Welcome to Pearson Report.
I am participating in the 2015 A to Z Challenge.
Yes, I will be adhering to my THEME Calendar.
Vell… I laughed and realized we all have funny stories when it comes to our parents and their wisdom in selecting “the perfect” name for their little darlings.
My dear pal Carole Reid gets the prize for a near miss - though I do think Queenie is rather… hmmm… regal! Yeah, that’s it, regal! LOL (I wonder if anyone, in her inner circle, calls Queen Elizabeth, Queenie… just wonderin’.)
Here’s Carole’s comment, just in case you missed it! (Click or Zoom in)
OKAY… HERE WE GO…
Today, I’m going to shed some light on WRITING. (Odd isn’t it, this word begins with W… hmm… wonder what that’s all about?)
Here’s what I’ve learned along the way.
YOU HAVE TO DO IT YOURSELF - the writing that is!
Having an ideal reader (that’s Stephen King’s term and I like it, so I’m using it, so there) is very helpful. (In my case, I have an Ideal Listener.) What’s an ideal reader/listener? - someone who doesn’t bullshit you about what you’ve written. If it sucks, they let you know.
It pays to hire professionals. (Don’t rely on the goodwill of talented friends, it’s not nice!)
Do not bore your friends with your writing ambitions. They won’t take you serious until your first book is published. That’s a fact!
Jump in with both feet. Then, you might actually land and stay upright. I teeter and I totter but I’m still standing.
But the most important thing I learned along the way….
There are no short cuts. Daily word count equals book. You must write daily. If you don’t, well, do the math.
Well, what do you want? More… okay, this post is a teaser! How's that!
Are you working toward a goal - writing or otherwise?
