There are 29 days until the end of the year.

You have 29 days to start, revamp, revise and rewrite your WIP or begin another one!

Don’t make the mistake of trying to put off the writing due to the lateness of the hour. There will never be a great time to write. That is why you make time to write.

Make the time.

Take the time.

Make up the time.

Get to work.

With Love & Ink,

Writing is one of the few professions were merit is your credit. Where your ability to honor the others that come before you, allows you to increase your influence and networking.

One of the worst things you can have as a writer is ‘bad credit.’ The worst thing you can be labeled as is a writer that takes work without credit, or publishes other people’s work as your own, or whom is known to not ‘own your own pen.’

I know the process of writing can be hard, it can be thankless, and an easy out can [seem to be] plagiarism.

Don’t fall for that trap. You can do better.

Don’t ruin your writer credit.

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris

Note: The topic of ‘bad credit’ as a writer will be discussed is Season 2 of The Writers’ Block Podcast–which resumes on December 5, 2019.

When I was in elementary school, my teachers from third to fifth grade, when it was time to take a test, would say:

“Eyes on your own paper.”

This piece of advice can be translated to writers. Your work, is your work. It is powered by your own imagination, your own talent and merit. Don’t short change what you are creating because you may be unsure about its outcome!

Work your work!

You can do it!

With Love & Ink,
