Encouragement Pages-09/09/2019: Chase The Story

I want you to know that you have so many stories. You have so many stories on the inside of you. I want you to be brave enough to look for them. This week, during the second week of Back To Writing Month, I want you to find what is brewing in your mind and go after it.

I want you to seek it out.

Don’t shy from it.

Get at the story. Chase it. Don’t let it get away this time.

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris

Encouragement Pages: 4/24/19-Put Your Thoughts On Wax

Writers use all kinds of tools to get the work of writing done. One of the most overlooked tools is what is a freely installed app on your phone.

Voice Memos.

This feature allows you the unique ability to record your idea, with a time and date stamp. It’s your own ‘poor man’ copyright. Take advantage of this feature. It’s not as sexy as pen and paper, I know. There is a sensual nature to that, without a doubt. But if preserving the story is the goal, keeping the idea in tact the mission (read: especially, if pen and paper aren’t available!) record it.

It’ll save your sanity.

And maybe keep you from cursing your future self for not recording the idea at first unction.
