If you like my traditional work just as much as my digital work, then I'd appreciate if you would chip in a few points to show your support! ^^
When and How to EditLit Basics WeekWhen and How to Edit by neurotype
Earlier in the week I got into what editing is and how to love it. Now, let's talk about the entrée following this apéritif: when to edit, and how to do it. And, perhaps even more importantly, how to stop.
Stop, you say?!
Yeah, it's really not that hard to get caught up in this perfectionist funk where all you do is wind around in circles on the same piece. Curb it from the beginning by having an idea of where you want to end. What should the reader walk away thinking about? What should the reader walk away feeling? Do things move fast enough to be interesting?
I stop editing when I get to a point where all my edits are just minor wording tweaks. At that point I'll go back and forth, and I'm not even changing the overall impression the story creates. If it's not productive, it's not worthwhile.
Now that we've gotten dessert out of the way:
How to Stay Inspired and Focused on Your WritingLiterature Basics WeekHow to Stay Inspired and Focused on Your Writing by LaBruyere
Our world is so full of noise and distraction. It’s no wonder “Walden” is a classic—Thoreau had time and quiet in which to write it! And plenty of inspiration from nature.
So how do we focus, as writers, on our craft? Even if it’s our passion, sometimes it takes a lot of effort to sit down and just write—especially if we struggle with attention or hyperactivity, whether diagnosed or not.
As someone who has studied both academic writing and reading in college and graduate school, and a veteran of National Poetry Writing Month for 7 years and National Novel Writing Month for one, I can attest that intentional writing, for fun or for a grade, is not easy to focus on, especially without a good writing environment.
So what to do? Many professional writers will tell you just one simple thing: write. James Patterson said, “The trick is making writing into a daily habit. Same time. Same place. Same hot beverage of choice.

I'm 19, and I'm a Freelance Artist (I make a living off of art commissions) and 2D Animator. I draw Anime/Manga and Fantasy style art. My Career interests include Concept Art, Story Boarding, Comic Book Art, and 2D Animation!
I'm a huge fan of: Yu-Gi-Oh!, Attack on Titan, Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, Danganronppa: The Animation, RWBY, and more things to come!
I really enjoy video games and tabletop RPGs like D&D and Pathfinder. I like the art of League of Legends a lot, but I don't play. A huuuuge number of my friends do though.
My upcoming story concepts include: "Hitsuzen", "Elemental P.D.", "Elemental Infantry" and "Guardian Angel"
I'm always learning and wish to improve my art and see how I can take storytelling to the next level. Hope you enjoy my gallery! ^^
