- Two announcements:
One, Please check out the newer version of Heartfeltwords4kids at http://heartfeltwords4kids.wordpress.com
It has several posts over the past weeks and I am experimenting with the theme. The decision will have to be made eventually about which site to keep up and which to put to bed, and your opinions are important to me.
Second, Check out http://prayables.com It is a new online site for those in need of spiritual inspiration or guidance. Sign up for the daily prayer to come directly to your mailbox, how easy is that? It is nondenominational, so it fits into every individual lifestyle. And it is also a source for your to submit your writing. If you feel inclined to write a prayer, they do take submissions.
Let me know what you think, and keep writing.
Do you ever feel like you are walking down a dusty road to nowhere with regards to your writing?
Sometimes we need to take a moment and reflect on where we are and where we want to be.
It goes back to goals: look at your writing goals and look at the goals you have acheived. Write your success story.
If you don't see progress towards your goals you can do one of two things:
- Change the goal
- Change how you are going to reach the goal
That sounds simple doesn't it. Look at what you have been doing in regards to time spent writing, finding assignments, sending queries, putting words on the page and see what things you are doing that work.
Then look at what you may be doing to hinder your progress. Procrastination is a big part of a writing roadblock and so is fear. Fear of success. Fear of critique, Fear of failure.
Over the weekend take a time to re-evaluate your goals. List a couple of changes you can make to reach your goals. Stop doing what is hindering your progress as a writer. Get off the dusty road to nowhere and get back in the saddle so to speak. Write, my friend, write.
