Strivers and Other Stories
by Robert J. Williams

Write when you don’t feel like writing

Write as much as you can! Write when you don’t feel like writing. Sometimes that’s the only thing that will break down any roadblocks you might encounter. Also, share your writing and don’t be afraid to ask for critiques. We can never get better if we don’t first accept that we’re not perfect. If you think your writing sucks and should be hidden forever, you’re probably doing something right. People who tout about how great their writing is are usually not very good. Just remember to be humble when you receive praise and kind when you receive criticism.

Create small goals

Produce. Create small goals and just continue to meet those goals to produce a finished product. Having a bad product is one step beyond having no product at all.

Strivers and Other Stories
by Robert J. Williams

Author Andrew Mackay

Write and Author interviews Andrew Mackay, author of The Teacher: How to Survive the Teaching Profession Without Losing Your S**t (In Their Shoes Book 1)
 
A novelist, screenwriter and former teacher, Mackay is the creator of groundbreaking satire series ‘In Their Shoes’; the hilarious and often shocking journey of fictional newbie journalist Joy Attwood. The first two books in the series (The Teacher and The Actor) are best sellers in Amazon’s “satire” category (UK and US).
 
Self-proclaimed "Antisocial Justice Warrior" Mackay is also founder of Chrome Valley Books - “The Home of Dangerous Fiction”. Never knowingly inoffensive, his works often contain a ruthless commentary on society, delving into the more darker and disturbing machinations of modern life - but always with a sense of humanity and wit.
 
His influences include John Cleese, Tom Sharpe, Kurt Vonnegut, James Patterson, Hunter S Thompson, Douglas Adams, Imogen Edwards-Jones, Michael Frayn, Chris Morris, Jerry Sadowitz, Christopher Hitchins, Bill Maher, George Carlin, Milo Yiannopoulos and Larry Cohen.
 
One of the UK's most dedicated provocateurs and contrarians, his obsessions include (and are essentially limited to) unhealthy amounts of: smoking, drugs, alcohol, caffeine, sex, arguing, fighting, vandalism, conjuring up hilarious and nasty situations for his characters and writing about himself in the third person.
 

Splitting the sky

It was a dark and stormy night, but bursts of lightning were flashing across the darkness. You blink, thinking the storm is playing tricks on your mind. A rift is beginning to open, splitting the sky.

Know you are a writer

1. Know you are a writer. Some people are strong enough to know it intrinsically - others, like me, need outside feedback to remind us we are writers at heart. I have a quill tattoo on my right wrist to remind me that no matter what job I have in this life, I am, at heart, a writer. 

2. Denials are normal. Out of my 128 submissions on my Submittable account, only 11 are "Accepted." 81 are "Denied."

3. Be daring enough to look inside yourself for inspiration. Sit in a quiet room and feel your pulse. Search within your memories to create inspirational prompts and stories.
