Needless to say I've been unmotivated and took my site down. I have however been on a mission to learn all I can about writing since it's something I loved and done since I was a child (only in the sense of personal journaling - but I do enjoy it very much). Anywho I bought a book a few years ago but never got around to reading until two days ago, the author credits her confidence and significant improvement as a write to "Write for your Life" imagine my excitement as I hunted and found this book yesterday.
I stayed up much of the night reading the book and while I haven't done the exercises I will today as I prepare to read the book for the second time.
It's simplicity is attractive and made me even more interested in finishing the book. The ideas, suggestions and exercises are practical. I've come to the conclusion that in order for me to write my blog successfully I needed to be a better writer, prob take a class or write things people are interested in or be more likable or more social, etc the list goes on. But as I read this little precious book I started to realize that those were all stories I told myself because I'm afraid and don't believe I'm good enough, among other things.
I may never write a book who knows - but I'm more motivated and excited than I've been in quite a while. I've sent out 20 text messages with screenshots of the book this morning to friends whom are interested in writing professionally because I believe this book will benefit them.
I don't know what your goal is for looking up this book but I want to assure you it's not a waste of money. When you finish reading this book I know you'll walk away with something - it's not that this book offers new and unheard of ideas but it's the honesty and simplicity in which the book is presented that makes you want to listen. And I never review the books I purchase here (and I purchase a few a week) because I'm always afraid my review may not be good but here I am doing the exact thing I'm afraid of because I really do believe you'll benefit in some way from "Write For Your Life"
If your writing life is suffering, do the exercises. They'll take you over that hump.
