Love And The Writeaholic

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The message of this post is simple: Embrace love and enjoy life!

As a writer, it’s easy to push love away, to neglect exercise, to avoid seeing friends, to become a hermit, to miss out on life. For the sake of both your well-being and your writing – don’t do that!

By all means, stay focused on chasing your literary dreams. Take time to write because that’s the easiest way to improve your craft. Take time to network with other writers because they will help you learn of opportunities. Take time to target publications because if done effectively, you may get your writing published. However, don’t make those goals your entire life. Doing so will only stunt your creativity and your mental health.

On this Valentine’s Day, if you are fortunate enough to have a love to share it with, embrace him or her, and maybe, for the night, put down the pen.
