#throwbackthursday: Do you believe in people who would want to make a career out of writing?

I’ve never stopped believing in others who want to make a career in something that they love to do; unless they haven’t got the passion or self driven to help themselves to push themselves forward to do it, if they expect to have it handed to them. Then why should I even bother trying to help them at all.
I always have time and see people’s potential in them if they want to write them write; I can help them as much as I can with knowledge, experience and how I work around the difficult times when it comes to a writer’s block. I help a blogger out time to time; when they don’t PROOF READ THERE WORK! Haha I know at the best of times it’s hard to see where the wrong places are or you’re not sure where you put your grammars. Even if your grammars are in the right place or not.

I even get them wrong half the time. It’s not easy. It just practice and get someone to help you or have someone secretly do it for you and email them to you. That’s what I do to be honest and I get the whole OMG! Or that’s cool. I’ve only get like one whole blog needs correcting or just one or two paragraphs needed editing. I like it even better that I don’t have to do anything at all.

I’m like yay night off from proofreading someone’s work. I always make sure that I write my blog posts or stories out by hand or on a word document because I can proof read my work as I’m going along. I don’t read many books but when I do it takes me a month or so to read them; but that’s me struggling with reading anyways due to learning difficulties, however reading other people’s blogs, reading over my stories and blogs I can prove my reading other ways. You have to find away that suits you because it’s not work but being a better writer you have to proof read your work before hitting the publish button.

Plan what your going to write out on a word document or be old school and write it out on piece of paper because at the end of the day that’s the only way to learn and teach yourself to learn from your mistakes as a writer. This isn’t a nag just away to help you proof your writing skills.

What is the Extras?

Behind the scenes with Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging; is coming or you have seen popping up from time to time, along with the rest of the major events. Here’s why.


The reason why I feel that every event should have an extra blog to it; because sometimes I feel like not a lot happens on the actual event, your like waiting for so long for the event weather it’s in the morning or in the evening. So I thought hey why not have a bit more of a teaser to get you going whilst your waiting. 

Sometimes I feel too eager to wait for the following week to schedule you for that week; so I thought I might as well what about try to do an extra blog once in a while, by the way I do tend to talk to myself when I have these ideas. I either go along with it or I don’t. Most of the time I do go along with it; then I generally don’t go along with it when I start doing the blogs, I’m like what am I writing here? Or I don’t even like this blog so why am I writing about it this title for because I’m just not feeling it. I’m just not feeling the love or compassion from it all. 

I know I’m strange; like I’m talking to a blank piece of paper on my iPad screen, no one does that? Then your weird; yes you the one in the middle picking your nose and eating it, that’s just weird and gross and your here to learn not being board out of your skull and picking your brains out. 

Anyways back to what is extras? Extras is not about that muppet called Ricky Gravis whatever he calls himself; he’s just not that runny, he’s the most annoying high pitched guy who just needs a punch or something. I am so not a violent person what so ever; extras in my blogging world is when you have something, that is most exciting news or something that you can’t wait for the following week. You have just got to share the information with your readers; that’s what the extras are for, along with the hype for the day’s actual event it self. 

I am most likely rambling on this one haha. If I’m not heyho it’s Monday and it’s the start of the week; who needs to be serious at the start of the week, good tip I always find is if you find away of making people laugh in your blogs. Good on you. You can’t always be serious all the time; there is a will, there’s away. Like for example in my Tom Kennedy’s blog stories/notes; in my first story that I’ve published, Invisible Man Part 1,2 & 3 I had to make it more fun and funny because if the story was slow and boring. You will loose your audience/readers; you need to be diverse in your writing or vlooging or whatever you do, because at the end of the day who will be coming back for more to read or watch your blogs. The same people who you caught the attention off.

I think you should give it ago personally; let your hair down, run free with it all. So tempted to close my window now; getting mighty freezing even though I’ve been sweating like a pig, not Miss Piggy guys come on. It a Thursday night and I’m planning this with my window open; that really didn’t sound right did it, all well actually black clouds are coming over don’t particularly want to get wet in the middle of the night.

Why didn’t I think of using IBooks for blogging/story writing?


Why didn’t I think of using iBooks for blogging/story writing?

The day I realised that I could use iBooks to save printables from Pinterest has given me the best way to keep hold of the originals and etc. It’s crazy you know; everytime I click on the a printable that I like the look of I would go via the internet to save it, not realising that I can save it in the iBooks. 

It’s amazing! Should use it more often as I thought it was just for books only; clearly not haha, I’m not blonde honestly I’m not. I like finding things the hard way most of the time; that’s the best way to learn if you ask me, until you cannot do it that’s when you ask for advice. 

How do you finish off the month with blogs?


How to finish off the month with blogs?

To be able to finish off a month with blogs I generally find it hard in some months but not in all the months; this month especially I’ve been grateful to get monjority of it all to done in one day so I can focus next months a gender, whatever that maybe when it comes we will find out. 

Having a day to be able to think, write, post or schedule for the next day or the few days later; is a god send because I don’t have to worry about it on the day, if I’m so tired or not feeling well or I’m busy for whatever reasons it is, I have something in place ready and not having to worry about the whole problem with what to write. All I have to worry is the paper work afterwards; which is confusing if I haven’t done anything over the month but luckily I have sorted out a system on which I’m hoping that it will work better next month than this month, as it’s all over the place.

To be able to just plan a head of the week is the best time today if you can; knowing what day goes where what the topic that you used, also to be able to have them in their correct sections/categories when your writing them out and that’s when you know you’ve done them if you had labeled at the bottom in red with a subject line before it saying when you have written, when you have completed, when you published it or schedule it and most importantly what categories you have put them under so you know what you have done. All of this helps me in a long run so that I can be able to update my own paperwork and have a look of what I have done. 

3 Things that I always have with me and why


Introduction 

Blogging is also part of Writing Career; it’s another foundation of becoming a writer by its own trade, a trade that people lots of people think they aren’t doing much and they are doing it just for fun. If you think about it. If you ask a teenager these days; “what do you do after school for fun?” I write blogs or I make YouTube videos, they don’t even realise they are still learning. It’s a catch 22 they really don’t see that they’ve been caught out. That’s another topic for next time I think; I may of opened up a can of worms on that one, I believe. 

3 Things that I have with me and why

Recently I’ve just got myself back into taking things that I may need when or if I come up with an idea. The three things that I take with me are, a notebook, stationary that I need and my ipad; I only take my iPad if I know that I’m going to be away from the house longer than I anticipated, however if I had my notebook and Post It’s etc I should be able to get by. 

The reason I have these things is because I never know when I get an idea; weather I’m on my breaks at work, if I’m out and about or even when I’m just at home there’s always ideas coming to mind that needed to be done. 

I always find that having these things on me are useful because it’s better than having make up in my bag to top up my face or my lips. You don’t really need to top of your face or anything if you have done it properly and the way you do it. Having the things that I really need is the ones that I can use when people need a piece of paper; like taking people’s orders when we are out having lunch somewhere different, it comes handy to have for to record. 

Oh for the love of writing! How much stuff have I got? 


Oh for the love of writing! How much stuff have I got?

My parents had moved a big green arm chair that once belonged to my great nan on my mum’s dad side of the family; they had to move it for my grandparents to use for their health reasons, one of my parents came in to ask me to sort out some folders that were left underneath the chair at the time. I went down to go and get them. Once I have brought them up; as I looked through I didn’t realise how much notes, stories and etc I had. 

My god I didn’t realise how much I gone through in my late teens when I was back at college 17-21 years old; the love of writing I did back then was truly amazing, it gave me that sense of wellbeing of joy and happiness that I loved about writing. It just gave me the greatest achievement, sense of achievement and accomplishment of being able to do something like creative writing and blogging to a whole knew level. 


Literally 3 files worth of old notes and stories that I use to write; on which now I am determined to carry on, achieving knowing that I can do this once and for all. Anyone can achieve their dreams if they can believe in themselves and work hard in what they want to do in life.

How to plan a full notebook and a full works of a story notebook


Introduction 

Today I’ve written this last night watching Eurovision; I’m kind of trying to distracting myself a lot as I’ve been in the most of the grumpiest most all day not sure what it was all about, but I’m fine now. 

How to plan a full notebook and a full works of a story notebook 

How to plan a notebook full of notes:

Planning a notebook full of notes for stories is quite easy really; whatever piece of scrap of paper or post it’s that you lay your hands on is the best thing as you do, having full of the notes in the notebook you can use your notes for all different stories. Over the years when I’m making notes I try different ways; like titling them if it’s for a perceive story to help me to remember it, put dates on them on which I’ve recently done and when I completed that post it if it’s part of a story that I’m writing, little bits of things that could be used as a story that I could stick in my notebook, notes from word documents or pages depending on what I’m using like laptop or iPad most things now I use iPad. 

But nevertheless I have used up all my favourite notebooks that I can’t even get the same ones; they either don’t have them in stock or the stationary has brought out new range, so I have to get comfortable with the one I pick up at the time. Even though I have loads in like three box fulls of notebooks but yet it’s not the right one or I’m not ready to use it just yet.

I just love playing around with the ideas and creating ways of using my notebooks from post it’s – just bullet points so that I can get my self interested and keep myself occupied. If you see my lizzysweeklyblogs notebooks it has loads of different ways of having notes on; from pen to paper, pen to post it’s, pen to scrap pieces of paper and printer ink to paper. I just love how full one book can get with full of ideas, notes, reminders and many more. Knowing that you created those ideas yourself and it’s a positive thing to do.

How to plan a notebook full of stories: 
I prefer the old fashion way with pen to paper because it’s nice for me to practice reading, writing and spelling for me in a long run. The reason being is that being dyslexic and having language difficulties I try and not give up on doing what I love the most; yeah I fight and cry with it all but at the end of the day, I chose to do it no one told me to do. I could easily give up and use my learning difficulties as an advantage card; but I didn’t at the end of the day, I like the A5 size notebooks because they aren’t so intimidating than the A4 books or single pages. Unless I have to use an a4 book or piece of paper to scribble notes on that’s fine because I’m not using it as a story board. 

Never like A4 size paper anyways even when I did my exams because they seemed intimidating for me; I don’t know what it is but it’s like you have to full up loads of words, more ideas to make it more blocky meaning you have to fill the whole page up. With my I’m like having a mini panic attack because I can’t see to find any ideas or anything like that to fill it up.

You may find your a lot better with A4 size books than I am; it really does depend on what you are capable of using, along with your style of writing to be honest with you. Fulling up a notebook with a story is a great way to show that you have writing your first full draft out from all of your notes from your notes in your notebook; into one whole story which makes you even more prouder than anything, then you can type it up with the software that you use on any technology that you use at the time. 

I find it easier typing it up afterwards because I can add more into the story or take bits out or change things around; that’s the whole point of editing but I do find it at times intimidating still, if I’m in the frame of mind of how long do I get to reach the bottom and so on. I’m still like it after I printed it all off and have to read it all over again; then that’s when I start screaming and give up, unless I get someone else to read it over for me and edit it all so that I don’t have to worry about it all. Unless I’m reading it with someone out loud and make the changes with them then it’s far more easier than done. 

Ooh I just had an idea. I can do it with a few family members; ah that’s the best idea I have ever had in my life, you guys are amazing. Also just to let you know when I was writing this blog; didn’t really think much and it’s gone two pages and a bit, how amazing is that. 

If you would like anymore tips let me know and I’ll give you some more or do a blog for it so can have a read through and make notes. I have attached somewhere a photo of my two current books that I use for my stories and ideas for them. They are actually detected to one particular story because I like to keep them separate from the rest and I’m actually focusing on a story for it. Might share a snippet for you on the blog when it’s done.

What are you currently working on?


Introduction 

Fell in love with story writing once again; as I haven’t managed to get any creative juices to put pen to paper for a very long time, but since the past couple of days of reworking with May and the whole Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays events it’s given me great pleasure to be able to rework with my love for stories again. 

What am I currently working on?

Not like I have fallen out with it or anything; it’s just that at the best of times I struggle what to write, like I struggle with blogs when I don’t know what to write. I know I haven’t done an everyday blog for awhile but this one came to my head; so that means if something comes to my head, I’ll write it down and post it up. Please bare with me on that one. 

With this writing career I would like to be able to expand my short stories; but also share some of the stories with you that I’m writing, on which I’m going to share my favourite all time long running stories that I’ve been writing for a long time. However this shows that I want to see how much you really like the thought of these stories; if you do like them and won’t more of them, then I know I have a winner right there and give me more courage to expand them from online to publishing them. However I am giving this a trail for now to see what you might think of them; so keep an eye out to see what’s new, with the blog and also give me your opinion of what you may think of the stories when they arrive. I have one in the making for blog; please be patient with me as it’s taken me awhile to do so, also lots of planning has to go into it.

Write about why you started blogging/writing 


Introduction 

For the first official blog for Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging; I thought Monday can be kicked off with, why I started to blogging/writing. On which that everyone can get the feel of the way I write and the way I express certain matter of opinions in that way on this. So welcome to a new week and a new event every Monday at 9:00 am enjoy.

Write about why you started blogging/writing

In this blog I’m stripping right back to the beginning; when I first ever fell in love with writing, up until now you can see the progress of how far I have come. This has to be the most truest story I have ever told; so there will be patches in places as I can’t remember something’s in places, true fact as I try and forget my past as much as possible. It may make you cry; it may not, who knows but for now writing is my life and my friend to get me through the days, weeks, months and even years. 

Now let me think. It has to be the age of 5 or 6 years old; when I wasn’t talking, writing or anything like that I don’t think. When my sister was born and she was barely 18 months old we were walking around Tesco Supermarket; my sister nearly had my mum in tears because she had picked up that my mum was worried about something, my sister said at the time “I’m really worried about you mummy” my mum was like she has nearly 18 month old daughter social analysing her to a 5/6 who can barely talk. 

My mum had tired everything; from getting me tested for autism to hearing impairment which you can most likely guess, it was hearing impairment. This was because I was deaf; from a young age, I use to breakdown crying and would be prettified of loud sounds because I couldn’t hear them until it was right on top of me. Even if my parents told me they were coming it wouldn’t make any difference what so ever; they still had to protect me and calm me down, as the noise was unbearable at the time. 

For years I was getting hearing test done, grommets done and etc but for the first time I could hear; I was down at the Jarvis centre/ speech and language place to be able to help me talk, write and etc that’s when I began to write down what I could hear, what I could see but what the most important thing was what I could hear. 

I didn’t read as much over the years because I know how frustrating it is because reading a book would take me months to read and I get board quite easily. I can read but not that often as I see my mum reading a book and she’ll read a book in a day or a week. So there is a rare chance of anyone seeing me reading a book to be honest unless it’s something that might interest me and I’ll give it ago. 

I prefer pen to paper and write stories of my own; read them, edit them and read them again. My best audience is my sister as she helped me to write some of them and edit them in the way that she grew up with the the stories that I had wrote. If it wasn’t for my sister and inspiration for my love of writing more; I think I wouldn’t of found blogging a lot easier than doing video blogging, she’s more camera person than I am. Nearly every pocket money went on notebooks and pens; no change there for my wage packet either I don’t think, haha that’s if I could spend money on things like that. Blooming love Paperchase stationary. 

I have never stopped writing in notebooks; even if I have upgraded to technology but they won’t last for ever will they, better stick with the whole notebook and pen. First top tip always, always have a notebook and print of any of your blogs as back up. Never really trust technology; especially these days you never know who’s going to hack them or when they are going to break, believe me you hear them all the time on the news and etc. 

I hope haven’t bored you into tears, or made you cry or anything like that would give you a tissue but I’m not to sure if I can pass you one through the screen. Probably slap you first or give you a shake first then give you a tissue. Haha I wouldn’t do that to you I’m not that mean. May enjoy your day; whatever you are doing, no you may not fall down a hole. If you did rather have an invite first then I’ll join you and just laugh. Haha not even sure if this was a pun or not let you decide.
