Archive for January, 2015

Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material. ~~. John Steinbeck

It is the end of January already? Wow! And I have found the perfect quote for me… I am so guilty of rewriting as I write……. the main thing that gets me behind in my goals. Thank you, Mr. Steinbeck, for this is advice I need to post above my computer and heed!

Writing and aiming for those stars!

Don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work ~~. Pearl S. Buck

I love this quote. Very simply put… if you are going to write, then write. These last couple of years have been hard for me, wanting to keep my writing going and not having the ‘mood’ hit me… finding myself sitting on the sofa hours after saying I would write… then finding the mood just didn’t hit me. It isn’t and shouldn’t always be that way. Writing is a passion, yes, but for those of us who want to be authors, it is also a job of sorts. Nothing gets accomplished without actually sitting there before the computer or with a tablet or with pencil and paper…and writing.

Remember, this is the time I am making my biggest steps to achieve my goal! How about you?

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things about all others: read a lot and write a lot…reading is the creative center of a writer’s life…you cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you. ~~Stephen King

I grew up loving to read… and I read all sorts of books. Mysteries, romances, books too scary to read at night, you name it… I loved to read. I recall wanting to be Nancy Drew, to be the heroine in Victoria Holt’s novels or to complete the ending of Gone With The Wind. It was those thoughts and those ideas that began to transpire into a need to write.

Keep your creative processes going!

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it. ~~ Neil Gaiman

It is one week into the new year, 2015! Keep those creative juices flowing, those ideas forming! If you can, keep a notebook or journal nearby for those daydreams or thoughts that will eventually appear in your writing!
