HARO Writing Tips, part 5

Hi writers,
Here is a new batch of interesting writing tips, more HARO advice with special inspiration clues! This is the page to bookmark for days when you’d be tempted to go to my friend Laura Jayne’s blog, http://desdevdys.blogspot.com/ and sink into despondency. After you take this advice, then you’ll want to go to her blog, http://picturespoetryprose.blogspot.com/ to celebrate.

“If you don't have a publisher yet, say out loud, ‘I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for finding the PERFECT publisher for my book, thank you!’ That gets your own Guardian Angel involved in assisting you, and they are only allowed to assist if you request assistance.” Tom T. Moore, http://www.thegentlewaybook.com/ .

“Lucid dreaming, or the ability to become consciously aware while in the dream state, is a fascinating, complex and reality bending subject. My advice to writers is simply this: if stuck, pay attention to your dreams!” Robert Waggoner, of the recently released, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self (Moment Point Press, 2009).

Sometimes I write about why I don’t want to write about whatever I need to write, which, of course, gets me writing about it. The blank screen or blank page disappears and then I am writing. I guess that you could call that “bitching to inner-self.” Jill Nussinow, http://www.theveggiequeen.com/

“Create a writer’s resume -- sometimes called a functional resume -- which differs from a traditional resume by listing your experience, skills, publications, and clients by category rather than chronologically. Or add a publications list (if you use a traditional resume) that includes the titles and other bibliographical information of your published works as well as links where they can be found. “ From Michele Dagle, Writer-Editor, Editorial Studio michele@editorialstudio.com http://editorialstudio.com/

Craft: Writers write. In the old days that meant many paper files filled with pieces, parts, thoughts and such. Some of us kept them in a writer’s journal. Today, the writer’s journal is a blog. If your goal is to make it as a writer, you must be blogging. The topic is not really that important. It is important that you put down words about something every single day.
