my pen. My thoughts. No matter how unsure. No matter how unrequited. If but only one, appreciates. That's the goal. That's the beauty in it. The not knowing. The finding out. The growing and dying and growing, again. Getting back to her essence. Burning desire? Ignite it. Fueling creative engine? Drive it. πŸ’œ _______ . . . . . #writersofinstagram #blackgirlauthor #withstyleandgrammar #ipledgeallegiancetothepen #eyesontheprose #writingaboutwriting #itsinthedetails #wordenthusiast #literaturebased #browngirlwhowrites #theliterarygodmother #shesgottahaveit #shewrites #creativepreneur #butfirstwrite #beeyeconik #likeaneyecon
