Life time writers and challenges

The struggle of book covers and dpi.

Quotes from the Heart for Women Leaders

I sent my book in for formatting and received the digital copy. The challenges of self publishing! My cover, (which I love) is not the correct dpi for printing.

If you are not familiar with this term it means when the paperback copy is printed it is highly possible my cover photo will  not be clear.

It is a bit frustrating, because I am unable to change this cover to fit the correct parameters.

BUT as writers, we do not give up, correct? People who do not write, stand on the outside and eventually see the finished product, but they do not realize the many hours of focused work required for the book to become a finished product.

BUT to non-writers this is ok, because this is part of what we do as writers. We may become frustrated, a little angry or discouraged, but a true writer, may take a break, but we do not stop writing.

To my writing friends, when you hit any type of wall, take a short break, go for a walk, or maybe you simply need a little rest. A time will arrive when the writing project is finished and it is now in the hands of your readers.

Selah, pause, breathe deep, and press on.  ~Nancy~

and Now, The Memoir

flowers, tea, brosphrous

It is 10:15 p.m. on a Thursday evening. For the last week my blog would surface in my mind at odd times in my day.  In the middle of editing my course I begin to think about what I will write for the Life Time Writer.

I walk to the mailbox, and I begin to write a post in my head.

I wake up in the morning…well…you have the idea. It is time to write this post!

It is 10:15 p.m and all of “other” writing is off my desk. I am sitting before my screen signed in to the Life Time Writer page. Much has happened since my last post.

The Relationship Conference is growing as we set up conferences in 3 locations in the USA and a 4th as a global conference.

This journey began with writing. Writing 3 sentences on a page, that became 3 topics for a conference. All writing…

An online course flowed out from the 3 sentences on a page.

A book focused on community, is partially written and flowing out of the 3 sentences on a page.

AND FINALLY…the memoir is in the beginning stages.

As a life time writer my life has had moments of pain, struggles and hardships. Yet, there is always a rainbow waiting for me on the other side.

As I write this post I am reminded that this writing story of mine, is the beauty that unexpectedly arrives in the middle of life and my writing.

Words for my readers; Don’t forget to look for the joy in life. Look for the beauty and enjoy the writing journey.

Be determined to become a life time writer. The world is waiting for you and your words.

 

Write, Write, Write, and More Writing

Writing in different styles is a challenge.

Lately I describe my life using one word. Write, write, write and write again. Have you ever experienced a time of stretching with your writing?

Currently my writing requires different styles of writing. Everything from writing short copy for marketing, to writing an online course, writing a blog post, and a book. I am finding because of the diversity of the style it requires me to have a discipline mind.

Do you ever struggle with writing in different styles? For me I am finding to break my writing projects into days. On the day I am working on the course I do not work on the book. The next day I work on the book.

Today’s world of writing is changed forever.  How about you do you have suggestions that may assist others in our changing world of writing. Go to the comment section and share with us.

Thanks in advance for joining us and sharing.

The Book is Calling Our Name

The struggle of writing requirements, overrides our desires.

files

I begin my morning scanning through the files on my computer. I am looking for a folder with a list of characters for a fiction book.

I am unable to find the character sheet, but I locate the outlines for other books I am working on.

I scan the memoir, the community book, the outline for a future course and an idea sheet for writing topics.

I stop at the community book folder and long to open the file and work on this book today. It is calling my name. It is calling me, please spend time with me.

BUT

this is not to be.

Instead I close the file and move back into focusing on the online course I am writing and designing on the topic of a quiet heart.

Then…..after a few hours I will move back to the book writing that is calling my name.

Write on my friends, do what needs to be finished then move into the file that is calling your name.
