A Writer’s Workshop

Have you ever wanted to write a story but always ended up not finishing it because of a mean old writing block.

Maybe you have no clue about the writing process? Or you have trouble with plotting and just don’t know where to throw yourself.

Hey nobody’s perfect, right? Besides a fast written story wouldn’t be such a masterpiece!

Enter my Writer’s Workshop! Sorry if I knew I had visitors coming I would of build a bridge. Guess you are going to need to hop on!

Welcome to A Writer’s Workshop!

First, I would like to mention that I do not claim that this Workshop’s content is the best. I am an aspired author myself.

Crawl in!

– Have you passed the spiders yet! Yelled the crazy dude waiting at the platform section…

– Oh…Hey! I was expecting someone less dirty…

“The Writer’s Block”

Let’s start with what I think of the famous “Writer’s block”. Personally, I think it is a work of fiction… you literally need a break. Inspire yourself by doing some amazing research, Reading. The magic could even happen while you are watching different movies of your interest. But remember it’s always good to take a break, once in a while. Create space for Inspiration, free write circled ideas and then get active. You could do so by working out, doing housework or even get out of your writing dungeon!

Climb back up, mate! Next, we will talk about what I find is the next important step. I will be up by the HUGE tree ready to tell you about how important it is to have a writing schedule.

A content creation schedule improves quality and consistency. This will be a short version of the writer’s clock. Let’s keep it fun and go into detailed works further in our journey. Here is a quick example of what the basic schedule is.

⦁ Researching, Pre-Writing, Drafting, Revising, Editing, Publishing.
⦁ Write, Correction, Reading, Meditate.
⦁ Studying, Writings projects, Social Media Check-up.

⦁ Nutrition, Rest, Workout, and Entertainment.

A Writer’s Workout?

Well, no dumb, dumb. I am simply saying you should balance things in order to a be healthy person! 

  • You may stop with the pen pushups now it ain’t funny anymore

50 % brain and 50% body health is the key to a healthy writing journey and lifestyle. 

Here is a suggested schedule feel free to complete it. I would be more than happy to read your essays!

Monday: Brainstorm a list of reasons why you shouldn’t do this homework. Choose an audience, select 2 points from your brainstorm and target my audience. Arrange the point into a specific order. Then think about how ironic it is that you are doing homework about why you shouldn’t be doing it.

Tuesday: Write 2 paragraphs.

Wednesday: Let my essay sit around for the day

Thursday: Reread your essay out loud and laugh at your mistakes. Then change what you want to make better.

Friday: Reread the essay from your printed sheet of paper. Not from your computer screen. Change anything you need to. Feel free to choose the format you like.

Saturday: Sit back and relax because you complete all your work. You are good to go!

Sunday: Hand in publishment to

The writing process

The writing process can be fun if it is well organized. Here is what I find a respectful writing process. To help you keep track of your process I suggest using the simple checklist method.

Step 1 Prewriting: 

Step 2 Drafting:

Step 3 Editing:

Step 4 Proofreading:

Step 5 Publishing:

There are different ways to process it really depends on the writer I suggest everybody should try their own schedules to see what fits them best. Here are different examples.

If you aren’t familiar with the terms, do not worry I will be mentioning them later on.

1. Research – Set time limits

2. Plot

3. Blog

4. Write

5. Read and edit – Set time limits

6. Send to beta reader/editor

7. Edit – Set time limits

8. Format and publish

Hint – You should never write and edit at the same time
