Indie Block Party #7- Writing Tips

Indie-block-party-1024x717

Thanks to Fel and Dawna for hosting. The complete list of participants can be found here. Today we were to share writing tips and advice.

My tips to other writers:

  • DON’T GIVE UP
  • WRITE EVERYDAY IF YOU CAN
  • DON’T EVER LET ANYONE CONVINCE YOU THAT YOU ARE NOT A WRITER BECAUSE YOU ARE.
  • DON’T BE AFRAID TO TRY WRITING IN DIFFERENT GENRES.
  • FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF IT’S PLOTTING OR PANTSING. 

For example, I do both. I find myself plotting some of my books. With other books I was pantsing the whole thing. I’m happy doing both. It’s all up to you and how comfortable you feel when writing.

One thing I wished I had known when I started writing was that it’s okay to write in different genres. I was told by people to find a genre I was comfortable with and stick to it. I can’t do that. I love writing in the different genres I write in. I feel that if you stay in one genre too long you can become bored with it and hit a wall with the story you’re writing. It’s happened to me a few times. I find starting a story in a genre I’ve never written in before is exciting and gets the creative juices flowing again especially if I’m at a standstill with a story.

Well, this is the end of my tips and advice. Please feel free to share your thoughts and tips in the comments section. 🙂

  1. Thats great you started with don’t give up. There is so much opposition, even wtihin ourselves, more than anything else, you need to not give up. Good point!

    1. Thanks. I wanted it first because I almost did it a couple of times myself. I had friends tell me that I couldn’t give up especially if it was what I really wanted to do and was happy doing. I listened to them and to myself and knew I couldn’t give up. I love writing. 🙂
