#Writespiration 75 Write About The Rusty Thing

I’ve been at it again, writing another short story for Sacha Black. I definitely recommend you follow her if you want to bring the writer out of you. I suggest you read the other entries for this edition of Sacha’s Writespiration series, some very impressive entries on show by some very talented writers!

Sacha Black

Write about the rusty thingWithout sounding dramatic, which I always do, I love an apocalypse. In fact, I’m sort of obsessed with them. Or more, obsessed with the settings that they give. I love dystopian novels, anything decrepit, broken down and battered. But maybe this prompt takes you in another direction.

I’m still going to write these prompts and publish your stories, but for the next month, I won’t be participating. I have gotten a bit snowed under, and need to readjust my time spent, so that I can finish the two novels I am working on. But I’ll be back, in a month. Promise!

Here’s mine:

Writing – a blessing and a curse.

Write Without Fear. Edit Without Mercy.

Not a lot said but it packs a punch. Write courageously & edit passionately, a lack of belief and complacency will stop you reaching your full potential.


“A Writer Is A World Trapped In A Person.”

I guess there really is a world trapped inside me. Given what I’ve written about since I started blogging and given that I’m a frequent daydreaming. This seems perfectly normal to me.

How Bloggers and Freelancers Can Maintain Integrity


Surfing the web as you do when I found this article about the dilemma writers face when it comes to their content. Choosing between pleasing the editors by exaggerating your content in order to gain more likes and views or staying true to yourself, keeping the integrity of your work at the forefront of your content. Going with the latter may mean less views and less likes but at least the conscience of the writer can sleep easy knowing that they haven’t strayed from the path they set for themselves, staying true to their beliefs and goals.

At the end of the day, writers like ourselves want to gain exposure but for the right reasons and in the right way. We want our viewers to learn something in the time they spent reading our content. For me, it’s simple, go with quality over quantity, your audience will come back not because of sensationalised stories, they will come back because they like you as a writer and your work will speak for yourself. If you have a purpose as to why you write and if you express your passion about the topics you write about, the positive energy you put into your blogs and websites will be absorbed by the readers who will have a purpose to read your blogs, to read your websites, to buy into the things that breathe live into your existence. From this will breed the satisfaction you crave whilst also gaining a healthy amount of views if enough people feel the same way as you.

Thanks to Rachael for writing the article, I definitely found that it resonated with me, with why I first started to blog. The link to article is below.
