The Poetry Continues!

Hey everybody!

I believe in my last post I talked about how I was writing some poetry after feeling stuck when it came to writing a new novel. While I am in no way giving up on writing fiction, I have decided to work on writing and publishing a poetry book!

First let me remind all of you that Gary Ginsburg and I do already have an inspirational article and poetry book out that is available for purchase on Amazon.com, entitled Inspiration Unbound. I’d like to thank everyone who has already purchased a copy and continues to support our writing. If you have any questions about this book, please feel free to ask.

While in the last article and poetry book that Gary Ginsburg and I came out with, Gary wrote the poems and I wrote the articles, I will be the sole author of the next poetry book and it will only contain poetry. So far the poems I have written for the book include such topics as : love, divorce, anxiety, fame, politics, music, dreams, etc. I am very excited to be working on this new project and hope you will join me in this new journey!

As for my progress, I have about thirteen poems written so far and am happy to say that the writing is going well! If you want to read some fantastic poetry while you wait for my new book to be finished, please feel free to check out the inspirational article and poetry book written by myself and Gary Ginsburg! Inspirational Unbound includes wonderful poetry and articles that talk about anxiety, strength, overcoming obstacles, and much more! Thank you!

 

Writing What Feels Right

Are you a writer? Do you ever find yourself struggling to write what you’re currently working on? Well, I do. In fact, I’ve recently found it difficult to continue writing the novels I’ve started. Still, I find myself wanting to write and wanting to write something worthwhile.

In the last post I wrote, I spoke about how my relative, Gary Ginsburg, advised that I write some poetry to help me become motivated. I thought it was a great idea and began to work on some poems. You know what? I became inspired and I’m seriously considering writing a poetry book! I’ve already written about four poems that I’d love to include!

My point? Just because something isn’t working out doesn’t mean that you should give up. I’m not a failure just because I’m having trouble working on my novels – I’m simply not feeling the stories at the moment. However, I am enjoying writing poetry at the moment and the ideas seem to be flowing quite nicely. There’s no reason that I shouldn’t take advantage of that!

So if you’re struggling with what you’re working on, but still feel the desire to write, try writing a different medium. If you’ve been writing poetry and it’s not working out, try writing a story. If you’ve been writing stories and feel the need to take a break, try writing some poetry. You might just discover something wonderful!

Getting Motivated To Write

Hey everybody!

Yesterday I was discussing with my close relative and co-author of Inspiration Unbound, Gary Ginsburg, how I was struggling to get the motivation to work on my newest novel. I’m excited to dive in and continue to work on it and I love the idea of it, but I just can’t seem to get myself to actually write more of it. It really has nothing to do with not wanting to write that particular story, but rather my energy level to write in general.

After I spoke of my concerns, Gary suggested that I continue doing what I’ve been – writing poetry! He felt that if I continued writing ‘smaller’ things it would give me the energy and motivation to work on my novel some more. He was right! I feel ready to dive back in!

I think that the reason why Gary’s idea is so successful is because writing smaller and quicker pieces of work like poetry helps accomplish a lot of things. For one, it’s less stressful than say having to come up with ideas for a novel and making sure everything is just right. Also, writing a poem is quicker and is a great way to sink your teeth into writing without feeling like it’s weighing you down with all the effort it takes to sit down for a long period of time and work.

In addition to writing more poetry, I’ve been writing some more articles. While poetry and articles are just as meaningful as writing a novel or short story (I truly do believe this), it’s a different process and as mentioned above, less stressful. Also, writing something other than what you’ve been working on for a while, or what you’ve been thinking about, helps distract your mind and refresh your writing skills – it gives you a much needed break without taking you completely away from what you should be and love doing!

So, here’s my advice: If you’re struggling to find the motivation to work on your newest project, take a break! Try writing something else that you enjoy; something a little simpler and fun! You might just find that it’ll bring your motivation right back to life and the words of your novel right back to the page!
