Yesterday was a really productive day, thanks to a nice kick start with Ready. Set. WRITE! I took part in my first ever Twitter party, which was a lot of fun and great motivation. It was awesome to see other people plowing ahead with their stories and to know that we were all working toward a common goal at the same time. Keep up the great work, everyone! And for anybody not taking part in our summer writing incentive, I hope you're trucking along with your WIPs too!
I'll get back to churning out some words on my story in a moment, but first I wanted to share something I found both motivational and funny. One of my husband's favourite authors is Patrick Rothfuss, who wrote The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, so I had to laugh when I came across this picture of his advice to writers:
Well said, Patrick! Probably the most practical lesson in writing you'll ever get! And this guy knows what he's talking about. Both of his books weigh about as much as I do, so he's done some serious time in the writer chair. (Did anyone else happen to notice he's wearing an Island of Misfit Toys shirt in this photo? Sweet.) You can see pictures of other authors displaying their writing advice here.
Alrighty then! I'm going to listen to Mr. Rothfuss now. I'm sitting my butt down on a cushion to write. Yes, there's a cushion on my chair. Hey, cut me some slack! I'm short and I can barely reach the table to type! :D
