I've Got to PUSH!

I've been really trying to get stories out there, but time hasn't been on my side. 

I love editing the YouTube videos, but sometimes it becomes such a chore, especially when it gets in the way of writing. 

I know it takes time, but it's been moving slowly. And I need more subscriptions. I know it's hard to ask for them, plus, when I watch videos I forget to like sometimes and have to go back. Even subscriptions. I go back to the content creator, but forget to subscribe. 

There are times I look at my Word document longingly, wanting to get into it and work on it, but I know I'm going to be interrupted. And I know all the things I've tried to combat that, but there are times when it's just not easy. 

I'll be physically tired, and mentally it takes a big hit. Emotionally plays a bit into the equation, as well. 

I know this are all things that most creators go through. Whatever the art form you choose to drop into the sentence. It just happens, and it depends on…

Draw From Life

Image
When writing it's best to draw on inner feelings and events. Not only can it heal the writer, but on a deep level others can relate.

Gary and I talk about drawing from within on this episode.

Be True and it Will Resonate

Image
When you write, it's important to write from your heart. A story can be done over and over and each one will be like a copy of the other. But if you inject an inner story into the mix, it will stand on it's own. 

There may be a scene that's taboo, maybe the reader will be thinking, I'd never do that! when inside they know it's something they'd very well do. It resonates. 

It doesn't mean the character thinking the way they do is a bad person for doing what they do, or thinking the way they do, in a story. It only means the character is representing the fact that there are real people in this world that think differently from others. 

Maybe the character sees a homeless man and thinks a certain way. Maybe a homeless person attacked her mom as they were walking through a park when they were younger. Maybe they have a world view on the subject. 

Whatever the case may be, that character has a reason they react to the world you are creating the way they do. It's…

Been so Busy

It's been a bit busy after coming off of vacation. Work should be slowing a bit, but it's going faster because people are off, and it hasn't fully slowed. 

The next two weeks should be slower, just before school starts, but then it's full swing once again. 

Even so, I've been getting in more writing than ever. Over the vacation I've realized a few things and adjusted. 

Took a break from the videos, as well. More will be coming very soon. 

It may look like I'm on social media less, and that's probably because I have been. I do not want to just post things that aren't relevant. Plus, the time wasted on there is time I could be creating. 

The whole reason I had started social media is after listening to a podcast, and other sources, that said it is wise to get your voice out there and build up as you throw your stories out to the wild for consideration. 

I have gained great friends, but, as with everything else, there is always the possibility of negative in…
