Should a writer be a reader?

 


What are your thoughts on reading books? Should a writer/author be a reader as well? 

I think so. Please allow me to explain why:

1. It helps us to know what has already been written

2. It keeps us up to date on current plot trends

3. Reading will help keep us inspired

4. The more we read, the more we can learn about the craft of writing

 

For me personally, reading takes me away to a far-off place. It allows me to escape my current reality, even if it's for 15 or 20 minutes. That reason in itself keeps me turning the pages.

Sometimes we all need to escape for a while...do you agree? 

Do you write when you're not in the mood?

Goals vs. Resolutions 2022 edition

At the beginning of each year, I share a resolution vs. goal post.

 Let's resolve to leave 2021 where it belongs...in the past, and create for ourselves a joyful, prosperous, healthy 2022!

Resolution: A promise we make to ourselves and declare to others that we will make a positive change for the new year.

Goals: A plan we put into place to move towards a better life.

Do you see the difference? A resolution is a promise, but a goal is a plan. Let’s set goals for ourselves this year. Make a plan, buy a planner, write a list of steps to get you to where you want to be: financially, physically, emotionally, relationally. Set reasonable goals. Take baby steps towards your new future, your new life.
Let’s turn our dreams into reality for 2022! 
Meditate on your goals and the changes you want to make, see and feel yourself living the life you desire. Talk about your dreams and goals with people who will build you up and encourage you. Make your plan and work towards it each day, little by little, taking baby steps. Don't give up!

Let's make the changes within ourselves to become the people we want to be this year. It can be done, and WE are the only ones who can make it happen; join a gym, write a book, start a business, change the things we don't like about ourselves/our lives. Let's make this our year! 

2021 taught me so many beautiful things. I have learned how to create my future by what I say and feel. The law of attraction is real, my friends. It's time we allowed it to work to our benefit. 

If you have access to Netflix, I HIGHLY recommend you watch, The Secret. It has helped me change my life, and I am confident it can do the same for you!

If you enjoy reading, I suggest a book by David Goggins, entitled: Can't Hurt Me. This book can help you change your life if you allow it to!
