You can't tell a paying client that you don't feel "inspired" or that you "just don't feel like writing today." I've found that if I just sit down and write, even when I'm not in the mood, I get into the story and get results. Of course, some days are always better than others--that's just life.

I…moreAspiring writers need to sit down and write, first and foremost. Don't worry about publishing and marketing until you get into a routine of writing. I advocate for writing every weekday. I take the weekends off, which helps me signal to myself that writing is a profession, and I need to set personal boundaries. Once you have a decent book or story written, send it to beta readers and get feedback. Then listen to what they have to say. When you have a first draft you feel good about, then you can focus on publishing your work. Publishing today is far more complicated than it used to be. There are more publishing options, but also more confusion, so just take it a step at a time. Reach out to other writers and ask questions. Learn what publishing choices are available and then make the decision that works best for your writing goals and lifestyle. (less)

Bloodworth is a great Southern storyteller who infuses history into his tales. He has captured the essence of the post-WWII era with compelling characters and a small-town setting. A good read—you’ll enjoy this one!
