All-Inspired Writing Hour

Sometimes your best writing can come from hours and even days of tedious writing with the concept in mind, but no words come easy. Other times, you find circumstances or things around you that trigger something in your creative brain where in a split-second you can write a million miles a minute!

Often times, inspiration can spring from a comment someone makes and the emotions that are present within it.

Capturing the emotion of the moment is crucial.

Writers Challenge: Take one hour. Think about a story, comment, or circumstance that stirred you. Let your resulting emotions flood you as you take the inspiration and write a scene in your next novel that you can transfer those emotions to.

Ready? Set? WRITE!

Stop Moving the Goal Post!

I was looking for inspiration today and this quote is what I found.

A goal is a dream with a deadline.

It is good to have dreams, but if you aren’t doing anything to pursue them then they might as well be on your amazon wish list that you hope someone will finally check out and randomly send you something on it. Basically, if you want something, you need to go after it.

How is that book coming along that you have dreamed of writing for the last several years? I suppose you might have said, “I’m going to write my book this year…” and then you continue pushing it back because you find you don’t have the time.

STOP MOVING THE GOAL POST.

If something is important to you, you will find a way. If it is not, you will find an excuse.

Is writing that book on your wish list or your goal list?

I challenge you to set a deadline for your dream and start working towards that goal. If you keep moving the goal post, then you will always be a field away from it. Set yourself, run full force and find a team to help keep you accountable and on the right track.

You now have your goal in sight. Take it one yard at a time. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, just as long as you get there. There will be set-backs. You might fumble along the way. But when you pick that up and run with all of your might, you are going to get closer and closer to that goal post until you finally score.

That makes it 1 for the dream team!
