I recently read this little hardcover book, The Writer’s Little Helper. I loved it. It has lots of great information packed into tiny, color-coded chapters. It’s a fast read. What I loved best was the author’s direct and specific advice. Avoid these words. Try this technique. He shares several helpful tools and charts. I’ll definitely keep this book around as a reference.
The author makes it very clear that there’s no such thing as writer’s block. It’s an excuse to be lazy. I totally agree, especially as an artist. Over the past several years and dozens of art shows, I would constantly run into artists that would claim they’ve experienced artist’s block. Bad. Excuse.
Professionals go to work every day. If art or writing is your profession, you still go to work every day. I’m not inspired every day, but there’s no time to wait for inspiration. As long as sit at my table and get started, something will come to me.
Speaking of inspiration, The Writer’s Little Helper has inspired me to get off my butt and write more.
