Sometimes, when you’re writing, you hit the point where you just want to give up. On the current story, maybe, or maybe even on writing altogether. We’ve all been there, I promise. So this post is for me as much as for anything, and it’s as the title says: bookmark it for when you need encouragement. I’ll put this over in the writing articles too so there’s a static page, and I’ll add links as and when I find them. The list ain’t pretty, it’s just a mess of hyperlinks, but every one of these represent something that has helped me rekindle my determination and love of writing–and, most importantly, my confidence–when I’ve had IHATEWRITING patches.
Hopefully, you’ll find it useful too 🙂
