Stop Comparing Yourself

How to Be Happy as a Writer

This week, let’s make ourselves a pact. I’ll stop comparing myself to other writers – and so will you.

Regaining Momentum

Writing after a dry period is really hard, but there’s no secret to getting back into it. There are only a few simple steps.

Learning From Those Who Came Before

We write our stories, and we do the best we can. For many of us, that means we write from perspective born of backgrounds we didn’t control, educations we weren’t aware were cheap, and information we didn’t know was dated.

Stop Thinking About Marketing

The reason we feel the need to hold baby creations up to some 30-year pro’s for comparison is because our culture teaches us to judge all art according to salability – but salability is not the point of art.

Writing Fatigue (and what to do about it)

This month is not about producing something publishable. It’s about teaching yourself to just keep writing, to ignore the inner editor, and to let yourself just spill words onto the page.

Goodbye, Stan Lee

DO YOUR WORDS

Do Your Words

“Do your words” may be the most important words ever for writers.

Here's your sign

Here’s Your Sign

Hey. Creative soul, I’m talking to you.

This is your sign not to give up.

Patience is a long, long road

Your Trajectory Is Not Fixed

Here’s a lie I’ll bet you’ve been told: “You have to figure out what you want to do before it’s too late.”

Stop wishing. Start doing.
