I published an article on my blog about how words and language affect people and ourselves. The words we use cause us to feel certain emotions and we can change our state with our words. It's the second part of a series. Read it here:
I upset myself today. I spent an hour revising an article I wrote and, somehow, I messed it up and I lost it. It's gone. I still have the draft but the finished piece disappeared. What a bloody drag. On the upside...I still have the draft and the rewrite, which was significant, is still fresh in my mind. I better get to it.
I think tonight I'll sleep. I write a lot. I spend all day in front of a computer and most week nights and weekends I sit in front of my laptop and write (or type) some more. Last night I just couldn't do it nor do I think I can tonight. I'm so tired. I must be back on top of it tomorrow though because I must publish on Thursday.
Here's a piece I wrote that basically explains how I feel about writing and what I think will encourage people to be motivated to write. I hope you enjoy it and if there's anything you feel I could expand on or improve please comment. Follow this link to the article: http://www.thenorthernoptimist.com/?p=28
