A Few Words that Will Help You Write

Genre: Non-Fic Writing Related

 

There are some of you who know how much I get crippled with ‘Writing-Self-Doubt’ as well as ‘Writers-Block’.

Well, I’ve found a little trick I’d like to share that has certainly got me off my arse and tapping on the keyboard. And they are:

… 2 plain A4 pieces of paper stuck on the wall opposite my writing space with 2 pieces of advice…

Just Write!

&

Write for You!

That’s it! No fancy lettering, no precise alignment either; just simply 2 phrases I picked up* that I would give a try to kick-start my literary engine…. And they do!

The message is this:

“Do whatever you have to make yourself write. Because every day of procrastination is a waste; especially when you know that you have the goods in you to write”

* Thanks go to Kellie Elmore for ‘Just Write!’ and Artfully Adelie for ‘Write for You!’ *

They inspired me – maybe I can inspire You! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Well hello, Victoria. I know you’re most definitely busy, but I wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. I’m not sure if it’s really your cup of tea, but I love you and your blog, so I wanted to nominate you regardless. If you have an enormous amount of spare time or a terrible case of insomnia, you can read my post.

      Regardless, I hope all is well with you, dear friend! ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Hey, Thank You so, so much.. I’ve left a reply on your site forgetting even to congratulate you – I’ve posted the reply’s in the wrong places! Congrats Adelie, you are such an angel who’d words Are touching people and you fully deserve such recognition; it’s that light in you that is shining ๐Ÿ™‚ which will always continue to โค

        Now I'm going to put the reply's in their correct destinations! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Hello angel! My late reply is down to life-disasters, which I know you understand. But, I am relatively recovered so hereโ€™s what I want to say (and Iโ€™ll reply to your other comments separately) ๐Ÿ™‚ In this instance, honesty is the best policy, so here goes (donโ€™t hate me!).. I am utterly touched and was incredibly happy that you chose me too for the Liebster Award.

        However much I would Love to stick that award on my site โ€“ who wouldnโ€™t? โ€“ the problem is that my blog is so story-telling and writing orientated that my readers wouldnโ€™t want to read my content that go with the rules: I feel like such a mean mare, I really do and I am so sorry to do this. But Iโ€™d rather be honest with you than do the disservice of accepting it and not carrying out the stipulations, it wouldnโ€™t be blog-etiquette and most of all, fair to you and everyone.

        Youโ€™re an utter sweetheart and Iโ€™m delighted you did this for me and I have already said a silent โ€˜Thank Youโ€™ in my heart: I just cannot accept it while being unable to follow all of it through. Iโ€™m sorry โ€“ to myself too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But, I appreciate it and know in my heart I have won an award which I Thank You for! โค

        I hope you are okay: And I had to smile at your consecutive influx of award nominations โ€“ but it shows just how much you and your blog is loved, by myself included in the bunch ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't know how to endโ€ฆ I guess with a lousy apology and a big, grateful Thank You ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope your okay with this. Much love as always, Victoria ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

        1. Hello, Victoria!
          Don’t you dare worry about declining the award- which you did so with such politeness. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re truly too kind, and I felt somewhat out of my league nominating an author of your caliber, but I did so anyway because I wanted you to know how much I love and admire you and your writing. โค I completely understand why the post wouldn't quite mesh with the content of your blog, and I really appreciate you being so kind as to explain this. You always write with such dignity and grace. I had to laugh though at your multiple comments floating around my blog- I hope you don't mind! ๐Ÿ™‚ It's just nice to see that I'm not the only one with technological confusion! ๐Ÿ˜›
          I sincerely hope that your life disasters have settled down, and please know that I am here for you, in any way necessary. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I hope your burdens are lifting. I was worried when I didn't see a post from you for a while. I'm glad to know you're still here! ๐Ÿ˜€
          I send all my love and hope that all the ugly clouds hanging over you have floated away. โค โค โค

          1. It’s been an awful couple of weeks if I’m honest and a whole week went by I hadn’t wrote a story. People are people, relationships of all manners can break down and people can say and do stupid things. I’m still trying to pick up the pieces and soldier on. It’s hard though. Thanks for offering me a shoulder ๐Ÿ™‚

            I’m amazed you think my writing is that good! Happy, but amazed! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just wish I could write consistently and basically not have a personal life – that isn’t going to happen though! Thanks so much for thinking so highly of my writing. First time on Sunday I read some of my story’s to my Parent’s, as they have never heard any of them before, the response was quite positive.

            I still thank you for nominating me for the award. Even though I couldn’t accept it, I know it in my heart someone thought enough of me and my work to give it to me ๐Ÿ™‚ My clouds will lift in time and I just wish sometimes things could work out for the better. It’s hard, but time will heal. You’re a wonderful girl and Thank you for giving a damn, it’s nice to feel cared about โค ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Me again! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Credit where credit’s due Adelie. The notion to stick those words up really does work! That’s great you are going to print the post off and use it for a kick-start. I’m glad you liked my message behind the post (that I did come up with!). Anything that will help us write with consistency and on dark days, are useful, so I’m glad I could throw you back some inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚
