Writer Wellness

  1. Don’t Compare yourself to other writers, except yourself yesterday.
  2. Do give yourself credit for the chapter you’ve finished, or that blog you wrote.
  3. Don’t allow anyone to determine yourself worth. Not agents. Not publishers. Not peers.
  4. Surround yourself with people who get you. Writing is a lonely life. A dog or cat makes for great unconditional support system.
  5. A good beta reader will make your writing better, and help you through the doubt.
  6. Be prepared for rejection and more rejection. Try your best to keep your spark. Remember why you started writing in the first place.
  7. The more you write the better you will get. And read, read, read.
