How to Thrive on the Writer's Road


Notes to Start a Writer's Week (a day late)

  1. Inspiration CAN be found in Disney films. For ex., didn't the fish in Finding Nemo provide the important inspirational quote, "Just keep writing, just keep writing...."

  2. You let the kids get a puppy because he would be good for them. And you're going to leverage that into MASSIVE inspiration for one of your next books. Really.

  3. Balance is overrated.

  4. Exercise is also overrated, unless it involves walking the dogs.

  5. Yes, dogs are capable of mind control. Have you ever looked into those soulful brown eyes?

  6. Yes, everyone on your Christmas list wants books for Christmas, but no, they don't necessarily want the books you've been wanting to read. I'm just not sure your 5-year-old nephew is ready for Lauren Myracle or Libba Bray. SkippyJonJones is a better choice, even if you have been wanting to read that, too.

  7. Is it ethical to buy someone a book for Christmas and read it first?

  8. Okay, Christmas holidays are approaching, you have a trip planned, and you hate to travel...but think of it as a character research experience.

  9. No, you don't have anyone to watch your dogs yet. Give them the car keys and they'll be fine.

  10. What? The puppy? No, he would never chew up everything in the house while you were gone. No, that is not a good reason to stay home, all alone with the dogs, baking Italian cream cake and mulling cider, reading a pile of good books, writing without interruptions....Hmm.

I'm glad you published this week's list. I was looking for it yesterday! Baking and reading and writing and cuddling with a puppy: definitely the more appealing option.
