Writers Struggle Two Hangout: Vent, Encourage, Ask, etc

writing

#643

Should I wait to post the bonus chapters at the end of the book, or should I put them with the chapter they correspond to?


#644

End of the book with a reference to the chapter. Otherwise it’ll be messy


#645

How do you write if you’re extremely tired and your creativity nopes out?


#646

Strap your hands to the keyboard and tape eyes open

Honestly, my real answer is almost the same. I usually put on some music I feel will go well with whatever I’m trying to write and force myself to put words on the page. Doesn’t have to be good, just has to be something.


#647

It’s hard to say. Usually I have more luck with editing or reading when I am exhausted.


#648

Drink coffee and listen to really loud music


#649

Am I the only one who just sleeps?


#650

Sleeping is hard when bad memories haunt you when you’re awake and nightmares when you’re asleep…

But yes, I’m trying that


#651

Are you narrating the beginning to an Underworld sequel.


#652

I am not.


#653

Life’s gonna be okay, I promise.


#654

I hope things get better.


#655

Me too. Never had backlash last four days


#656

Man, the drop off rate on my book is insane. 175~ reads and 75 of them are on the first chapter. :confused:


#657

That’s not bad for retention.


#658

What do you mean?


#659

Reader retention, usually lots more people drop book after ch1. It’s free, so peeps don’t invest unless they are crazy about it.


#660

Yeah. I guess so.

Now that I am learning how to code in html, I can do this stuff. Sweet! I’m still a little sad.


#661

Hello! I need some encouragement and to vent. Have I come to the right place?


#662

Yup
