I am often asked where my blogging ideas come from. They come from my head, genius! Really though, I have a knack for writing. I am practically perfect at it. So, I know you want to know my secret to having a successful writing life.
LoN Advice for Writing:
Be Productive –The key to writing is to find a productivity training ground. I suggest going to Facebook and wasting hours playing games such as Farmville, Bingo, Bejeweled, and one of the bubble popping games. These time sucking games are wonderful for teaching you productivity.
- Involve Friends — Another key component is, asking your friends for help. I ask Rod, Jason, and Hubby to help me with content and editing. Often we get on webcam to be able to have the correct understanding of one another. They are so supportive: they spend hours of time talking to me about life, dreams, girls, and their strange affinity for ugly sweaters.
- Always be Truthful — It is paramount that you always tell the truth to your readers. Never lie, or your audience learns not to trust you. Sometimes this doesn’t work well with the story you’re posting about. This is why it is important to make your lies true in your head… which leads to the next point.
- Mental awareness — It is important that you become aware of the fact that you are insane. It is okay; embrace the fact and use it to better yourself. For example, if people want to read about Prince Harry, convince yourself and your audience that he is obsessed with you.
Be aware of your environment – It has been said that the author Stephen King goes off to write in hotels or cabins for months at a time. This seclusion helps him sit down to write without distraction We all know what a hack the man is. No one respects his writing, so do the opposite. Find a place with as much noise and distraction as possible. Teach the kids to make you your alcoholic beverage of choice and just write down everything you hear around you. If you do this, you will be able to write better than him… better yet, you will be able to write better than E L James. This is the only way you can top her genius.
- Be prepared — Nothing is worse than being on a roll in your writing, when suddenly your humanity hits. You have to go to the dreaded room of doom; the bathroom. Instead, wear a diaper. This works best in combo with a beverage hat and a fanny pack full of m&ms.
Of course, this isn’t all the advice I have for you on writing, but this is a starting point. I hope you take this advice seriously, because it might be the difference between success and failure I only interact with winners.
Lady or Not… Here I Come!
