How to create a holiday writing habit.

Ok, so your writing is going on hold for the holidays. Or is it?

With the busy holidays coming soon you won’t feel in the mood for writing, right? Too busy? When you do write, do you write for hours at a time? It’s a drag, right? Here’s a solution for you.

  1. Take hold of your pen and write every day, no matter how little.
  2. If you can’t make time because of looking after children, make them write with you.
  3. Make it fun. Go out and find a place that inspires you and others to write.
  4. Reward yourself and others for your week’s writing.
  5. When on some days it doesn’t come out the way it should, don’t worry about it. Leave it till the next day and go and enjoy the rest of your day.
  6. Give yourself a time limit of 30 minutes a day.
  7. Find an hour to read books of various genres. Get the children to do so too.

It has been proven that writing 30 minutes each day creates a habit of writing. It also helps you improve your writing and communication skills. Writing every day is what all professional writers do. By doing the same you could produce a book in a month. If you have that end in mind, it is time to learn how to. Grab one of our writing courses. We teach you how to plan, write, and advertise your book the professional way. We can help you get published.

Sign up for The Book Summit Course starting at ten lessons for £150. Email a.f.editorial.services@gmail.com for more information. Other 1-1 lessons are available too. See our services and ESOL pages for further information. Whether you need a tutor or an editor we can help you get ready for publication.

Holiday inspiration

Dreams do come true, just make little steps toward your goal.

Do you enjoy the school’s summer holidays, or do you and the children get bored? If bored then that is the time to get writing. What are your dream goals? You know, those things you always want but cannot have at the moment. They won’t happen without writing them down or drawing them. Try doodling too. Ok, let us get down to business. Draw a mind map of how you want to achieve your dream goals. Your goal may be a longterm one that will take a year or two to achieve but it will happen with a few steps.

For each large step that you have written down, one by one break these down into time manageable steps. For example, ‘save for a deposit’, could be broken down into monthly instalments into a savings account over a fixed time period which fits with your main goal. Publishing your own book could be broken into several categories such as writing, editing, cover design, synopsis and more. These can be broken down too such as ‘writing’ into the story planning, first draft, redrafts, design, and final draft. Once you have broken one category into a realistic time period you can fit other steps towards your main goal alongside this. For example, while writing your story plan you can plan your publishing budget savings. These are just some ways of planning to achieve your dream goals.

We offer writing and editing services to writers of all ages and genres. We also help your dreams come true by giving lessons in English and other things such as Arabic, religion, trauma recovery, handcrafts of various types and much more. See our ESOL page for these services. Now you can look forward to the summer holidays with pleasure. We will leave you with some thought.

How to make a story from the mundane routine of life.

Fed up with mundane routine?

Get away for the weekend. Go to a friends home or visit a farm. Having gone away for the weekend, it made one recall that even a change of scene can change your thoughts and affect how you write.

Another thing it made one recall is how this can affect your work and your daily routine. Having come back home the thought came to mind that not only had my view of people changed but so had thoughts about teaching. This all led to thoughts about writing stories.

One idea to help you with writing is make a note of your thoughts and feelings before you go away, then when you return home, write about your thoughts and feelings again. Then compare the two. This could lead to a great story. See if you can make one from this idea. It’s something to think on as you get ready for the long summer holidays.

If you are struggling with writing, speaking and reading English there are one to one lessons available. Contact a.f.editorial.services@gmail.com to arrange a booking. Get £40 off one to one lessons when you book with the code E101. Stop existing and Start living… through better communication.

How to prevent a boring summer.

Hey, the summer holidays will be here soon! Have you realised that you’ve had no time to think about what you and your family will be doing during them? Are you thinking “I’ve no time to plan at the moment”?

Wrong! Now is time to think about what you want to do in the school holidays. Dun dun, dun. Have you thought about starting a writing group in your local area for children? How about taking them on a paper-chase to inspire their writing. It’ll certainly stop them getting bored. But, oh the headache! Get rid of the stress by finding a time to plan.

When is the quietest time in your week or day? Use this time to plan your holidays. It will only take half an hour. Make a weekly schedule that includes an activity that inspires writing creativity and set it for one day a week. This will give everyone something to look forward to. It also gives parents something to motivate their children with. It may even help teachers create ideas to cheer up classes after the holidays.

It is also the time to start planning for what you personally want to happen in the long summer holidays. Try making a schedule for you that gives you a day out each week. If you are a writer maybe you could plan your holiday to include someplace where you can retreat to for writing inspiration. That is especially needed when you have children and need some ‘me time’. Even if it is only a couple of days, it will give you the chance to write your first draft.

If you need help with story planning and writing there are 1-1 lessons available in many subjects such as Arabic, English, self-help, crochet designing and much more. A package of 20 lessons in ESOL for £260 is on offer for anyone needing 1-1 help but cannot afford the fees which are double this for classroom-based tuition in college. They will be taught over Skype, email, or at home, and even in the school holidays. Email a.f.editorial.services@gmail.com for more information.

A few ideas to get you writing a story.

 Story prompts and more.

Can you write a sentence of six words in under a minute containing the word: Coprolalia

  • What does it mean?

  • What is something that you haven’t done for a long time?
  • What is your biggest dream?
