Writer Friends & Stars – The Similarities #SundayBlogShare #NaNoWriMo18 #Writers

#writers #stars

Writer friends are special human beings.

As I am battling my way through NaNoWriMo and having to call on my writer friends for encouragement, I thought I would dedicate a post to writer friends everywhere.

Here’s a list of similarities between writer friends and stars:

  • There are an unfathomable number of stars in the universe and there an unfathomable amount of potential new writer friends across all forms of social media.
  • Sometimes when you are feeling glum you can look up to the night sky and get comfort from the stars. The same goes for writer friends. When you are struggling to find your way with writing or a little bit emotional (about your stinky first draft or a persistent grammar issue) you only have to look up into the Twitter night sky to see your writer friends twinkling (or tweeting) and you instantly feel better again.
  • As poet Gift Guga Mona once said, ‘When stars shine, they bring light in darkness,’ – this sums up writer friends!
  • Sometimes the stars are hidden behind clouds but you know they are there. The same applies to writer friends, you might not be able to see them, but you know they are always there…on email, Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp.
  • Writer friends enjoying literary success are like shooting stars that light up and whoosh across the night sky.  Technically speaking a shooting star is not a star, it’s a meteor, but lets stick with the shooting star fantasy here.
  • Stars make you smile and writer friends make you smile.
  • Stars in the sky are constantly going through pressure and chemical changes. Writer friends experience different types of pressure and chemical changes when their books about to be launched, taking part in NaNoWriMo or going through a painful editing stage.
  • The birth of a star can be quite dramatic to observe and the same can be said when watching the birth of a new writing friendship.
  • When writer friends quit writing they can go out with a dramatic bang (creative strop) bit like a supernova. For noting if I quit writing I am going out in a dramatic way.
  • Stars are beautiful and so too are writer friends!

Have a great day and I hope you all keep twinkling!

  1. yeah, go on, you’re a star to me; I’m always inspired to go back to comedy when I read Roxy. Maybe you don’t realise how much of an inspiration your mix of humour and heart on the sleeve advice is. Am I allowed to ask how Nano goeth for one?

    1. Thank you. NaNo has been a godsend. Not been able to finish anything for ages and I think NaNo has been like a strict teacher to me. Am on 22,248 and the best bit – making it up as I go along. The idea came to me over breakfast on 1st Nov and went from there,

  2. Awww… that’s really nice. I think yo’re a pulsar, you radiate out energy that’s brilliant dimming a bit becasue the creative energy has left you a bit, but once that flows back into you again you shine brightly for everyone again. Keep going Lucy 🙂
