Now that editing has picked up on GUNS AND DOGS I wanted to talk about having fun. What type of fun you may ask?
Some newbie writers I’ve spoken with have complained of writing and editing as tedious due to time constraints or Writer’s Block, an ailment I really cannot relate to since it’s a self-imposed predicament I don’t subscribe to. “So why do you write?” I ask these people. “Did you think it would be all fun and games? I mean, if you’re doing this for money or for fame, you’re in the wrong line of work.”
I think the best mindset to have when writing, or doing anything that’s a labor of love is to take it for face value. Enjoy the experience as your journey toward a better self, and, make the process the fun by not tying yourself up with the end result, because even if the book/project doesn’t turn out how you expected, you’ll have spent your time on a worthwhile endeavor. You!
Remember: turn ordinary tasks into extraordinary experiences. And watch your work soar like an Eagle.
