Happy Mew Year!
Hi. My name is Sandman. I’m a cat. You probably already know that. But what you may not know is that I’m also a writer. Yup. I like to write nonfiction for kittens…I mean kids.
Just like you, I like to follow along with this blog. It’s the cat’s meow. But lately I’ve noticed my writing buddy, Nancy I. Sanders, has gone AWOL. I mean, where are all her blog posts?
I did some investigating and discovered she’s been all tied up working hard on a very intensive writing project. She’s got a book deadline May 1, 2017 and it’s taking up all her time.
So I figured I’d try to help her out. I mean, what’s a feline friend for if we can’t help out our buddies now and then? Especially our writing buddies.
First of all, I want to wish you all a Happy Mew Year!
My advice for a successful writing year in 2017? Here are 3 Terrific Tips:
Tip #1: Take lots of cat naps so your writing is always fresh. Me? I like to put myself to sleep plotting out the next scene or fact I’ll be writing about when I wake up.
Tip #2: Eat lots of tasty treats while you write. Just keep them healthy. Hold off on too many tuna treats or beachside crunchies.
Tip #3: Just focus on one goal per day. One bitesize writing goal. Write the next sentence in your picture book. Write the next paragraph in your middle grade novel. You get the picture. If you’re crunched for time like my writing buddy is, you’ll accomplish more on your project if you just focus on getting one writing task done each day.
