The Ultimate Guide to Taking Care of Your Writer As They Approach a Deadline

someone send help submissions for this magazine end on the 1st

If you’re worried about your writer, please follow these guidelines for assuring your writer is kept in good health and self-esteem:

  • Offer to proofread. The biggest help you could give is proofreading. Usually, a writer will be very excited to have someone read their work as their working on it. It’s nice to have feedback and support. Don’t be afraid to be critical, but also be gentle. Your writer is very nervous right now. They might need a little ego boost. 
  • Get them a drink. Hot tea is good for a lot of things. It can help with stress or just keeping a body in good shape. Offer your writer a cup. Or a cup of coffee (coffee is actually proven to be good for the brain during the editing stage). Or get them a glass of water (which is nice and refreshing), a glass of their favorite juice, a smoothie, or milkshake (as a little treat for doing so well). I only recommend alcohol if the writer is legal and isn’t too close to the deadline. Alcohol is actually good for the creative part of your brain. You know what they say. Write drunk, edit sober. 
  • Bring them snacks. They need some energy. Get them something healthy. Cut up some fruit. Grab a granola bar. Make a simple parfait. 
  • Shut down any negative talk. Once your writer gets in the mindset that they suck, it’s hard to get back out. We all have those moments when we feel like we’re no good and should just succumb to a mediocre life because that’s all we are–mediocre. What you need to do is have your writer pick out what they’re good at. Have them read a good part of their story to you. Make them be positive–or at least fake it ‘til them make it. 
  • Assure them a rejection ins’t the end of the world. If they’re submitting something to a magazine or publishing house, tell them that rejection doesn’t mean they’re not good. Magazines and houses can’t accept everyone. Maybe your writer’s piece just didn’t fit the vibe. Maybe it was great, but there was just something better. Tell them not to give up. Someone else will like that story. Their hard work wasn’t for naught. 
  • Assure them a rejection is better than giving up. Also, tell them that a rejection letter is better than wondering a year later if they would have made it or not. It’s better to have a finished, rejected piece than to have an abandoned one. 
  • But let them skip a deadline. If the magazine has another round of submissions soon after, tell your writer it’s okay to wait for next time. If they’re really struggling to get a piece completed or are struggling with something else, let them know that taking their time is important. It might be hard for your writer to pass up a submission round, but sometimes it’s for the best. 
  • If they get a glassy look in their eyes, tell them to take a break. Please don’t let your writer’s brain turn to mush. They need time to recharge. If they’re low on energy or creativity for the day, watch a movie with them or play a game or go on a walk. Exhaustion is not good.
  • Remind them to save. We all forget to save our documents. Unless they’re using Google Docs. If they’re using Docs, then you can skip this. 
  • Make sure they’re taking their medication (if applicable). A lot of writers need medication to keep them going. If your writer has been diagnosed with a mental or physical illness, remind them to take their medication on time. It’s easy to forget if your writer is in the zone. 
  • Make sure they’re eating. Again, some things are easy to forget. 
  • Let them talk through their problems. If your writer has hit a road bump in their story, sometimes it just takes a conversation to work it out. Or if they’re having personal problems–fear of failing or stress–please let them talk to you. Everyone needs a friend to talk to from time to time. 
  • Remind them that you love their work regardless of what anyone else says. Let your writer know they have a fan–you. It’s nice for them to know that at least one person loves their writing even if they’re facing rejection. 

Writing is a huge part of a writer’s identity and life. It doesn’t matter if they’re doing it as a hobby or as a job. Writing is stressful and time-consuming, yet your writer would rather be doing nothing else. Make sure that the writer in your life is taking care of themselves. It’s easy to let a project or job distract them from healthy habits.

Prompt 1: Group Bonding

Set after #54

Marco, allegedly, threw parties, only Marco didn’t really throw the parties. He would decide a party ought to be had, then he would consult with his accountant on how much money he should and could spend. After that, he would have his assistant du jour contact his preferred event planner. He and the event planner would have a brief meeting, either over dinner or on the phone between gigs, depending on how busy Marco was that week. The event planner would contact the caterers and the entertainment and the decorators, and his butler would let them all into his house. On the day of the party, Marco would dress himself in a stylist chosen outfit, and float toward what he called his ballroom with an invented excitement. He would mingle and gossip and network, holding a martini glass in his hand for show, adjusting his feigned inebriation depending on the interaction. When the party was over, he would speak to the event planner, and thank her for her work. The event planner would have the caterers and entertainers and decorators clean the place up. The accountant would take care of the check. The assistant would tie loose ends. Marco, for what it was worth, got to choose his own pajamas at the end of the night.

Marco, this time, had definitely thrown the party himself.

It was his birthday week. He had already had his annual bash with his industry friends. That had not been the sort of party with fabricated inebriation, and Marco typically was choosy about who he invited to gatherings of that nature. This was a few days after, and the party was not to take place in the ballroom but, rather, his bedroom, which was more or less a spacious studio apartment. He was baking pizza rolls in the oven. He had a spread of potato chips and Chex Mix and Mountain Dew on his coffee table. He had a birthday cake from the nearest grocery store, because Marco missed the taste of shitty grocery store frosting. The cake was decorated with Disney princesses, and Marco couldn’t wait for everyone to see and roll their eyes at him. He wore jeans and a black T-shirt with the Nintendo logo on it. His hair was loose and relatively free of product. He had the newest Tony Hawk ready to go in his Playstation 2.

He had only sent out three invitations. One to Ax, who was on Earth for a few days. He would come for the food. He sent another one out to Cassie, inventing a guest list that would entice her. He’d thrown her a half hearted question about Tobias, but she was evasive as always. He’d left message after message after message on Jake’s answering machine, pleading and begging, and had finally gotten an annoyed confirmation that he would come. No one knew it would just be the four of them. Dreaming of this evening was what had gotten Marco through the week.

Cassie was the first to cancel. Crisis among the Hork-Bajir, as always. That was fine. It’d just be the boys, then. It wasn’t all lost.

Ax canceled next. That surprised Marco more than anything. He said it had something to do with inner Andalite politics, but Ax was terrible at lying, and Marco eventually got it out of him that he and his fellow Andalite bigwigs had an opportunity to go to Disneyland. Not for the first time, Marco felt like Ax had left his old, nerdy friends to hang out with the popular kids, but in this case the popular kids were fellow members of his species, so Marco tried to have a realistic attitude about it.

Jake just didn’t show.

Marco threw out all the food without eating it.

Witches Of Moonlight Falls [Season 6]; Part 264}
                 —  Anne’s Prayer —-

          Bewitched by the horrors of real witchcraft the unknown soon-to-be wiccans watched drowned in ‘mortal’ shock. If the puritans of Salem town knew what darkness had risen on the streets more souls would perish to the witch trials at the stake and noose than the plague or the Black Death could ever devour!
           Anne couldn’t bring herself to watch such evil, the very power of Satan spawned from a hags hands! She felt as though she would faint at any minute of this late and dark hour but something inside of her possessed her to watch the magic even more and for that she felt sin swelling up inside of her. What would her mother and father say to her? The villagers would have her burnt to death as a witch.
           Mercy on the other hand was so afraid that she couldn’t even move. Frozen like ice the girl was blinded by religion and faith and overwhelmed with shock. The old witch had summoned some kind of blue shimmering fantasia that she was approaching slowly.
Anne nor Mercy would dare alert one in hand with the devil but Anne can not stand by when her family and friends in Salem village could be in grave danger. She will pray for the good people of this town.

Anne: “ Dear God, holy father may you hear me and the Lord Jesus Christ. I place myself at the foot of your cross.” She whispers, hands together in a powerful prayer. She looks up into the Halloween night “I ask you to cover me with your precious blood which pours forth from your most sacred heart and your most holy wounds. Cleanse me, my Jesus in the living water that flows from your heart. I ask you to surround Salem and I my lord with your holy light against the evil that rises…. Amen.”

           As Anne ends her prayer her hair burns a deeper shade of red. No light expels from the sky but the ground heats up underneath the young girls feet almost instantly. God isn’t down there? Did Anne just recite a prayer or something else?

thesnowymeadows  asked:

Okay whoa whoa whoa hold up. What do you mean you still have druids in your family?? That's so cool!

I do! :D Last time I saw them were at an Handfasting (marriage) a few years back (at least the first part of it). It’s all very beautiful, all about dreams, nature and sometimes spirits, with lots of flowers and pretty stones and wood, AND LOTS OF ALCOHOL AND MUSIC! Anyway, yes I do and it’s pretty cool.
