– Your muse

I recently took a diving course from Margie Lawson, and that revived my writing. His system integrated the editing process into my work and thus facilitated the second, third and fourth editions. I have more ease and direction when I’m working on a manuscript. My beta readers noticed the change in my writing and said that it is more fluid and interesting.

Spending a few hours with Margie and her graduate students helped me connect some of the segments of writing between a solid first draft and a polished manuscript.

Plan time and resources to invest in yourself and your writing career.

There are many advantages to attending a course or attending a workshop.

  • learning with potential like-minded friends
  • get feedback and encouragement from other talented writers
  • Feedback can inspire your confidence
  • connect with your own writing chops

Lifestyle Relationships


1.Your relationship with Scripture, with friends, with family, with work is manifested in your body being. How are you as a person? Does your personality change with the quality of your writing? If you can understand this, you are not alone. Ask a roommate if you are not sure. I bet you have an answer that you would like to share if you have a household like mine.

Are you easy to live because your writing path is a smooth passage? This is evident in their interactions. Stressed and cynical? This can hurt the people around you while dealing with your grumpy.

2. Remember the 4 rule from my previous post here at WITS? It indicates that we have 3-4 hours at the peak of our best concentration. Let them count. If I work for an hour, I have 45 minutes of solid and productive writing. Take a little less time if your burnout requires it. See a typical writing session where I build in the break.

Then I take 5 to 10 minutes to get into my project. After a session of 30-45 minutes, I give myself 10 minutes to walk around, do a small cleaning project or go to the mailbox. This gives my body a break, but also resets the mind to move on to the next scene or the delicate section of the dialogue. Win-win!

3. My favorite exercises are walking and yoga, as they have little impact and little stress, but my exercises app also accepts cleaning the house.

True. I feel better when I added more exercise to my daily routine. Trying to move a little every hour helps me avoid pain and sullen moods, which is a good reason to go in for sports. It can also prevent you from becoming passion with the reasons why you are not writing. Also true.
