Boost: The First Taste of Sea · 3:31am June 6th

Please read this story. It's from a contest I participated in on the Quills and Sofas Speedwriting server. Silent Whisper is a good author and this story haunted me afterwards.

TThe First Taste of Sea
It was dark. Somewhere, beyond the cave, beyond her cage, it was raining. And the tide was coming in.

Riot Prevention · 9:42pm June 5th

As long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention.

NaNoWriMo Day 3 Tip: Write Something Awful · 7:58pm Nov 3rd, 2019

Accept that what you're writing won't be perfect. It might not even be good, and that's okay.

I had to put up a poster at work that says "The perfect is the enemy of the good." I was so worried about quality that I couldn't write quickly enough. NaNoWriMo kicks that up a notch.

NaNoWriMo Day 2 Tip: Write Daily · 2:57am Nov 3rd, 2019

Even if it's just a sentence, write daily.

The biggest part of NaNoWriMo is just getting into the habit of writing daily. Even if you don't reach your daily or monthly goal, gaining the habit of writing daily is a victory.

NaNoWriMo Day 1 Tip: Writing Sprints · 6:00am Nov 1st, 2019

Talk less, write more. Close Discord, put down the phone, and start a writing sprint. Full-screen your editor, set a timer, and start writing. Don't stop until time is up. Don't edit. Don't stop to think. Just keep writing.

Write.

Write.

Write.

When your 7/10/15 minutes is up, take a note of your word count. If you're planning another sprint, take a quick break to do any of the things that you need to do. Edit, chat, get a drink.

Feghoot Fun · 5:56am Jun 8th, 2019

I’ve been working on a novel since last November.  I got some feedback and tips for it at EFNW. Since then, my progress, at least as measured by word count, has been pretty well blocked while I work on revisions and plotting.  I’ve been aching to write more. I found an excuse.
