Author Tweets of the Week (2-3)

 

 

To start off this week’s Tweets of the Week, let’s have a little bit of motivation.

 

 

Don’t forget this friends! Believe in yourself. Regardless of your walk of life, regardless of your goals in life, believe in yourself. It’s nice to have others that believe in you and support you, but you need to believe in yourself first.

 

There are constantly great #amwriting tweets from @noveliciouss. Here’s one:

 

Great line, Orson Scott! I love that. If you don’t follow @noveliciouss yet, you should. Although with 165,000 followers, I’m guessing most of you already do.

 

This Margaret Atwood quote is pretty darn square on too.

 

 

It’s so true. Most good works of writing are going to come from complete chaos and a shamble of words.

 

That’s why it’s so wonderful when readers provide meaningful feedback. It is so satisfying to have a reader take in your words and to be impacted. These two tweets about Pieces Like Pottery were wonderfully humbling and satisfying.

 

 

 

Thank you @jr_ebal! I am grateful and humbled.

 

Speaking of paths many fear to tread, this is such a mindful quote from James Finley via my brother from a different mother (and cousin) Michael Paul.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take a break today, friends. Count your breaths. Count your steps. Count your moments. Remember the preciousness of the present and embrace it. Embrace every wonderful and painful moment.

 

Did you take some time? Good, let’s huddle back up and have a chuckle.

 

 

Welcome back to our old friend and Tweets of the Week regular Tamara Thorne! Thanks for always making us laugh.

 

Now another from @noveliciouss:

 

As I said on twitter, I don’t have enough hands to count the people that tried to make me feel lousy about my writing on one hand.

Don’t worry about the haters! You’ll never satisfy them!

 

I’ll leave you this week with two thoughts of focus and encouragement.

 

Write! Write! Write! And then write again! (And write some more!)

Got that? Write!

 

I loved this last tweet.

 

Maybe it is because I have heard my father express similar sentiments about his own work, but I loved this tweet. My father has always said, “If there’s one person, just one person, that is changed for the better, than my effort has been worthwhile.”
Continue writing my friends.

Author Tweets of the Week (1-27)

 

Let’s not waste any time with the niceties and get right to it.

If you’ve read any of my stuff, you’re probably aware that I have two major pet peeves. One, I have a life goal of stopping people from incorrectly saying, “I could care less.” That makes no sense unless you’re trying to communicate that your feelings toward said item are lukewarm, which if that’s the case, then there are a hundred better ways to say that you feel so-so about something. The proper phrase is, “I couldn’t care less.”

Second, I hate, hate, hate when writers say they’re not reading anything right now because it distracts from their writing. Reading shouldn’t distract from writing anymore than your pen should distract you from writing.

Let’s begin…

 

Yes! Thank you! Agreed! 100%!

 

Now a little Friday wisdom for you.

 

 

Listen. Listen to others and listen to yourself, friends. You would be surprised how poorly most of us listen to our own minds and bodies.

 

This next one seems particularly relevant for the times.

 

 

 

Speaking of libraries…

 

 

Would you look at that?! I’m at the Chicago Ridge public library. You know what they say. You know you’ve made it once you’re in the Chicago Ridge public library.

 

Here’s a piece of inspiration from Leonard Cohen via @david_glinski:

That’s a great line. It’s so true. You can be the person you want to be, friends, whoever that may be. The only thing stopping you is the box you and those around you put you in. Learn to climb out of that box and be the way you want to be, eventually that’s what you’ll be.

 

The next post is actually a screenshot. How many times will I have to complain about Facebook’s embedding feature before they fix it and it actually works smoothly? Anyway, these next two posts both gave me a chuckle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who wouldn’t want a bookmark like that?!?! Look at how cute!

 

Let’s hear some writing advice from one of the greatest American poets.

Great quote. If you want your readers to feel something, you must feel it first, and usually 100 times more than your readers will.

 

In case you don’t want tears and you just want a laugh, though…

 

 

Why don’t people say, “Tut Tut,” anymore? Did they ever? They should have. Seems fun.

 

How long did it take you to write your first book? It took me 7 years. Hopefully it doesn’t take me 7 to write my second. In case you’re wondering, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 6.

Days, that is. 6 days?!?!

 

 

Welp, I better get cracking I guess.

 

 

Write away friends! Then where you’re done writing, write some more!
