Is there really any other choice?

  1. Great advice! All six P’s and your explanations spoke to me, and I nodded along with your video in agreement. Thanks for creating this video, as I’m sure it’ll help us writers. Either as introductions to the advice, or as good reminders. These days, it’s procrastination that’s been a burden — and I’m working on it. All the best with your writing 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Dave, for watching and commenting. Writing can be a struggle at times and also a blissful challenge. I think subtle reminders keep the writing caps in place and the thoughts and words in order. I wish you the best too. Keep creating and inspiring! 🙂

  2. Passion, patience and pleasure – nicely summed up, Terveen! Same goes for the negative three Ps, procrastination, perfection and plagiarism. Loved the video.

    • Thank you so much, Britta. Have to keep telling and motivating ourselves. And the biggest P – PUSH forward no matter what. I really appreciate the watch and comment. 🙂

  3. Awesome video! I could get used to these. I forgot there were all these other P’s. I’m always so focused on pleasure and procrastination. You hit all the 3 B’s: brilliant, beneficial, and b̶o̶o̶t̶y̶l̶i̶c̶i̶o̶u̶s̶ bodacious!

    • Lol. Now those are some great B’s, Tony. Yeah, it’s a tussle between pleasure and procrastination. Have to find the right balance and banish the negative energies. Why is writing such a moody craft? Don’t know. Probably has to do with the mysteries of the brain. Thanks so much for watching and the wonderful comment. Keep writing! 🙂

      • Yeah good point. It is easy to procrastinate if pleasure doesn’t seem imminent. But now we have a video to remind us of our follies. A video I can only assume you’re not wearing Crocs in.

  4. you’ve thought this through well, Terveen: a very useful list — I think ‘pleasure’ is the one that propels us ; if we enjoy what we’re doing, we’re going to do it well, and by gosh! we’re going to finish it

    • Thanks a lot, John! Yes, nothing can beat pleasure. There’s not a word written that doesn’t come from a pleasurable and satisfying train of thought and blossoming imagination. Writing cannot thrive under compulsion. 🙂

      • I’ve got a poem I’m posting in the next few days called ‘Trains of Thought’ ; catch it at a station near you 🙂

    • Haha! I can picture that. Thanks for watching. Procrastination is definitely the Thanos of writing. Keep going. You’ve got the superpower of writing. 🙂

  5. That’s a fantastic video, Terveen. I completely agree with all of your wise advice. Of note, it is always a joy to hear/read your work/thoughts about a topic or topics in your style, with that clear edge, and funny backdrop you have. It’s very much you and is wonderful. ☺️

    • Thank you so much, Jeff. Haha! I’m glad that I was able to maintain my signature style and convey some writing tidbits. I appreciate your kind words and warm support. Keep writing those inspiring and beautiful poetic lines. 🙂

  6. I think I have all the “P”s and I just can’t get out it. I’m always dissatisfied with my writing, constantly procrastinate, endless revision, and all the insecurities and anxieties. The only thing I don’t suffer from is plagiarism. One can always quote and link other writers. I belong to those who know their imperfections but don’t have the courage to make changes and time just passes… leaving me with a big sigh… Still we continue to live and hope for something better.

    • Don’t worry, Haoyan. We’re pretty much in the same boat. It’s a matter of discipline and passion. I know you have both in you. Sometimes we all falter. I mess up a lot. It can really be a vicious cycle. Just keep your creativity flowing and get those words down on paper. Persistence is the key. 🙂

  7. It does not surprise me, that you would tackle such a topic! you are have a writer’s heart and a love for creativity! Thanks for those golden nuggets. much appreciation for the passion that leads you and the pleasure you find in encouraging us procrastinating writers!

    • Thanks so much, Tony. Writing can be a fierce craft and profession where discipline and dedication along with some sheer good luck can make all the difference. Procrastination is the biggest deterrent but we writers have to push through that. Wish you all the best and a great new year ahead. Keep writing!

  8. Great video, I too enjoyed seeing you and hearing your voice. These were all excellent points. I think I suffer from perfectionism. Not that I am perfect at anything but I am my own worse critic. Thank you for sharing this with us, your readers, very helpful. Big hugs, Joni

    • Thanks so much for watching, Joni. It was something I put together for Kool Stories. I’m pretty sure everyone’s well aware of these points but sometimes subtle reminders aren’t a bad idea. I’m more of a ‘behind the scenes’ person but this video is the first exception. haha! And don’t be too hard on yourself. I know what it feels like. 🙂

      • Thank you Terveen, you were a natural in your video. I actually really did appreciate the video and reminders helped me do a self check. Thanks Terveen I really appreciate that. Hugs 🤗 Joni
