How has the weather been in your area? I hope you are enjoying spring and finding plenty of writing inspiration. Here are a few links that might aid your journey.


Whether you write fiction or non fiction, Writer's Digest offers help with 50 Articles on Writing to Help You in 2015. Link categories include plot, structure, characters, grammar, publishing, article writing, freelancing, and more.

Have trouble staying on track? Jennifer Brown Banks at Pen and Prosper offers help in 5 Ways to Stay Focused to Finish Those Projects!

Do you know how to use the word "couple"? It can be trickier than you think. C.S. Lakin explains its proper use in this post

Time management on your mind? Seth Godin provides an interesting take on productivity in Five Steps to Digital Hygiene.


What helps you manage your writing time? Do you have any new spring writing projects?

Happy writing,

  1. Thanks for sharing the links. I'm writing non-fiction for work now so I just have to get myself going every day. Wanting to get paid is a good motivator. Now if I can get back to my story.

  6. I read the couple post just now. --No 'of' for that couple. The 50 articles may take a little more time to get through. :)

  7. Terri,
    Yes it is nearly summer here too. Although probably warmer in FL for you. :) Cheering you on for the WIP!

    Holly,
    I liked that article. Hope you did too! You might want to get a snack before tackling all 50 articles. lol :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen

  8. I'm getting better. Another mystery writer friend told me she writes early in the morning and I'm trying to do that. Brain is less foggy or filled with the events of the day. I'll check out that 'couple' thing too. =0)

  9. I checked out Pen & Prosper, and she has some good suggestions on staying focused. Now I need to go write!

  10. I have too many projects going and sometimes have a hard time staying focused, especially since I write at night after working all day! Prayer and chocolate help me most!

  13. Susan,
    I am glad you are finding that routine helpful. I may have to give it a try too. :)

    Susan R.
    She does have good suggestions, doesn't she? Glad you found them helpful! :)

    Jen,
    Prayer and chocolate are wonderful writing companions! :) I too, have challenges staying with it sometimes.

    Jennifer,
    You are more than welcome. It was a good and helpful post! :)

    I hope the breeze warms up some for you soon, and that sunshine keeps coming! :) Keep moving forward, right?

  14. Great links! I've been slowing down on my blog for spring summer, and using a timer more to keep me from going "over" my limits on the web. I have too many projects going all at once, at the moment, and time management is a necessity.
    Happy Spring, Karen!

  15. I'll check these out.

    It's way too hot where I am, many times close to 90. I'm gearing up for summer vacation soon.

  17. Tyrean,
    Thanks so much! A timer is an excellent idea. Something I need to employ this summer! :)

    Medeia,
    Hope they are helpful. Yes, I would say that 90 is a bit too warm for my tastes too. Enjoy the summer break! :)

    Lynn,
    You are welcome. I hope they are of use to you. :) I'm with you, must keep writing! :)

    Happy writing,
    Karen
