Traveling Makes Me A More Productive Couch Potato

Traveling Makes Me A More Productive Couch Potato

Although I should be ashamed to admit that my Colorado trip left me completely drained of all productivity and drive to write, I can’t believe how breathtakingly beautiful my experience there was. I am still in awe of Colorado’s majestic mountains, babbling brooks and crystal clear water, and fluffy cotton-white clouds. Here is a small sampling of my trip to The Centennial State.

Productivity Points: Freelancers NEED Music

Productivity Points: Freelancers NEED Music

Freelance writing is an enjoyable career path, deserving of a daily soundtrack. Not all writing projects are created equal, making them susceptible to intellectual and creative stalemates (or lulls between the initial start of the project to the completion stage).

Maintain high levels of motivation through the power of the “Universal Language” that is music!

The theme for today is Electrowave 80s.

Kara Walker: Sculpture Strikes a Chord that Resonates with 1,000s

I wish I were in Brooklyn, NY to visit Kara Walker’s exhibit: A Subtlety, or The Marvelous Sugar Baby. Opening a dialogue about slavery, race, gender and various cultural bias and stigma, Walker’s sculpture has dug its claws deep into the psyche of Brooklyn and the world.

Jake is Ryan | Gerilyn Hayes Austin Copywriter | www.gerilynhayes.com

My friend Jake is a well-known and respected man in Austin, TX. Ours has been a long-standing friendship, tested by college nights littered with up-til-dawn parties and bleary-eyed Sunday mornings.

No matter how fond you are of a person, when they appear in your dreams you have to evaluate what their illusory presence meant. I’ve always admired my friend Jake because he’s smart and cool and…

The 5-Point Death Kill of a Freelancer’s No. 1 Enemy

The 5-Point Death Kill of a Freelancer’s No. 1 Enemy

Frustration clouds your thoughts.

It’s the specter only you can see, hear and feel.

It gently runs its fingers through your hair and lulls you away from every great idea you’ve had.

It’s always there. Taunting you. Sitting next to you on the sofa, filling your head with thoughts of “I’ll get it done tomorrow” instead of today.

This friendly, unproductive ghost is your No. 1 Enemy, and its name is…

May 3, 2014 started rudely.

My bladder woke me, demanding a release of filtered toxins. A throbbing headache accompanied the urgent wake up call. It only took four ibuprofen to relieve the grinding gears. The muscles in my thighs and calves ached bitterly from overuse during the past week’s morning walk-n-jogs.

The best online resources I found were on Writers Digest and the best music to listen while writing a manuscript is anything by Junip or Brian Eno.
