3 Ways to Breathe New Life into your Writing
Of late, not a great deal of ‘hardcore’ writing has taken place at Virtually All Sorts. I’ve chilled out for a couple of weeks and in that time, an amazing thing happened…
Well a few amazing things happened really but these are what kicked it all off:
I hooked up with a friend one night.
She had asked for a chat about the best way to approach getting her book(s) published, knowing that I’ve published a few ebooks myself. She’s in a similar position to mine with Fizzle & Wizzle (my children’s book series) and boy, did I need that chat. Perhaps a bit naively I thought it would be plain-sailing with F&W. I really believe in my children’s series and that’s why I was convinced it would be funded and in print by now… but never, ever give up!
Anyhow, our chat gave me a renewed vigour to give it all a kick back into touch. Not only that, but while kicking F&W back into touch, I came up with yet another idea for a book and started brainstorming that too! A completely different genre. It’s so true that when you step away for however long, you then come up with lots of ideas and your ideas just keep flowing!… 🙂
So, after this lovely chat, we got our heads together for our respective projects, made firm plans and then my friend popped her shades on, declaring that the future was so bright and I toddled off, my writing box precariously balance between my elbow and my hip while I coaxed it into my car boot. It could have ended in tears, but thankfully it didn’t…
I’ll soon be working on a funding campaign for F&W, but I’ve decided to dedicate more time to focus on #TheNextBig thing before I dive into my new book idea, and then of course there’s my wonderful blog ~ content writing, reading, sharing, promoting. It all takes time but I really do love it!
So although not much hardcore writing did take place over the summer, quite a bit of brainstorming and revisiting did!
So have you worked out the 3 things you can do today to breathe new life into your writing?
Get together with a like-minded friend, brainstorm, make a plan.
