As a writer and blogger I have a fascination with the natural world. While I love the birds and the bees, I also love the animals. I wanted a house that was both warm and inviting for my cat. I wanted a place that was big enough for 6 of us and that was easy to get to in a day. I wanted to create a space that could be where I could relax and enjoy the outdoors while I wrote, took photos, and ate meals.
A little over 5 years ago I bought a 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom home in Lake Tahoe. After about 10 months, I moved out and took a furnished room in my parents’ home in the mountains. I’m in my third year of writing a blog about my life and my writing. I have yet to buy anything, but I have been in the process of picking out a house. I am working on a blog about my life and my writing.
I love the idea of a writer’s retreat. It sounds so simple. You go out and write. You write. At night you read, maybe write, maybe read some more. You write…and you take time to be reminded of why you’re doing this, why you’re writing, and why you are the writer you are. It’s a long process and not without its challenges. But the rewards are so worth it.
A writers retreat sounds like a nice idea, but when you get down to it, it can be terrifying. It can be intimidating when you’re just starting out and you have no idea what you’re doing. You don’t know whom you can trust, and you can’t really tell anyone else what you’re going to do. All the advice you read online can be so confusing, and you’re not even sure if it’s good advice at all.
Well, we can agree that some of it is great advice. But how do you decide which of it to follow? How do you know if it is helping you to grow as a writer or if you are just wasting your time? It can be daunting, but with a little help you just might find yourself in a place where you are glad you came to work at Alliteration.
That sounds about right. Because you don’t know what youre doing until you really want to know. After all, you cant really know what will help you until you try. So when you get advice on how to write, research, or how to get your ideas published, go for it. If it helps you grow as a writer then do it. But if it just makes you feel like you have wasted your time, then ditch it.
A lot of advice on how to get your ideas published is just that, advice. No matter what youre going to be doing, theres no magic formula. And just because youre doing one thing doesn’t mean you have to do them all. When youre writing, you need to start with a clear goal. When youre researching, you need to search for the right information so that you can put it together into a coherent story.
As a writer, I think it is important to have clear goals in mind, and not just have them dictated to you by the current state of your life. That same thing applies to your research. The more you know, the more you can see your way around. You can learn things by just going to the library and seeing what is out there.
This is true for all writers, whether they are academic or just writing for fun. The library is a great place to start. By looking at your local collections and the shelves in your local library, you can start to see what is out there. The same thing happens with your internet research. You might look at your favorite blogs to see what is out there, but it doesn’t have to be your only source. One of my favorite sources is the internet.
If you are just starting to write, the internet is a great place to start. It is one of the most important sources for finding information. So even if you are not writing fiction, you can still start by looking for information online. You do not have to be someone who is a professional journalist or a professional academic. There is no reason not to start looking for information online.
