In honor of #iwca2017, our #MondayMotivation comes from Neisha-Anne Green's keynote address: “And though this space wasn’t built for me, I exist in it. I excel in it. Hell, I give keynotes in it.” #bsuwrites #writingcenter

In honor of National Novel Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), #WritersofBallState’s theme is “Demystifying the Publishing Process.” We interviewed Dr. Angela Cox, a new instructor in Ball State’s Writing Program who’s working alongside other faculty members who want to help bridge the gap between the Ball State and Muncie communities through write-in events. Here’s her advice for those who want to get their book off the ground during NaNoWriMo: "Don't expect to finish your story. Most people do not finish it in November. . . . Whatever you write in NaNoWriMo, you have to accept that this is a foundation, it’s like going to the Lego Store and buying all the Legos you need for your project. Don't expect them to come already assembled. In my own process, it takes about four drafts. Four complete drafts — that's not even false starts — before I like what I'm writing. . . . There are plenty of people who have taken their NaNoWriMo novels and gone on to publish them, and I hope to be among them when I get all this scholarly work done, but they've done it with a concerted amount of effort. "One thing that does help is to keep contact with your community. The best motivation I have for getting revisions done and so on is having a group of people that I trust, that I can say, 'Hey, I need help with this scene, can you look over it for me?' And most of the time, I've gotten that community through NaNoWriMo, where we're sitting there for months writing side-by-side in our write-ins and so on. Why not keep doing that?” #bsuwrites

Congrats to tutor Rachel L.! She took this photo of our writing center, and it won @bsuenglish's "Tweet of the Week" (a friendly Twitter competition to promote community among undergraduate, graduate students, and faculty). Thanks for spreading the good word about our center, Rachel!

"Brag on a Tutor." Our lovely Tutor of the Month Committee members, Kelsie and Hannah, recently came up with a clever way to foster community and morale among the center's staff.
Tutors will submit praise all semester. We'll share all of the kind words about each other at the end-of-the-semester party in December.

Here's how it works: 1.) Take a notecard from the bottom zipper. 2.) Write a positive note about a tutor who has been crushing it in the center. 3.) Locate the tutor's name and pocket. 4.) Place your folded note behind their name. #InstaChirp #bsuwrites #bsu

October’s #WritersofBallState’s “What is a Writer?” theme ends with our interview with Courtney, a senior TCOM video production major with a minor in creative writing. We asked her what she thinks unites all writers. “Writers definitely do come in all shapes and sizes, just like people...I think something that might unite writers is just maybe a certain eye for things. Writers often put themselves into their own works and when people feel strongly about something that happened to themselves or others, I think that is something that might spark a writer. Maybe, even, you know, an early age, as early as five years old.” #bsuwrites #bsu #amwriting #writing

#MondayMotivation. Ever wondered who writes your Thanksgiving meal recipes? Like all good writers, cookbook editors need to be clear and concise when giving directions. Extra words=more confusion! #bsuwrites #bsu #writingcenter #Thanksgiving

The end of November is nigh, and that means...a new Tutor of the Month will soon be named! All our tutors excel at their jobs. But for September and October, Yusi and Noah were recognized for their genuine enthusiasm for our work and their innovative tutoring techniques during online and face-to-face sessions. The prize is an adorable animal mug!

Stay tuned for the debut of our November winner!

It's week 3 of #WritersofBallState's "Demystifying the Writing Process" campaign! We interviewed undergraduates Paige Price and Taylor Townsend, who both work on the Broken Plate literary magazine here at #BSU. We asked them what advice they had for writers who want to polish and send in a manuscript for publication: “Be wholly unapologetic of who you are.” “Yes, absolutely. Because trying to find what an editor of a specific magazine wants — you can’t do that. And it’ll be really obvious, because I know — at least on The Broken Plate, we feel that when a writer or an artist’s voice comes through really strong and there’s a sense of individuality about it, those are the pieces that speak the most.” #bsuwrites #bsu #publishing #writingtips #bsuenglish @the_brokenplate

According to this week's #WritingTipTuesday submitter Keith, outlines don't always have to come at the beginning stages of writing a paper; they can come after the first, second, or third draft to keep you on track! #bsuwrites #bsu #amwriting #writingcenter #outlining #writingtip

#WritingTipTuesday. One helpful way to brainstorm a paper topic ? Sketch a "mind map" to connect all of the ideas floating around in your head.

Even beekeepers (or apiculturists) write! This week's #MondayMotivation comes from Vermont beekeepers, Bill Mares & Ross Conrad. Their book, "The Story of One State’s Beekeeping History" argues for the importance of creating a comprehensive history of beekeeping in each U.S state. Here's what keeps them motivated during the writing process. #bsuwrites #bsu #writingcenter

For #NaNoWriMo, #WritersofBallState will feature interviews with writers about the joys (and pains) of publishing. #bsuwrites #bsu

#WritingTipTuesday. Can't decide between two awesome paper ideas? Flipping a coin can help you choose. Assign heads to one topic and tails to another. If you're disappointed with the result, that might mean the other idea is The One! #bsuwrites #bsu #writingtips #writingcenter

Today's #MondayMotivation comes from Gabby Rivera. She's the writer behind America, the Marvel Comics series starring queer, Latinx superhero America Chavez. #bsuwrites #bsu #writing #comics
