QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Everything has seasons, and we have to be able to recognize when something’s time has passed and be able to move into the next season. Everything that is alive requires pruning as well, which is a great metaphor for endings.”
Isn’t that a great quote? Can you get what my thoughts are for the day?
THOUGHTS OF THE DAY
Summer is being shoved aside by fall, and that is the perfect metaphor for a writer’s life. Some things work. Some things we try fall flat and fail miserably. Oh well. The trick is to recognize when we should change our approach to this writing game. We are constantly adjusting, not only our writing craft, but also our approach to that craft.
Starting next week, I will only be posting three articles per week. For over two years I have posted five or more per week, but it is time to change. I need to spend more time on my novels, and I can’t do that if I continue to pound away at articles.
I am not being forced to make this change. It just feels necessary and right. And that decision is one we all have to make as we sit down to write. What feels right? What feels wrong? Should I make a change and when should I make it?
I hope the answers to those questions come to you and that the transition is a painless one for you.
TIP OF THE DAY
Sit down and review your writing plan. Are you currently on task with regards to that plan? Do you need to make a change? What kind of change would be beneficial to you? There is no reason to beat a dead horse, so if what you are doing isn’t working, then maybe you need to change your approach.
WRITER OF THE DAY

SITE OF THE DAY
That site is right here. I’m going to start devoting more time to this blog. I want to keep it to twice a week, but I want to expand it so that it will be more useful for you. Give me suggestions of what you would like to see on this blog, and if I can I will incorporate that into it. Thank you.
But I will see you next Tuesday with an expanded format. Remember, if you would like to guest blog here, just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work it out.
