Wisdom Wednesday: Use It Or Lose It

Posted on: October 26, 2011

By now you should be knee deep into your writing – even if it’s just practice. We have come to the point where it’s time to talk less and write more. (Hence one of the reasons there was no blog written yesterday.) There is only so much I can say to get you moving. Yes, I am The Motivational Rockstarr. Yes, I rock! I even roll! 🙂 But when it comes down to the nitty gritty you have to do the leg work. I could write it for you…but then I’d have to charge you. 🙂

But why hire someone else to do what you already know you are capable of doing?

Strengthening your writing skills is the same as strengthening anything else: your body, mind, language (first, second, or thirty-third), etc; if you don’t use it, you will most certainly lose it! Don’t put your gift at risk of being buried in an early grave. You may not be the next Edgar Allen Poe or Mark Twain, but you’re not supposed to be. They were them. You are you. So get to work being the best you that you can be!

And if you need assistance with strengthening your writing, allow me to offer a couple of suggestions.

First, there’s this lovely challenge that I enter every year. November is National Novel Writing Month and every year the lovely – and quite humorous – folks at NaNoWriMo host a 30-day novel writing challenge. Essentially, you are to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days! (That’s less than 2,000 words a day! Come on, you can do it!) Even if you’re not a novel writer, it’s great for stretching your creativity and may even open up some other faculties you didn’t even know resided in you. The challenge begins November 1st (that’s on a Tuesday; something to “think” about…get it?!) and registration is open now! To sign up (yes, it’s FREE! They ask for donations, but that’s totally on you.) visit the link below.

Second, (and yes, this is a shameless plus, but to your benefit) you may contact me directly about my writing program. I offer one-on-one coaching, training, and mentoring to those who a) want to become writers, b) want to become BETTER writers, or c) have been dared to be a writer! Maybe you need some direct, personal guidance, but don’t feel like paying a salary’s worth of money just to get it. Whatever your reasons, I will be more than happy to assist you. For more information about TMR Coaching and to sign up visit the link below:

I’ll return Friday to check on your progress. Remember, use it or lose it! Now go create some magic!
