Many authors find it easy to become overwhelmed, to feel as if they’re behind in their goals. The words just don’t come. Or, if they do, they are clunky and pathetic.
This feeling of heaviness can slow us up even further — so much so that we can forget why we do what we do. We forget there are readers “out there, somewhere” waiting for that next release. We forget that any pandemic-related heaviness will eventually pass as well.
Sometimes we even forget the love of words that launched us as readers and, not long after, as writers.
In an effort to lighten the mood and to celebrate those wonderful building bloccks that allow us to do what we do, we started to celebrate word nerd Wednesdays. Members of our team create delightful graphics, celebrating the words we love. They are light and social and (we hope) lots of fun.
If you’re on social media, you can find our offerings on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram where you can “like, comment, or suggest new words for consideration. In fact, if you have any favorites you’d like us to add to the queue, please add them in the comments below.
