More Demotivational Posters For Writers

There’s a theory in the fiction book market right now that uplifting stories will always outsell misery, no matter what’s in vogue at the time.

In blogging, you could assume that it would be the same. But you’d be wrong. The single most popular post of this year for me which sees new shares on an almost daily basis is the hope-quenching firestormer, Demotivational Posters For Writers.

You guys don’t want optimism. No Sir! You don’t want soft words of encouragement and sweetness. You guys want COLD, HARD BUZZ-KILL.

Isn’t it just the most beautiful and fortunate thing in the world that I’m JUST the person to give it to you?

With that in mind, please enjoy these further words of doom, gloom and general cynicism.

You’re welcome, friends.

    Oh you are cruel. And I’d just described that path over that mountain too. How could you dig it up a poster at a time?

      It’s my Machiavellian core, Geoff. Also, pure luck and chance, but we don’t talk about that.

    I really should knock up a few of these properly but can’t be arsed.
    “Motivational Posters: when looking out of the window for desperate inspiration has lost its appeal”
    “If you can raise your head to look at this poster instead of mindlessly trawling social media for inspiration or ‘research’, count it as a win and have a biscuit to celebrate”

    Who needs lightbulbs? We writers bathe continually in the divine light of inspiration, as you well know. Or is that G&T? I bathe in that quite regularly too, another prerequisite of being a writer. And now that you mention it, my vision board does need updating. And yes, it most definitely should have been you. Chin up. Go and get your gladrags and wellies on and we can go for a romp round the other Tara if you like… enough inspiration there for everyone.

      That is all completely true, Ali, except for the thought that I might need cheering up. We all know that nothing makes me happier than cynicism mixed with a dash of bitters. I am radiating happiness like a gigantic grumpy fan heater. Might still join you on that hill, though. Sounds like fun 😆
