What Every Writer Ought To Do Over The Summer

Summer is almost here! I can’t believe time has passed by so quickly. I am definitely looking forward to being more productive this summer by writing, reading, dancing, and blogging more. Exams (for me) start next week but I have already started to plan out what I am going to do after exams.

So without further ado, I will generalize my plans to suit the title of what writers should try to do or at least think about doing during the summer months. When summer comes, you won’t be bored.

  1. Start a blog if you haven’t already
  2. If you do have a blog, continue maintaining it by posting frequently
  3. Start a Twitter account if you haven’t already or continue making a prescence for yourself online
  4. Organize your gigantic collection of books
  5. Submit work to online contests/competitions and everywhere possible because you never know what may come out of it
  6. Clean your work space up to declutter your mind
  7. Write a novel or two
  8. Learn a new skill you always wanted to learn, whatever that may be
  9. Take some time and reward yourself doing whatever makes you happy (e.g. yoga, knitting, cooking)
  10. Practice your craft, hone your skills, and sharpen your pencils
  11. Keep a journal or diary for the entire summer
  12. Make mistakes and learn from them
  13. Catch up on some sleep for all the nights you stayed up late to meet a deadline
  14. Try to believe in yourself, in your voice, in your work, and in everything that you do
  15. Read, read, read!
