Author Mindset ~ Design Your Author Life

By: Scribes Unleashed

This author business has so many ups and downs. Things coming at you from all sides and you sometimes don’t know which way is up. Let me tell you a secret. Up is anyway you want it to be. Yes even if it’s not the same way as everyone else. Something I tell all my coaching clients. Do you. Define what is your definition of success.

Each person has their own definition of success that is theirs and theirs alone. This is what they should strive to be. Don’t worry about anyone else. Do you and be you. When thinking of how you want to do this author business. Think of what works for you. What is your plan? Where you want to be and how you want to get there. Basically you get to decide what your author business will look like.

Have an author mindset of being your definition success. Author mindset is an essential tool to have in this author business. Strive for what you want and want to accomplish. Work toward what you want your author career blueprint to look like. You are in control of your career.

Author Mindset ~ Frustration as Fuel


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

Author Mindset ~ Frustration as Fuel

By: Scribes Unleashed

Sometimes it seems like nothing is going right. Everything you try is failing. Low sales, no exposure, no interaction and (insert all the no’s or things that aren’t working out). But we’re so hard on ourselves we never think of the forward progress we are making. Take what is happening and use it a lesson learned that you can grow from. Adapt what you are doing and find the parts that worked and evaluate the ones that did not. You’d be surprised when you do there is more there than you think. So use that frustration you are feeling to do something with it.

Lesson Learned ~ Dealing with the Unexpected

Lesson Learned ~ Dealing with the Unexpected

By: Scribes Unleashed

Each week I’ll post a Lesson Learned. Here’s this weeks.

Recently as in about two weeks ago I had an accident and now am in tons of pain. With that I have to deal with what I have planned.

Thankfully I plan ahead so I’m already working on books and so on for next year. This is why having books, plans and so on already done in future comes in handy. Those unexpected things that come up and if you don’t have a plan it can make you panic and derail you.

I’ve learned this the hard way from the past so I’m prepared for that unexpected. So although I had the unexpected come up I am dealing with it and still on track. And what can’t get done for any reason I adjust it as needed.

The lesson learned is to keep planning ahead so I’m prepared for dealing with the unexpected.

I’m gonna end with the same statement I made and continue to make – do what is right for you.

The Emotion of Writing

The Emotion of Writing

Real Title: Finding ways to tap into emotions is what I want to accomplish….

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I haven’t changed what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it. And might in future even do an updated one for where I am now. Sort of a before and after.

I had an interesting discussion the other day. Okay I’ll admit it was more of a debate. It was concerning a book a mutual friend and I had both read. She didn’t like and I loved it.

That led to a long debate of us both listing out points and countering why we liked or disliked the book. We got loud and emotionally about our point of view.It was interesting. We had others around us who had read the book chiming in and those who hadn’t asking more about it. It even led to other discussion of various author’s work we liked, did not like, the reasons why or why not. It was a very reveling conversation.

This is the emotion of writing. No matter if your book is not liked or liked. It has created an emotion. As an author this is what I want to do. Whether it is good or bad. I want you to feel it. The one thing I do not want is apathy. That is like a punch to any writer. Please NO APATHY. Give me any emotion and I will feel that I have done my job.

Now I am not saying if I get a bad review or email that a reader didn’t like my work I won’t get a little upset at first. But when it comes down to it I will be content and happy. I created a reaction.

An Emotion.

I touched the reader in some way. From that little debate I had the other day. I realized that people will remember you if they have enough emotion whether good or bad. I got a few new authors to try just from that conversation alone. Hey just because someone didn’t like a book doesn’t mean what they saw as flaws I or another reader wouldn’t see as treasures.

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.

Real Title: Creating Worlds in my Jam….

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I haven’t changed what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it. And might in future even do an updated one for where I am now. Sort of a before and after.

When creating a story with a town of community it takes many parts to get a sense of what this place is all about. I love creating towns and various types of families. In building towns or communities, they all have their own idiosyncrasies that make them unique. You build it with many layers that not only include the setting but the people, sights and sounds that make a place.

If you think of your own hometown there is no place else in the world like it. There might be similarities but there are things that make it uniquely your hometown. This is what I go for when I write any story. Making it familiar like somewhere, you have been but with differences that make the town special. It is an amazing thing building a place from scratch. Creating the people that inhabit it. Making them live to those reading. The sights that make you know that you are in this town with these people. The sounds that capture you if you walk down the street.

With any good structure all the pieces must be laid together to create a mosaic that tells a story. I want to take you on a journey that engages all the senses. Building it so you can feel like you are part of it. There is nothing better to me than that.

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.

With all these demanding characters running around in my head wanting their story I’m always entertained. Also function with very little sleep. Okay function is a strong word…more like if I remember my own name it’s a good day. 🙂

When I tell people I’m a writer they think I’m crazy. And you know I can’t disagree. Writers talk to themselves, act out action scenes, fight with characters who choose 2 am to decide now they want to let you know their story and…wait maybe that’s just me. Come on you know you do these things in some form too.

When the issue you’ve been having in your story comes to you when you are not near any paper, computer or anything to write it down you learn to adapt. I’ve written on placemats, napkins, told the scene to someone and told them remember in a frightening voice (yes they did too I think I scared them. LOL.), and any other way I can. Writing is some serious and always an entertaining thing. Love Writing.

That moment when you put The End in a book is one of joy. Celebrate the moment and appreciate that you wrote a book.

Me Time is important take some time off and enjoy yourself.

Author Mindset ~ Be an Innovator


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

Author Mindset ~ Be an Innovator

By: Scribes Unleashed

There are many things I love about writing. One of them is I get to create. Create the world I use be it in a real one or fictional one. Make up the characters with all their quirks, personalities and so on that makes them who they are. Bring their story to life with my words as I go on a journey with them. Storytelling is one of the most wonderful part of writing. Just from my mind I get to create something that no one else has. No matter if you’re writing to a common theme what you create is all yours. Writing allows me to daydream and then put that onto a screen or paper and share with the world.

Another is this author career can be one you can make a living at doing. Dream of doing that and set it into action. Do things to do so. Set your definition of success and go for it. Dream big and work for it. To succeed you need to be willing to keep learning, change things as needed, and most of all believe in yourself. Not matter if it seems impossible to do something think of ways to do it and accomplish it. Things will not happen overnight but as you work toward it they will happen. Even if it takes days, weeks, months or years you keep striving to be the author you want to be. Get the success that you want to achieve.

Embrace the author mindset that you’ll be a successful author and go for it.

With writing I get to create and be my definition of success. Most important of all I get to set my author mindset on how I want my career. With this author mindset for my career I set my own path and I get to…
