Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.

 

Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

Writing! Yay!

 

I know, clever title. Right?

 

I'm so happy right now. I've done more writing this month than all of last year.

 

Posting this, I'm not trying to brag. While I'm insanely happy, I also hope to help those who are struggling. I know a few writers follow me here. I struggled with one of the worst dry writing spells of my life last year--it even got to a point where I feared I'd lost my passion for writing.

 

It can be done. Try changing your routine. Write a little every day. You don't have to write thousands upon thousands of words each day. Start out small. It'll lead to better writing days.

 

What works best for me is to get some writing done early on in the day, even if it's only a few hundred words to start. That way if something comes up later that day where I can't write more, at least I have something to show for the day.

 

Keep it up! :) You'll have your bad writing days...but you'll also have your extremely awesome ones as well.
