I woke up Saturday morning thinking about future articles. I’m a writer, and although there are times I would love to turn off my brain, most of the time I am quite happy that it is always coming up with new ideas for articles and novels. This is what I do. I plan on being successful at it, and I plan on doing anything I have to do to succeed. I don’t have the luxury of forty more years of writing. I hear the clock ticking and I’m responding to the tick.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
About two months ago I decided that I needed to take weekends off. Believe me when I say it was extremely hard, for the reasons I mentioned above. However, it is the best decision I have made in a very long time. When I come back on Mondays I am rested and eager, and I can carry that eagerness through to Friday, knowing I’ll have two days off to again rest.
Make sure you take time for you during the week. Your writing will be better because you did.
TIP OF THE DAY
If you schedule your day of writing, and I would hope that you do, then also schedule in some down time during the day. I make sure I get up once each hour and walk the garden, or do some stretching or yoga. I believe this is vitally important for writers to do.
NEW FEATURE OF THE DAY
If you are following this on my website, www.williamdhollandauthor.com, and I hope you are, then you’ll notice in a day or so a new page…..Book Recommendations….or something similar. There I will keep adding books that I have read that I think are exceptional. There will be a list for casual readers and a list for writers who want some resource material to help them with writing. If you have recommendations for the list please pass them on to me.
ARTICLE OF THE DAY
I’m starting a new series of articles on HubPages called The Writer’s Mailbag. There I will answer the questions that people ask me during the week. You might find it helpful, and if you have questions again, forward them to me and I’ll answer them when I can.
CONTEST OF THE DAY
The first annual Book Pipeline Contest is underway with a deadline of September 15th. This is a chance to get your manuscript noticed by movie people, so check it out here.
THAT’S ALL, FOLKS!
Yes, I will mention my new novel, Resurrecting Tobias, and if you would like to purchase it you can do so on my website www.williamdhollandauthor.com. It is available on Kindle and as a paperback through Amazon. If you should purchase it I would ask you to leave a review when you have time.
Thanks a lot my friend, and have a great week of writing.
