Friday is here and you know what that means! Today, is publishing day! Another new book is released. This one is for all the foodies out there who want to write down their recipes and keep track of their favorite finds! My Favorite Recipe Journal is Published! Drum roll – this is #3.
The next book is also journal style and it will be inspirational. After I published my Writing Prompt book with 30 days of prompts and exercises, I wanted to add more ways to inspire creativity. What I didn’t want is another book that’s only filled with quotes. Even I would need a break from myself if I quoting guru. Besides, I’m more a believer in action of words. Words inspire, create, and invent. When you can combine them together, then you have a winning formula.
This roll out of journals is one way to put my own words into action going into 2021. I wanted to publish all year long while I work on longer length novels. It’s also a way to keep me on track. One books inspires another, and I’m on a roll. You get the reward of seeing your work in print and the idea becomes real. You tell yourself you can actually do this thing called writing.
Writers always have layers of plotting and planning going on in their head. One more layer to the purpose of publishing these journals is to have a way to write down my own goals throughout the year and build my resources. If I don’t write down what I learn from other authors, or creatives I’ll forget. My notes and doodles before my blog saved me when my mind went blank several times. The more I brainstormed, the more ideas that spilled out onto the pages.
This might be your takeaway for this Friday while I pull out the cheese tray and pour myself a glass of wine. Use Fridays for idea days before you go into the weekend. Brainstorm, scribble, and doodle throughout the day to work through your story or begin your next book.
I feel my muse returning and have to return to the pages again! See you next week!
