A great story about kindness and helping others, no matter who you are! #kindness

This morning I saw a young guy have difficulty getting on the elevator. His overloaded cart stubbornly refused to make it through the door. I grabbed one end and helped him push it through the doors and onto the elevator. He thanked me, a random stranger to him, and we went our separate ways. He needed help. I helped. The end.

The flashback made me reel.

Almost thirty years ago I pushed a similar cart onto an elevator at my first job – or attempted to. I had difficulty with my cart until a random stranger helped me out.

When I got my first job at A.H. Robins in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia, family and friends alike applauded. How lucky I was, they said, to have been hired by the pharmaceutical company owned by such a well-known and respected Richmond family. They were correct.

I had friends and family…

#Fatigue: An Enemy of Us All and How to Combat It #Stresstips


fatigue

I woke up feeling fatigued and exhausted. My right leg cramped and pain rocked my body. What a way to wake up, eh?

I’m exhausted. My body is screaming for a break and I have no choice but to listen.

“You’ve got to keep yourself in prime physical condition, because fatigue makes cowards of us all.” Vince Lombardi

One of the ways I battle fatigue is to go for a walk. The fresh air rejuvenates my lungs and cleanses my soul. The music I listen to is filled with happy beats and lyrics.

Are you feeling fatigued and/or burned out?

Listen to your body and do something to refresh yourself. I strongly recommend going for a walk or exercise. Empty your mind of all the to-do’s and stressors. Release it all and be in the moment.

Another recommendation is meditation/prayer. Be one with yourself and your spirituality. Let peace fill your body with every breath.

Our body knows what we need and when it is fatigued it is telling us it needs a check-up STAT! :)

Don’t ignore the symptoms but combat fatigue head-on! You’ll be feeling great in no time!

What do you do to deal with exhaustion and fatigue? Any tips to share would be much appreciated!

Excellent advice for creating a guest post/review system and a must read for all bloggers, authors and reviewers. :-) MRS N

Originally posted on Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog..... An Author Promotions Enterprise!:

The Questions:

(From authors)

WHY should I promote other authors and their books on MY blog when I can’t even get LOTS of people to buy and review MY book(s)?

(From Readers & Bloggers)

WHY would authors (read demi-gods) who are way above me in the hierarchy of intelligence levels possibly want to send their articles to ME – a lowly Reader and Blogger?

(From existing Author / Books Bloggers)

I ALREADY have a good system going so WHY should I even CONSIDER changing it?

The Answers

(To Authors)

By featuring other authors and their books on YOUR blog, YOU and YOUR BOOK(S) will be seen by visitors as well – plus – it WILL bring NEW visitors and followers to YOUR BLOG and may even result in them getting YOUR BOOK(S)!

Writing Wednesday Workshop: Emotional Stakes


emotional stakes writing

This week’s workshop is dealing with emotional stakes. In every story, there are emotional stakes. Emotional stakes is what drives a novel. What are emotional stakes?

Emotional stakes simply put are what’s at risk for the main character (usually the protagonist). He/She has a conflict and the writer’s purpose is to make the reader care about the outcome. Read the quote above.

There is a fine line between too much and not enough emotional stakes (or jeopardy). As a writer, you have to walk that tightrope. It’s a difficult task but easier if you follow these tips:

-Think life or death, emotionally that is, when you are outlining the stakes for your protagonist. The bigger the stakes, the more likely the reader will care. Example: Harry Potter

-Internal emotional turmoil is a good one, especially in fiction. The protagonist has to come to terms with something at the core of who they are. Choices are a big part of this. Example: Les Miserables

- Don’t create perfect characters. Show their flaws so the reader can connect with them. I made this mistake with the first draft of Princess of the Light. I didn’t show their flaws because I didn’t think I needed to. But everyone has flaws, including me, and to be relatable your protagonist has to have flaws. Example: Princess of the Light

- Make your emotional stakes very clear to the reader, especially in your blurb. There is nothing worse for me as a reader than to read the blurb and haven’t a clue what the stakes are. If I can’t tell reading the blurb, then I won’t buy the book. Read my blurb and pay close attention to the last sentence:

Gabriel, the Archangel and Messenger of God – yeah that Gabriel, visited Mary Miller. He told her, as the key she is destined to spread the Light and vanquish the Darkness. Her first assignment is to restore the soul the Walking Man. Sounds simple enough until she’s thrown in the face of evil, and then Joe Deacons enters her heart. This battle just got a lot more complicated. She must complete her mission without losing all she loves.

Need more helping incorporating stakes into your book? Grab your favorite book and pay close attention to the emotional stakes. I bet you’ll see how important it is as a writer to weave emotional stakes into your story. As a reader, you want to be emotionally invested and wonder if the main character will survive.

Writers, how do you weave emotional stakes into your stories? Any tips or tricks? Please comment below.

Have a great week and keep writing!

Until next time,

MRS N, the Writer

Schedule an Appointment to Relax Today


relax

I was talking about the past weekend with a friend of mine. I told her how MR N and I went out clothes shopping Saturday morning and relaxed in the afternoon.

“How do you have time to relax?” she asked.

“We make time.” I shrugged.

“Gosh, I should do that too.”

It got me thinking, maybe people should incorporate some time in their busy schedule to relax. We all live busy lives and have a million things to do. We have people clamoring for our attention and as a result, are utterly exhausted.

Read the quote and ask yourself when was the last time you scheduled some time to do nothing. Yesterday? This past weekend? Last month? Can’t remember?

It’s about time to schedule a relaxing appointment. Whip our your planner and book an appointment with yourself. Then shut off your phone and/or devices and just relax. Take your favorite beverage to a serene spot and relax.

:-) MRS N :-)
