Making ourselves the best writers we can be is the essential act for creative freedom, fulfillment, happiness, and literary success. But too easily we spend the majority of our time working on the craft of writing instead of on the rest of our life that supports it.
For the last fifteen years, I’ve struggled to make myself the best writer I can be studying, reading, and examining the ins and outs of literature with all of its rules, guidelines, and tricks.
Now, I’m on the same journey to become the best writer I can be, but with a new attitude, looking for guidelines and tricks to help my adjacent literary life of the mind, body, and spirit.
For instance, what are the best ways to take care of your mind so that you’re in your best creative state? What are the perfect foods to feed your brain and your body to write better? What are the benefits to sitting by yourself, unplugged from everything, and quietly and peacefully listening for that authentic voice inside of you? What motivates you, and can this change if it doesn’t feel right? Is there still fire in your writing and how can you get it back if its mellowed?
So let’s go!
Take this journey with me to discover how to get the best out of your literature adjacent life. I’ll be documenting it all right here, and I hope that you’ll follow along with me.
