Podcast and Such

Some of you may know that I have a podcast with two of my buddies, Lyra and Lizzie. We talk about all sorts of things on it, like media, ships, writing, representation, women in media, TV shows we love, movies we can’t get enough of, and so much more.

Well, a fun and exciting thing we’ve decided to do for Season 2 is have a monthly Patreon, where we hope to build a community for everyone who loves fandom, movies, TV, and more. If that’s your thing, please take a gander!

As far as book stuff goes! I know that a few of you were wondering what I’m up to! I’ve currently got Controllers up on all the usual places for you, so yay! But I’ve also started writing the next book in the Dreamer Chronicles. Julie Aim is taking aim. Ha. I’ll stop. I have no dates, no nothing, beyond a desire to let you know that she’s my priority right now with my novels.

Thanks to all of you who have purchased Controllers. You’re my superheroes, and I adore you!

It’s the only secret that’s good to keep. ; ) Seriously, though, let me know if you like in the reviews! I love you all, and I hope that you’ll stick around to the next! I’ll have some more musings and stuff to talk about this week.

Write Right

Hello, friends.

I’ve seen some garbage advice floating around on the interwebs that talks about how if you don’t write everyday, you might as well give up on the entire thing and retire to a nice monastery, where you spend you’re life contemplating your failures as the next great novelist. This, fortunately for busy people everywhere, is utter nonsense.

Let me tell you a secret. All these sites that are fostered for giving you the “perfect formula” to writing success are wrong. There is no magic equation of writing x hours a day and achieving the greatness of infinity and adoring love of the masses. These people want to sell you things and feed off your anxiety. And along the way, after article after article telling you you’re doing it wrong, you get convinced that if you just write a little more, you find all the success you could ever need.

Ignore the hell out of this terrible, terrible advice.

The truth of the matter is that sometimes people who write eight hours a day never see success, and those who manage two hours a week sell bestsellers. Practice makes you suck a little less, sure, but the essence of writing isn’t in how many hours a day you spend at it. It’s whether you have the passion to come to it over and over again, after long absences, around busy days, whether your characters won’t shut up, whether you have a story you need to get out, and whether or not it makes your heart sing when you do it. If you can’t write every single day, fine. Don’t. Write when you feel inspired, so that your story isn’t a basket of suck. Write when you can focus completely. Write at your pace. Don’t write if you’re not feeling it. Come at it when your brain is engaged, when you feel fresh and present. Cater to yourself; love what you have to offer in those moments and realize it’s good enough.

The key to writing successfully is listening to yourself. It’s in doing what fits your brain, your schedule, and your heart. I promise you that if you miss a day it’s not going to be the destruction of your budding writing career. It’s a grain of sand on a great big beach. You’ll be fine. Your screenplay, or novel, or poem, or whatever will be fine. Don’t pressure yourself, have structure if you need it, be honest with yourself and your characters, and keep your passion. Everything else is just personal preference.

You’ve got this. Keep writing.

Heeyyyyyyy

So, I’ve been locked out of my website! It was a technical glitch that I couldn’t get them to fix for me. I had to do Kung Fu, Yoga, and gymnastics to find my way back to you, which means the old page disappeared into the ether, lost forever! *Sigh.

I know it’s been a while. I’m half convinced even this post won’t get to you. But I’d love to know how you’ve been! Let’s catch up!

As for me, I’ve been doing stuff! You can see some of that stuff on Twitter @LynniePurcell. Cause I’m there. Talking about the world, people, and my books. I’m also here now, and I want to tell you some things.

The first of which is that I do have a sequel to Controllers. It’s called Interface!

The release date is June 20, 2017. That’s less than a month!

How excited am I, you ask? One hundred percent times a billion.

This is a Dystopian Science Fiction bonaza of epic proportions, and follows Bree Carson, the hero we all need right now as she fights against the powers that be, and I’m excited to finally get it out to you. I know some of you are excited about other books, and I promise I haven’t abandoned anything, but let’s focus on this one before we get to the others, okay? Okay. I promise we’ll get there.

Also, do ya want a sneak peek of the cover? Well, you’re getting one anyways!

Lynnie's Project Final 2

I’ll have pre-orders available soon!

I’m so in awe of those of you who have stuck with me and continue to support my writing. ┬áTruly. Thank you so much. I love you all. XOXOXO
