I do all my own writing stunts.

A little bit of funny for your Monday morning inspiration. It’s important to remember that, in writing, there’s nothing stopping you. You can write whatever you want, however you want (see: I am writing this post with a kitten chewing on my arm). The best part of writing is that you can write about things that aren’t real. Ahead-of-its-time technology, functioning relationships, mythical animals and godly powers. Whatever.the.hell.you.want.

If you can dream it, you can find a way to write it. Whatever it is. And don’t stress about “it’s been done” or “what if I don’t do it justice?” or anything else that your brain is telling you is wrong about what you’re trying to write. You are the only one who can tell you story. And yes, it may take a while, it may take a LONG while to get it right, now there’s nothing wrong in getting the framework out there. The only thing that is going to stop you from telling your story is you not getting it out there. You must start writing before you can finish writing.

There’s nothing to say that what you want to write must exist in this current time. Time is always evolving, technology is constantly evolving, so if there’s something you create for your story that seems too “unreal”, remember, people probably thought that about cell phones and the Internet once upon a time. Create whatever you need for your story to make it work.

“Every writer I know has trouble writing.” Joseph Heller

Today’s #MondayMotivation post come courtesy of the Starbucks Trenta Iced Coffee that I am only a quarter of the way through drinking. With the way my hands are shaking, I’m assuming I’m going to regret this when I finish.

It’s going to be fine.

But anyway, back to the motivation.

If you think that you’ve been struggling to write this year, I promise you’re not alone. Personally, this year has been challenging on so many levels, and it’s really made the act of writing difficult. I can think about what I want to include in #GroundhogOne until the cows come home (is that an accurate metaphor? I don’t know. I grew up in Beverly Hills, there are neither weather nor farms in that part of California), but when it comes to actually trying to write the scenes I imagine in my head? Well, a Word Document has never been so intimidating.

At the same time, you can’t let that stop you, and I’m not about to let that stop me. If writing were easy, everyone would be a writer. You have to write even when you don’t want to, even when you’re struggling to find the words. It’s only when you start searching for the words that you figure out how to get the scene out of your head and on paper.

Sometimes, people need a plan to get back into the swing of things, and I’ve decided that I’m not about to let 2017 screw me over any more than it already has. Want to know more about what I’m planning to get back into the swing of writing and end this shit-show of a year on a high note? Sign up for the #MondayMotivation Newsletter HERE. It makes it’s regularly-scheduled return to your inbox next week.

5 Ways To Use Prompts In Your Writing

Prompts-The Best Ways To Expand Your Writing

It should probably go without saying that I’m kind of a really big fan of writing prompts. I mean, come on. There are more than 300 prompts in the library and hundreds more scheduled through spring of next year. They’re too fun NOT to create.

Over the last few months, I’ve gotten a couple questions and comments from readers, blog visitors, etc., asking for permission to use the prompts on TheFakeRedhead.com. Well, here’s your no-longer-implied-yes. Yes. Absolutely yes. I write these dialogue prompts in the hopes that YOU will be inspired to both write and keep writing. You have all the permission in the world to use my prompts to inspire your writing.

Now, some of you may be asking, “If everyone’s using the same writing prompt, won’t they basically be writing the same story?”

Nope!

That’s the best part of writing prompts. A few months ago in the writing group I’m part of, the woman who runs it made a really good point about prompts. If you hand the same prompt out to a room of 30 people, you’re going to find yourself with 30 completely different stories. That’s just how it works. No one has the same brain, so no one knows your story better than you do.

So, click the Continue Reading button for five ways to use prompts in your writing, and then KEEP reading for an exciting announcement!
