Quick inspiration

I came across A Wordplayer's Manifesto over at K.M. Weiland's blog, Wordplay. I read it, immediately saved it, and now I'm sharing it with everyone.

This is step one in how I'm breaking the habit of calling myself an "aspiring" writer. If you haven't yet read Chuck Wendig's "25 Things I Want To Say To So-Called 'Aspiring' Writers", then go here. Now.

Back to the Wordplayer's Manifesto.

Read it.
Love it.
Pass it on.

I'd type more, but I'm a writer who hasn't been writing. Must do something about this. Immediately.

  1. "don't slack on the hard stuff" is something i constantly have to remind myself of. Because i'm lazy and my nature wants me to slack. But slacking isn't going to get me to where i want to be

    1. I agree, 100%. I will come up with every reason possible to skip on the hard part (usually re-writing a tough scene). It's ridiculous because once I sit down to push through, I find it isn't really as hard as I had made it out to be in my head!

      Get writing! :)

  2. Also, i hadn't yet read "Things I Want To Say To So-Called 'Aspiring' Writers" and it was excellent, as usual. Time to get writing!!

  3. Ego in pocket and sit on it!
    I guess technically an aspiring writer would be someone who hasn't written a word yet.

  4. Set your stories free! That's the one I need to keep in mind :)

  5. My favorite part is: Constructive criticism: solicit, accept, manage. That can be applied to every aspect of life.

    Also, on a sidenote, I've always wanted a really old fashioned typer writer. It doesn't matter if it works (though that would be a huge bonus), but I've always wanted one to sit around for decoration.

  6. I needed the reminder on: Writing is a journey, not a destination.

    And I really need to work on building my lifestyle so that it supports time to write. (MBA classes, I'm looking at you!)

  7. Great stuff. Hahaaa, put your ego in your back pocket and sit on it. :D Nice. I love giving to and sharing with the writing community!!


I love getting comments. They're as much fun as getting real snail mail. So please, chime in and tell me what you think!
