2017 – Ringing in the New Year!

PrintWith the advent of a new year, sensibilities rise to the forefront of our mind. Perhaps more than a birthday, the new year sings its own reverie to get our ducks in a row, to begin again to tow the mark, bids us to turn the page and start anew. Yes, the new year taunts us to envision the horizon and see the future by improving our focus. The festivities are over – winter is settling in and she proves to be a preponderance of resolution our inner being innately underscores in its need for reparation toward the achievement of our newest creative seeds and their triumphant emergence in the springtime for summer’s consumption and fall’s exuberance.

As a fledgling entrepreneur / small business connoisseur, having experienced equally great successes and failures, it is time to embrace the season and refresh business acumen, ideologies and direction. It is time to take successes into the future, and to comprehend lessons-learned from entrepreneurial failures of the past, in order to benefit clients, customers, readers and authors universally in our future.

In order to enact benefits, change is required. So, throughout the month of January 2017, change is the plan of the hour. And, will be introduced as the month progresses to enrich government and commercial clients and customers, as well as literary and non-fiction readers and authors.

Both dpInk Company Ltd. and DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. wish each of you happiness, prosperity, and health throughout 2017!

Nope, none of that.

Just SMACK! and Brilliance is there… and sadly just as quickly gone, as well.

Yesterday, out of nowhere, I got smacked good and hard.

It was, well, brilliant!

The final scene of The Hushing Days has now been written, and, pardon me, if I say… it’s really, really good.

Oh, I’ve still got thousands of words to go before month’s end to finish the novel, but that last scene is in the can!

It is fini!

It is done and gone and beaming in my rearview mirror…

Sweating Ink: The Writer’s Workout

The Eccentric Eclectic's Blogs About Everything and Anything

If you wanted to run a marathon, you would most likely prepare with months of training and conditioning. You’d start off small, like power walking every day. You’d increase the duration of your walks daily, and eventually you would go from walking to running. Every day of sweat and sore muscles would bring you one step closer to becoming a marathon runner.

Exercising-the-BrainJust like exertion of the body, exertion of the mind via writing requires just as much dedication, focus, and discipline.

Right now you might be saying something like the following:

“Sure – writing takes time, but I can lock myself in the office for a weekend and finish a whole book. Easy!”

I for one am not doubting anyone’s ability to sprint through a writing project. However, being a writer – a real professional writer – isn’t about how fast you can write a project. Writing is about…
