We are all going through strange times, but I’ve been inspired to see how many people are adapting and still finding ways to communicate online and build new ways of operating their businesses. I hope you are all safe and well. I’ve been working on two new books. I have a contemporary romance book launching next year with my new American publisher and two other complete manuscripts that are out for submission. In today's post I'll be talking about my writing inspiration.
Hello everyone. Have you found it hard to stay creative during world events and lockdown? At the start of isolation, I found it very difficult to be creative and chatted to others online who were feeling the same. I started a writing buddy system or writing sprint in my book group, to encourage people to keep on top of their writing deadlines and it actually helped me to get back into my writing groove too. #writing #writers #procrastination
I have a huge list of work to be done in a short timescale and this does overwhelm me sometimes, so I use social media planners and lists to keep myself focussed, so that I can visually see what needs to be done. I also break tasks down into more manageable jobs and find them quicker to complete.
Hi everyone. Happy new week. I hope you're all well and coping during lockdown. I've been writing my 10th book and running my writing buddy sessions in Lizzie's Book Group. It's really helping me to get words onto paper and I've managed over 30k, so far. It's exciting to hear of the progression of everyone else's work too. How are you all? I thought I'd share some funny or positive quotes to make us all smile today. #quote #quotes #inspiration #funny #memes #books
