Tips from Famous Writers

I came across this on twitter today and wanted to share: 23 Tips from Famous Writers for New and Emerging Authors

My favorite was from Doris Lessing--

Advice to young writers? Always the same advice: learn to trust our own judgement, learn inner independence, learn to trust that time will sort the good from the bad-- including your own bad.

There have been times where I'm writing, and my brain is editing as I'm doing it. So I'll stop and try to figure out a better way to say the sentence I was about to write down. I don't know about anyone else but this really holds me up. I've been trying to break myself out of it by just pushing past the judgement and just write down what I was just thinking. Progress is slow, but it's getting better!

So to anyone out there that writes, what advice would you pass onto another emerging writer?

no work!, No tea

I hate being sick!

I'm sure no one enjoys being sick, but I really hate being sick. Especially when it entails having a sore throat and coughing. Not only can I not sing, but I can't do much talking!

I also don't know how to just not do things when I'm sick. I've always been a productive person, and when I have to sit and do nothing I feel so unaccomplished. So during this week of my sickness, I've had to work a few shifts here and there, and I've also had to keep up with my graduate school assignments (almost done!). But I've also been trying to work on my graphic novel script and a couple of other WIPs, only to find myself exhausted.

Well no duh Murjani.

So, I've had to swallow my pride and work on them when I can which is hard because I wish I could sit and write all day. But it's just not possible right now. So, I've been resting and drinking lots of tea with honey. I'm getting better but I still have more days to go ^_^

Trip Report-- The Bahamas

Hey guys!!

First, I hope everyone’s Christmas and New Year holiday was great and that everyone had gotten some cool presents. The past 7 months have been some of the busiest I’d ever experienced, with graduate school and working 2 jobs; really 3 jobs when I had a dog-walking client thrown in the mix.

But I had found some time to travel with a friend on her vacation to The Bahamas so here’s some pictures that I had taken. This was my 2nd time traveling to The Bahamas, but the first time that I've left on a cruise out of Baltimore. Those of you who are my friends on facebook will be seeing them again for a second time, apologies.

NaNoWriMo Day 30

I totally fail with not updating as much here as I've been doing on twitter =( I've been writing at night right before bed, and then realizing that I've stayed up too late and need to get to bed. So since writing on twitter is faster, I've been updating there. But in the end, I've written about 36,000 words, which doesn't win me the challenge, but it's a good start!

Yeah I'm kinda bummed about it, but in addition to this, I've also been working 2 jobs and have graduate school homework almost every night. So the fact that I was even able to get that far says a lot =) So yes, this was fun and I'm definitely doing it next year, and I'll win it =) Now, what I've already written will be undergoing a major overhaul. Oh man, I can't even imagine thegreymoon's face if she ever saw the 51 pages I've typed *face palm*

But writing it had helped me map out some things, like my main characters and my villains. But as far as the plot... yeah I'm gonna head back to the drawing board for that. 

In other news, me and a friend are heading on a cruise next week. We set sail on Sunday and I'm so excited!! But of course I'll be missing a week from school, which means I have to turn in 2 weeks worth of work to my teachers, and that blows =_= So I have been just doing homework and more homework. But in a couple of days, I'll be relaxing on the sun deck of the boat and on the beaches of The Bahamas *cheers*

Later people!
