Putting On My Writer Hat

Got My WRITER Hat On!

Got My WRITER Hat On!

I was having a discussion the other day with a writer friend and she mentioned writing triggers.  The little, quirky things that we writers do to get prepared to write.  For some it’s putting on the right (write) music, having their favorite beverage on hand, or sharpening all your pencils so you’re ready to go.

I told her that I literally put on my WRITER hat and go to work.  Yes, I have a WRITER hat. That’s me wearing the darn thing in the photo (heck yeah I filtered that thing!) .  It’s like putting on my uniform.  It’s a signal to those in my family that I am currently at work.  It might look like I’m staring aimlessly out into nothing but I am actually working (and you can’t prove otherwise).

Whenever I wear it out of the house at least one person will ask me about my writing which acts like a double bonus for me.  They usually want to know where I got it.  Well I got it from Writers Store Along with way too many other things to mention (oh if you insist chat pack, software, writing books, moleskins, etc.).

Operation Gratitude

Operaiton Gratitude's logo

I want to put out a call to all my writer friends and ask them to donate paperback copies of their books to Operation Gratitude.

Here’s a description of Operation Gratitude from the organization:

Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages year-round to service members deployed overseas, to their children left behind, and to Wounded Warriors in Military hospitals and transition units. To date, we have shipped over 700,000 care packages to individually-named troops in hostile regions such as Iraq, Afghanistan and onto ships all over the world.

If you are an author please download the donation form by clicking HERE and send as many copies of your books as you can. Please pass this along to your writing groups, re-post on your sites, tweet it, Facebook it, and help me get the word out!

Thank you my dear author friends! You are all the best – BIG HUGS all around!

Best wishes ~ Stacy
