Vampire Maman’s Tips On Writing

How to write

  • Write like you talk.
  • If people don’t like listening to you then find someone you like to listen to and write like they talk.
  • Or imagine how your character talks.
  • Close your eyes and let your story transport you.
  • Don’t be afraid.
  • Be fearless.
  • Let your fingers fly.
  • REMEMBER it is YOUR story, blog, book, poem, love letter.
  • It is your voice.
  • Think about your ideas all the time…in the car, while cooking, at night, in bed, everywhere. Never stop thinking about it.
  • Don’t pressure yourself.
  • Have fun. Most of all have fun. This is THE most important thing.
  • If you read a writing article and it makes you jittery or unsure don’t read it. STOP.
  • If anyone gives you any bit of grief don’t tell them about your writing. Keep them in the dark. Send them to the Vampires and Werewolves so you may write as you wish free of negativity.
  • Don’t listen to others. Listen to your own heart and soul.
  • Share with those who support you.
  • And to Hell with anyone who tries to put you down.
  • It is yours and only yours. If you wish to share that is your choice.
  • Writing isn’t about money or fame or pleasing someone else. It is about you and what makes you happy. Those are your words. YOURS ALONE.
  • The same rules apply to art and music.
  • If you like your writing and it makes you happy that is all that matters.
  • If it heals you that is all that matters.
  • If it helps you that is all that matters.
  • And if it makes someone laugh or think or ponder or sign or feel inspired…well, of course THAT is the big reward for me.

  1. Good advice! I’m going to have Adelia look at this. The story she has in mind is just awesome and I’d love to see it in print.

    • Yes! And to Adelia: Don’t let anyone pressure you. Finish in your own good time. It is YOUR story. All YOURS. I love your idea and if you choose to finish it I’ll post it here.
