It’s been over a month since we’ve enjoyed the beloved Author Tweets of the Week together. Sorry about the long break in this series!

This is a great place to start. There is no better time to write than right now. Remember to write today friends!
"The most important thing in writing is to have written. I can always fix a bad page. I can't fix a blank one." – Nora Roberts #amwriting

Great advice from Nora Roberts, and thank you @RyderHClancy for sharing. If you don’t write it, you have nothing. There’s nothing to edit. Even if what you’ve written is garbage, it’s still better than a blank page. Keep writing!

Speaking of editing, I thought this graphic from @byMorganWright was on the nose. Writing a book, or a story, or an essay never goes as planned, does it? It always feels like it will, but it rarely (if ever) does. Finishing any writing project takes perseverance. As my father used to say, it takes sticktuitiveness. It’s not going to be smooth sailing, it won’t be a perfectly paved path, so be patient and persevere. You’ll get there! You’ll finish the project you’re working on! Keep up the hard work!

There’s at least 60-some of you that are excited about my upcoming book on creative writing. I’m excited too! I’m hoping it will be available for preorder in the next 2-3 weeks. Send me an email if you want more info. Keep your eye out for the release soon. I think you’ll love it. Early drafts have received really great feedback. People are saying it’s inspirational and very helpful for writers. Can’t wait to share it with you and hear your thoughts!
If rich people don't own private libraries with bookshelves that are secret passage ways to more bookshelves, what are they even doing???

I don’t even have much to say on this one. It speaks for itself. Have truer words ever been spoken?
Be an artist if you want to be an artist. You're the only one in the way of that.

Love this. Writing is one of the only professions you can simply become just by doing it. You can become a writer just by sitting down and writing. You can become an artist just by creating art. I’m an attorney. I couldn’t just say I’m an attorney now and start practicing law. I also have an engineering background. I couldn’t just say, “Hey guys, I’m an engineer now!” and start soldering away on circuits.
But guess what? You can do that with writing. Isn’t it great? The only thing stopping you from being a writer today is you. Don’t get in your own way.

Have you noticed a theme today? Write! Practice writing!

I loved this. Made me chuckle. @byMorganWright making the Author Tweets of the Week twice this week. Well done!
"Sometimes you just have to appreciate where you are. You came a long way and you're still learning and growing. Be proud of yourself."

Love this tweet from NBA star Andre Drummond. Take time to appreciate who you are and how far you’ve come. Smile today. Smile at yourself. You deserve it.
You work hard friends. Be proud of yourself! I’m proud of you!
Happy writing! Be kind to each other. Have a good weekend.
