WRITER'S TIP


ONE OF THE BEST TIPS I'VE READ IS: TO NEVER TAKE A SECOND FROM WRITING TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL, TEXT, SOCIAL MEDIA, ETC., BECAUSE THAT ONE SECOND BECOMES AN HOUR OR WORST OF ALL, YOU DECIDE YOU WILL FINISH WRITING TOMORROW AND THEN TOMORROW BECOMES THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW AND SO ON.


BUT WHAT IF YOU DECIDE TO CHECK SOCIAL MEDIA ANYWAY, ARE YOU DOOMED TO LOSE VALUABLE WRITING? TIME THAT COULD DELAY YOUR BOOK BY DAYS OR MONTHS FROM BEING READY FOR PUBLICATION. ONE SIMPLE SOLUTION: SET YOUR ALARM ON YOUR PHONE FOR FIVE OR TEN MINUTES. PAT YOURSELF ON YOUR BACK AND GET BACK TO WORK.


I'D LIKE TO WRITE MORE BUT MY TIMER JUST WENT OFF AND I PROMISED SOME OF MY READERS TO HAVE MY NEXT BOOK DONE BY NEXT SUMMER.

Had a great time at my book signing last month meeting lots of wonderful people. Thanks to all who came out or just stopped by on a beach day to see what was going on. 🐞
