Keep Pushing!

Hey fellow readers and writers!

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but sometimes stories can be difficult to write. Also, while writers would love to feel motivated 24/7, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes we grow momentarily frustrated with the idea of working on our story, or sometimes, we don’t totally know what to write next. Instead of getting right back to working, we tend to slack off.

There’s nothing wrong with taking a break from writing – nothing at all. The problem occurs when we wait too long to jump back in. Sometimes the longer we wait to write, the harder it is to feel truly motivated.

Here are some tips that I have in order to keep your love and motivation for writing alive:

1.) Play some scenes and ideas for your story, poem, etc. in your head – This allows for you to brainstorm and get excited for the next time you decide to write. The more you think of your work, the more thrilled you will most likely become at the prospect of writing.

2.) Just open up the document on your computer or open your notebook and start writing! – Even if you don’t totally feel up to it, once you begin writing, you usually feel like continuing. Or at least, I find that the method sometimes helps me.

I’m not going to lie, I can be a fairly impatient person at times. However, I’ve learned that to write a truly good story, patience is usually necessary. I also understand that it can be hard to gather the energy to begin writing. Especially if we don’t have set deadlines, it can be easy to slip into a state of procrastination.

Just remember how important writing is to you and promise yourself not to give up. Writing may be a difficult task at times, but if you love it, it’s well worth your time.

Good luck to all my fellow writers out there!

About the Author – Education

Hey everybody! As I looked over the poll results for what you guys want to see here on my blog (thanks to those who liked and/or voted), I saw that you’d like to see more information about me and more short stories! I thought I’d start out by sharing a little about my education.

Elementary School

From first to eighth grade, I attended a public elementary school. My love for writing and reading started in the first grade. I distinctly remember tracing a letter in the carpeting in my classroom, my teacher commenting on it and how she was proud that I was practicing my letters.

I think overall, I enjoyed elementary school. I was in a school play, I had a few pretty good friends, and liked my teachers. And of course, I loved to read. I remember how much I loved whenever there were book fairs!

Middle School

Along with attending a public elementary school, I also went to a public middle school. Once again, I was quiet but had a good small group of close friends. My love for reading continued and my favorite subject was English. I was also part of some clubs including yearbook club.

High School

For the first time ever, I attended a private school. While I’m very happy for this experience, I did learn something – no matter where you go, people are pretty much the same. There were some people who were great friends and whom I really liked, and there were some people who were unkind and from whom I kept my distance.

I think high school was when my love for writing really started to turn into something. I took a creative writing class and really saw how interested I was in the subject. I also came up with a cereal idea that was inserted in the school newsletter – it never really became anything, but I was still proud of the idea.

In high school, I also got to go to New York City, which was pretty amazing. I also tried out for a play (I didn’t get the part, but enjoyed trying out) and got to experience some things that I’d never done before. I also sent a poem in somewhere and it was accepted into an anthology.

College

College was definitely one of my favorite educational experiences. While the last couple of years were difficult for me due to anxiety, I experienced a lot of amazing things.

I knew since I was in high school that I wanted to major in either English or Writing and since my college didn’t offer a major in Writing, I minored in the subject and majored in English. I thoroughly enjoyed my creative writing course and several of the other classes I took for both the major and minor. Additionally, I had a lot of great teachers and met some nice people along the way. My advisor was super supportive and I really think that the support I gained through my college education led me to be the dedicated writer I am today.

In my senior year of college, I had to take a course where we had to put together a writing portfolio. I really enjoyed this project and put a lot of effort into it. My professor was super kind and helped me improve my writing. In fact, one of the stories actually made it into my short story collection, after I did some editing and revising.

Well guys, this is my education in a nutshell! Sorry if it wasn’t too detailed; I take my privacy very seriously. I hope to continue sharing some information about myself as the days progress! Thanks for reading!

Why Rest in Piece and Abstract Clarity?

Hey everyone! With the e-book versions of both of my books being on sale this month, you might be wondering why you should be interested in maybe making a purchase. I thought I would take some time and tell you why I (in my humble opinion) think the books are so great!

Rest in Piece

Rest in Piece is a book that has it all: horror, fantasy, joy, and sadness. Additionally, the book is suitable for both adults and young adults and is a book full of creativity and imagination. The novel also offers its readers the opportunity to really try to imagine what they would do if they were in the protagonist’s shoes. After all, finding something odd in a puzzle and having to decide whether or not to be brave to save the lives of others isn’t an easy choice – especially if you’re young and don’t want to disobey the ones you love.

Abstract Clarity

Abstract Clarity is a collection of short stories for adults. The collection has five stories that are both fantastical and horrific. I really believe with all my heart that the book obtains writing that will help you think outside of the box. The stories urge its readers to really imagine what life would be like if certain events took place in the real world, instead of just being the object of our wildest fantasies. What if you could discover what dreams really were? What if you could travel in time and really make a difference by just changing one thing, all the while having in your possession something truly powerful? Could you imagine if one night you were haunted by the scariest thing possible or if an object came to life and changed the lives of everyone forever? Could you? And what if, really imagine this: what if you were sent on a mission from God to help stop something horrible from taking place? Would you accept the challenge? Would you succeed?

If any of these topics interest you – any at all – then I think that you would be quite satisfied reading Rest in Piece and/or Abstract Clarity.

Thank you for supporting my writing and please remember that my books are always available on Amazon.com and through the direct link below. In addition, the e-book versions of both books are on sale all this month of March for $2.99!
