It’s Easter break for some, but for many of us, that means cramming in as much writing as possible in a bid to round off some writing projects. Here are three hot drinks (and a few snack ideas) to help with the late night writing, and nary a coffee or pastries in sight.
What now? I’m asked by these writers. Should I give up on this writing dream, because, clearly, writing and the writing industry itself is not meant for the mentally stable.
The truth about writing a book is that it is midway between the mythical version (the ones we’re sold in movies and books, and in the public’s imagination), and the deranged reality.
There’s no better time for dreaming big dreams than when the pressure is off. So get out your notepad and do some dreaming.
My definition of a successful writer: those who work on their craft consistently, and never give up on their writing dream, even as the rejection pile threatens to overload their inbox. They’re successful, because they don’t give up.
