Greetings and Salutations -

I've posted the chat log from our chat on weekly writing and time management! There are all sorts of great suggestions in the chat. The new chat room worked great - I didn't hear of any issues with people struggling to log in. Also, the number zero works in it again! Hurrah! Things get better and better :).

The chat log is in the Editor Assistance site, under the Forums / Chats subject area.

A key thing we talked about is how important it is to set up an inspiring area to write in. Rather than wait for inspiration to be "created" by nature, you control your own fate! *You* know what inspires you. Make it happen! Use scents, colors, images, and other aspects to build that inspiration.

I'm taking a class on Stress Management right now and coincidentally the first chapter is all on environment. It talks about how key it is to create an environment that nurtures you. What sounds do you hear? What images do you see? Are they welcoming and inspiring? If not, take just one step to tweak that!

I've set up a forum thread for us to discuss our writing environments here -


Post a photo of yours, or describe yours, and let us help you! It's amazing how just a tiny tweak can turn into amazing results.
