Now, is the time for all writers, would-be or already published, to come to the aid of themselves.
Have a happy Friday, blog people, and don’t forget to practice writing, whether today or over the weekend. No magic drug – like testosterone for an athlete – will come along to help you become the world’s greatest writer.
No powerful pill will supercharge your word processing program so that all you have to do is put your fingers on the keyboard and out will come majestic sentences or phrases. Nothing you can inject will help you produce a great text or interesting message for your social page status post.
You have to keep at it; keep on writing. And weekends are a God send. A great time to sit down and fill your writing quota for the week, as I have said in this space before. You may have set a goal of turning out a page or two pages or twenty pages over a week.
Saturday morning is an especially good time. Especially if you have a family, like one with growing children. Kids are usually occupied with TV cartoons or video games at that time of the week, so sneak off to the word processing program.
I am writing this on a Friday morning, which is a good time for me. Actually, early every weekday morning, I have found, is a good time. I’ve been getting up early for some reason, and can’t get back to sleep. So, I do head to my computer, which is near my bedside, and tap the keys.
Which has worked out well for me because I have had to rewrite and proof my novel, “Jackson Flats.” I believe I finally have just about completed that project and can begin the process of having it published. I am crossing my fingers, arms, legs and whatever else to make sure that happens.
Work on your writing. Whenever you can, whether it’s best for you early in the day or late. Or even during the noon hour, if you have time.
Such work will pay off in great dividends.
