How to Thrive on the Writer's Road


Staying Motivated: Tips to Keep Going!

Aunt Kristina recently asked for tips on how the heck writers can keep motivated and keep trying to get published when we face rather daunting odds (and plenty of rejection along the way.) The process can be tough! I'll provide more details over the next few weeks, but here's a quick list of things that help keep me motivated:

  1. Writing Classes

  2. SCBWI/Writing Conferences

  3. Critique Groups

  4. Writing Books--Inspiration, Craft, and Writing Exercises

  5. Multiple Projects, Multiple Genres

  6. Writing Retreats

  7. Motivational Tricks, Rewards, and Gimmicks :)

  8. Writing some things that AREN'T for sale--Writing for me

  9. Volunteering

  10. Recharging: Reading, Resting, and Refilling

  11. Having a Dedicated Reader (such as a husband, best friend, or a book-crazy kid--someone who will love your writing even if no one else will take a look at it)

  12. Goals: Submitting, Submitting, Submitting

This is such a great topic. Thanks for the suggestion, AK!
