Advice to Writers: Mona Simpson

I am back! And I really should be updating this blog regularly but I am a student and school is very important. So I'm back with another quote.




Unplug the Phone and Close the Door

I unplug the phone and close the door and just stick with it. I don’t ever go out for lunch and I don’t take vacations. I like to be awake when no one else is: either just before dawn in the morning or late, late at night. Silence helps.
-MONA SIMPSON


YES! This is what a writer needs to follow when it comes to locking yourself in the writing cave. My house is always busy, and people are always disturbing me when I'm writing. Also when I wrote for unnameable online communities. I have to lock myself in my room, with soothing sounds of nature in the background so that way I could get some decent peace of mind to write my stories. Sometimes, I'll go to sleep at 7pm just so I can wake up at 4am when the rest of the house is asleep.
