Star Wars Books and Comics I'm Reading in Anticipation of Episode IX
December feels very, very far away right now. Along with my birthday, Chanukkah, and Christmas, it also brings Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker—which, let’s be honest, is the thing about which I’m most excited.

getyourwordsout | I Don’t Wanna Write! How To Keep Writing When You Lack Motivation
Secret time. I have lacked motivation for writing since about 2015. Stress hit me hard that year and I had to put my writing by the wayside. It was another full year until I got back to it, and while some days have been easier than others, sometimes I feel my motivation has permanently fled.

getyourwordsout | Self-publishing tell-all: Celia Lake
One of the topics for GYWO this year is a self-publishing tell-all. This post is a bit of 'what I've figured out' and a bit of 'how it's going for me so far' with a side of 'what my next steps are'.

Writing Begins With Forgiveness: Why One of the Most Common Pieces of Writing Advice Is Wrong | Seven Scribes
Writing advice blogs say it. Your favorite writers say it. MFA programs say it.


Write every single day.

It’s one of the most common pieces of writing advice and it’s wildly off base. I get it: The idea is to stay on your grind no matter what, don’t get discouraged, don’t slow down even when the muse isn’t cooperating and non-writing life tugs at your sleeve. In this convoluted, simplified version of the truly complex nature of creativity, missing a day is tantamount to giving up, the gateway drug to joining the masses of non-writing slouches.

Pretentious Title: How I Went From Writing 2,000 Words a Day to 10,000 Words a Day
When I started writing The Spirit War (Eli novel #4), I had a bit of a problem. I had a brand new baby and my life (like every new mother's life) was constantly on the verge of shambles. I paid for a sitter four times a week so I could get some writing time, and I guarded these hours like a mama bear guards her cubs - with ferocity and hiker-mauling violence. To keep my schedule and make my deadlines, I needed to write 4000 words during each of these carefully arranged sessions. I thought this would be simple. After all, before I quit my job to write full time I'd been writing 2k a day in the three hours before work. Surely with 6 hours of baby free writing time, 4k a day would be nothing....

But (of course), things didn't work out like that. Every day I'd sit down to add 4000 words to my new manuscript. I was determined, I was experienced, I knew my world. There was no reason I couldn't get 4k down. But every night when I hauled myself away, my word count had only increased by 2k, the same number of words I'd been getting before I quit my day job.

donutsweeper | Titles! (aka titling, the bane of many a fanfic writer's existence)
Titling fics can be one of the hardest parts of writing. A lot of people love to use quotes for their titles or do what I do in that they take a quote/idea and play with the wording to get something that will work for their story. But, that still means finding quotes or whathaveyou, right? Here are some places to start.
