Amazing Writer Race

Amazing Writer Race

Real Title: Ready, Set, Go…I’m in my own version an Amazing Writer Race…

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I changed some of it from what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it.

Writing is such a fun and exhilarating thing. I think of it as an Amazing Writer Race.

One of my old favorite reality shows was The Amazing Race and this got me to thinking of the similarities between that show and the writing industry. When you think of what The Amazing Race show really is. It isn’t only about the money (which at time I watched was a million dollars) it’s about the experience on the race. Now lets me give you the break down on what are the similarities and differences between show and The Amazing Writer Race.

Starting

Amazing Race – before the race even hits TV a call goes out for entrants. Contestants have to sign up and I’m sure go through process before they are picked.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – Before you can become a writer and idea must form. That call to pick up the pen or peck on that keyboard to pound out a story.

Differences – A writer is the only one who judges if you are worthy to be in the race and what must be done.

Point A to B

Amazing Race – once in the race you have to get from point so and so to here or there with your wits, leg work and a little money

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – As a writer you use your wits, legwork, and money to get your writing out there.

Differences – The road to Point A to B changes as you do and the way there is not clear cut way. It is up to you to get there at your own will.

Places, Culture, and Customs

Amazing Race – Each leg of the race the contestants goes to a new place they have to make themselves familiar with the places, culture and various customs. They even participate in some of these.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – a writer has to do the same thing get in tune with the place, the scents, and people there.

Differences – the writer is the one who builds the world, the cultures and customs they follow. This gives you more leeway to make it yours.

People

Amazing Race – along the way you meet various people in these places you visit that.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – In your writing life you met and get to know so many people that you take away something from each.

Differences – You get to know the people longer and better and form lasting friendships.

Detours/Road Blocks

Amazing Race – along the way there are detours and challenges to be performed before a contestant can move on.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – In your writing life you have detours and challenges to met also.

Differences – The type of challenges and the amount of time you have to overcome each is set by you. How you go about it is also set by you.

Other Contestants

Amazing Race – you have others that are in the race vying to get that money.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – as a writer you also have other writer’s who is vying for that book deal.

Differences – The support and true friendships that you find with other writer who are going after the same thing.

Winning

Amazing Race – At the end of all of that there is one winner.

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – A writer definitely wants to be a winner.

Differences – However there is many winners in this race and some of them are your friends who also is in this race as an amazing writer.

Time Frame

Amazing Race – there is a set time frame to get things some

Amazing Writer Race:

Similarities – You set goals and times to be done with various things.

Differences – Your time frame as an author is as long as you want and the race doesn’t end until you let it.

So in this Amazing Writer Race according to your genre there is more romance, mystery, far off place or any number of things. They lead most times to a happy ending or resolution. You also have the bonus of not only getting to build your own worlds the way I like them. You also create the characters.

When it comes down to it the major difference in the Amazing Writer Race is even after we have won the prize – a book contract – we still keep racing to get the next, then the next and next until infinity. So we are always racing. Racing at whatever pace we want since we all in the end win and get our version of success. And after that book is out we enter a whole new phase of the race.

Our journey is a race one that I have said before is  A Marathon and Not A Sprint. And no matter what speed you do it you will still get your win (your definition of success) and keep on winning with each book you write. This is a race we love and do it because we love it.

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.

Emotions With No Words

Emotions With No Words

Real Title: Non-Verbal inspiration….what are they saying…

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I changed some of it from what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it.

When I watch ballet I realized that although there were no words I clearly knew what the dancers were portraying with their body. The ballet had all the emotions it made me laugh, angry, and weep.

After the show it left me thinking of the non-verbal communication in everyday life. So I conducted a sort of experiment. I studied people when I walked around, on the train and where ever I went. It was amazing how much I found that I could tell a lot about people without them saying a word. Now I’m not saying that I didn’t notice before when someone was happy, angry or upset before but the ballet made me observe more.

I also took a look at the TV show Lie to Me. The shows whole concept is about reading people. They use the human face and body language. Also peoples tone of voice. Between that and the ballet it opened a fascination in me.

With my experiment and the show they made me think even more. Come up with a story concept to use the non-verbal to get emotion across with no words.

Take a shot at observing someone today and see what you can find out. It may lead you to unexpected things.

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.

Scribesism ~ Recaps

This is weekly recap of Scribesism I have posted to the fb page and other social media.

You know what I think when I see other writers. My tribe. Oh my Gosh they are crazy, and some you don’t want to admit you know since they are way nuttier than you and that’s saying something and I love each and every one of them. Yes even you and you. Maybe you. Definitely you. Heck I love you. Here is to that big ole writer tribe.

Imposter syndrome seeps in without you knowing it. I’m not good enough. I’m a fraud. All this fills you and crushes your creativity. Make a visual representation that will combat this. Create an Author Boss Wall of Success. First item last page of the first book you ever wrote. How can you be an imposter you wrote a book? Own it and claim it. You wrote a book.

Perfection is a myth. When you keep trying to be perfect you’ll never finish. Stop looking for perfection and accept it doesn’t exist except maybe in the fiction you create. Strive instead for doing your best.

When I’m writing the words are like a rhythm of a song and I go along with the beat.

There are no limits to the success you can achieve. Strive for it and get your definition of success.

Writing is fun, enjoy the story you are writing.

Relax and enjoy a day off to rejuvenate your mind. Taking time for self-care is important.

Author Mindset ~ Take Time and Evaluate


This is weekly recap of one of the Author Mindset I’ve posted to the fb page and other social media.

Author Mindset ~ Take Time and Evaluate

By: Scribes Unleashed

A few times a year I evaluate my author business. Some are small ones ie a pulse check to see what is working and what is not. Toward the end of the year I do a top to bottom review of my author business. I review my books (everything from my blurbs, covers, and etc.) and make any updates as needed. Covers need changing I do that. Blurb needs changing I do that. Or anything that needs to be done. I check my newsletter, social media, promotion, website, and so on. Basically I check everything and evaluate my author business. When I do I make changes. This also helps me plan for the future and how I will move forward. The author business is dynamic and growing, adapting and your moving with it benefits you.

This is weekly recap of one of the Author Mindset I’ve posted to the fb page and other social media.

Author Mindset ~ Dream Bigger

By: Scribes Unleashed

When you think of success thing in terms of it being all you can dream. Don’t limit those dreams. Get into the Author Mindset that you can be any success you want to be. That your success is defined by the limits you set. So don’t let your fear of success. Fear that you aren’t good enough or imposter syndrome stop you from getting success.

Author Mindset is everything. Think about what you want and believe you can accomplish it. It will take time, hard work and the right mindset to get you there. You can do this. You got this. Work on that Author Mindset and…

Author Mindset ~ Procrastination is Necessary


This is weekly recap of one of the Author Mindset I’ve posted to the fb page and other social media.

Author Mindset ~ Procrastination is Necessary

By: Scribes Unleashed

Don’t let anyone stop you from achieving your dream. Not even yourself. There will be doubts, fear and any number of things that will try to stop you. Or others who will try to dissuade you. Don’t let it. Dream. Plan. Do it.

Many writers ignore the signs they need a break or time off one all too often. They try to get just that last word in then push for more. Even when tired cranky and had enough. They ignore their body and mind. Sometimes it gets to the point that burn out occurs. But the body has its own way of dealing with you ignoring it ie. you get sick or so on. But the mind on the other hand has the defense of that good ole procrastination on its side.

When your mind has had enough it goes into the procrastination mode.

Procrastination is the minds way of working out something. Go with it and embrace the procrastination. Kick the guilt about procrastination and embrace it. Hell give it a name. I call mine Mayhem.

Procrastination is Necessary

Author Mindset ~ Better Than You Think


This is weekly recap of one of the Author Mindset I’ve posted to the fb page and other social media.

Author Mindset ~ Better Than You Think

By: Scribes Unleashed

Mind is racing with everything I did this week and to do this week. The one thing that stands out is all the things I got done and those I didn’t yet. But I don’t dwell of the not done since I don’t want to go down that mental path of if I did this then this could have happened. Instead I focus on the now and what I did do. When I go through what I did do…I’m usually shocked at how much it was.

We usually underestimate what we do. We’re our own hardest critic of what we do. I’ve learned over the years to muffle that inner critic that nags me that I didn’t get something done. Or any of the negative things. Sometimes it seeps in that damn inner critic but I’ve gotten to a stage that I squash it fairly quickly. Your author mindset is important and you don’t have space for the negative. I’m going back to the “protect your creativity”. That is the most important part of your author business.

Without it there is no business. Without it there is no creativity. And I don’t know about you but even if I was not to publish another book I will still keep writing. Because I love It like this post says – http://bit.ly/2zaGlVR.

Now back to topic. Acknowledging that you’re doing better than you think. When you say the word “You Got This” that you mean them. Now think of what you did this week and celebrate you’re doing….

Better Than You Think
