Summer is quickly approaching, and it won’t be long now until the kids are out of school for summer break. While I’m not a fan of the humidity that hits Kentucky in the summer, I am a fan of relaxing, swimming, and the sunshine.
In anticipation of summer, I’ve set summer deadlines to help keep me focused on writing and not just the pool. 😉

My favorite writing tip is, “Write every day.” This is one we’ve all heard, and it’s one I am still striving for. After many years of struggling, I have come to believe in its importance and its value as I see how it strengthens my writing motivation and skill.
This is such a great reminder as we are nearing vacation season for so many people. Writing every day can be difficult. Many distractions pull our attention away, but the more disciplined we are, the more it strengthens our writing.
Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers:
Don’t give up. It may take years, but don’t give up.
Yes, I couldn’t agree more.

Kathy McKinsey grew up on a pig farm in Missouri, and although she’s lived in cities for nearly 40 years, she still considers herself a farm girl.
She’s been married to Murray for 31 years, and they have five adult children.
She’s had two careers before writing—being a stay-at-home-Mom and working as a rehabilitation teacher for the blind.
Now she lives in Lakewood, Ohio with her husband and two of her children. Besides writing, she enjoys activities with her church, editing for other writers, braille transcribing, crocheting, knitting, and playing with the cat and dogs.
What about you? Do you have any tips or tricks to keep yourself writing every day? We would love to hear about them!
