Mike and Molly showing how it is for writers with humor part 3

Dear Readers,

Here is another mike and molly that I can relate to.

I thought it was funny that she was trying to write and the sound kept bothering her. I don't know about other writers but there are certain things that I can't handle to hear or it takes my out of my story.

I listen to music while I write - only instrumental, or soundtracks with no words. Anything else is a problem. My phone makes sounds for every app - telling me something is going on in the world around me. It use to bother me but now I can ignore it.

Every writer needs to find there bubble of quiet or inspiration and stay focused. Try to get as much writing done in that window of time as possible before the world comes and claims you once again.

Have a great creative day.

Mike and Molly showing how it is for writers with humor part 2

Dear Readers,

I found another episode that I like from Mike and Molly.

I do not have writer's block, it is more life. I have kids and home to run. I am also a photographer and artist. Sometimes I put my writing on the back burner. I thought this was funny though. I look at my computer and then I look at the laundry or dishes and I do what needs to be done to take care of my family.

Sometimes I have to sit down at my computer and write. I have to ignore the dishes, laundry, and other small things that need to get done. I did find that if I use lists I can still get things done. I write what I want to happen in the book so I can sit down and write anytime and anywhere. I also make  a list of things that need to be done for the day. It helps and laughing at her antics helps too. Have a great creative day.

Mike and Molly showing how it is for writers with humor part 1

Dear Readers,

I do not know how many of you are writers. I do not know how many of you watch the show Mike and Molly. However, I have to say that I find that show funny and it makes it easier to laugh at the things that have happened to me as a writer.

So I had an experience similar to this. As a writer just starting out and trying to get my name out there, I did a few local book signings. I called friends "Don't let me sit here by myself" and they came. I did have the support of local tribal college and some of the professors so I did sell some books. Getting up and talking about my book was a little intimidating and then sitting behind a table to sign books and hoping someone finds your book interesting. Whew!

I found deep breaths help and to have a passion for what you write. Remember there are going to be readers who find what you create is interesting, you just have to find them.

To all my fellow writers: keep writing and good luck. More to come of Mike and Molly episodes that I could relate to as a writer. Have a great creative day.
