Becoming a Better Writer

Becoming a Better Writer

By Tasha Turner

Love this graphic from Copyblogger and it is a great lead in for today’s post.

Thanks to Tara Chevrestt I have begun writing for 30-60 minutes every day. My short Jewish vamp story is coming along. It is changing a lot from what it was when I wrote it for The Gage Project back in February. I suspect it will go through several major revisions before it sees the light of day. But thanks to Tara it should be out this summer as a stand-alone short. Fiction writing is so different in many ways from the technical writing I do. With technical writing one does not wait for the muse or the moment to strike one just writes. With fiction it feels different but as people keep telling me it really is not. I just have to write every day. So to fellow writers out there, join me in giving it a try. If you have fallen off the writing wagon like I have then get back on. Let me know how its going. Find a writing partner to get on your case. Help each other out. Use a timer, go by word count, decide to write a set number of scenes, whatever you need to do. Just get writing again. We can do this.

Tara Chevrestt

Tara Chevrestt is a deaf woman, former aviation mechanic, writer, and an editor. She is most passionate about planes, motorcycles, dogs, and above all, reading. That led to her love of writing. Between her writing and her editing, which allow her to be home with her little canine kids, she believes she has the greatest job in the world. She is also very happily married.

She also writes as Sonia Hightower. Sonia writes the racy stuff and argues that she was here first. She just wasn’t allowed to be unleashed until the last year.

While Tara and Sonia continue to fight over the laptop and debate who writes the next book, you can find buy links, blurbs, and other fun bits on their website: http://tarachevrestt.weebly.com/index.html or their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tara-Chevrestt-Sonia-Hightower/218383211513877

      Even if it’s only 30 minutes a day it keeps the habit of writing daily going.
