The Secret Lives of Writers

I’m a contributing writer to this lovely anthology about what it’s like to be a writer – while doing everything else… I feel sometimes like a hero with a cape at night getting my word count in and finishing a great scene, that is until early morning school time – then I feel like the dead in need of a strong caffeinated beverage. Get your copy it’s only $0.99 until 9/1 if you want to know more about the glorious life behind the page – 🙂

Cheers,

How to Stay Motivated in Your Writing

I’ve been struggling lately with my edits and rewrites.  What is boils down to isn’t necessarily time, its motivation.  I’m in a little rut with a timeline that’s looming and I can’t seem to get in gear, I’d rather spend time with the family or get to bed at a decent hour and try for 6 hours sleep over 4.  It’s awful my excuses, I think we all go through it.  I came across this article and it hit the nail on the head for me and it may do the same for you, therefore, I’m sharing below.

I’m making the time and pushing through a particular section in my book today.  At least I’m well rested today 🙂

Let me know below how you stay motivated in your writing or editing process – sharing is caring and inspiration is free.
