The Adam Messer Show

Hello everyone!

My new podcast is on Anchor.fm

I am doing a daily podcast and posting interviews from my radio show. I interview authors, artists, and entertainers.

Thanks Josh Vasquez for leaving a 5 Star review on Apple podcasts!

Today we smile.

Today we smile.

Life is a long day followed by an early rise.
A friend turned foe with utter despise.
A dark cloud making ominous skies.

Life comes with ups and downs.
Smiles from everyone,
And frowns all around.

Life is a wink and a nod,
With lots of good cheer,
A glare and a snarl,
A snicker and sneer.

Life is good,
And then it is bad.
Happy sometimes,
And sometimes sad.

Life is a fairy tail,
And also it’s not.
Just depends on how you write the plot.

On dark days,
When things are dreary,
Re-write your story
To be happy and cheery.

You may want to laugh,
And sometimes to cry,
But sunshine always helps tears to dry.

Wake each day,
And put last night to rest.
Put a smile on your face,
And give Today your best.

Stephen King’s On Writing audiobook takeaways

I’ve been listening to Stephen King’s On Writing and finished it this morning. Great book and I loved the audiobook.

My takeaways:

  • Write daily.
  • Let my story development flow as I write.
  • Start with a what if situation and move to a story about the people.
  • Write what is true and believable.
  • Use the first word that comes to mind.
  • “He said or she said” is divine.
  • Write to your ideal reader.
  • Write with the door closed, edit with the door open.
  • Writing is not life, life’s interruptions are more important.
  • Be professional and study your craft.
  • Kill your darlings.

Welcome to Monday

Here it is, Monday again.

I work a full time job, and often exhausted when I get home.

My new routine is to write daily and at least 1000 words a day. I wrote 2200 words for my next novel over the weekend.

What is your daily routine for writing?

Since this is new for me, I plan to work through the routine daily, figuring out what schedule works best. I also want to find out what does not work and cut it out.

What works for you? What doesn’t? Which acorns have you planted?
