New Year’s Resolutions. We’ve all made them, and we’ve probably all broken them at one time or another. Now that we’re 6 days into the new year, you might be holding strong to your new promise, and that’s great! But how do you plan to stay on the path for the remainder of 2022? According to one study, most people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions by February 1st, which means a lot of empty gyms and a lot of unread books. We’ve done some of our own research on how you can better stick to your own goals, and one of the best ways to do it is through writing. Whether or not your New Year’s R ..read more

Thanksgiving and the Power of Writing:
Infinity's Blog for Authors and Writers
by Sara Esther Crispe
1y ago
Happy Thanksgiving! Today is a day we love to get together with family and friends, eat way too much delicious food, and focus on all of the gifts in our lives.  But let’s be honest, somehow the day seems to be more about hanging out and stuffing ourselves, than really digging deep and focusing on the meaning and purpose of the day. We can change that. You can change that. Give yourself just a few minutes today and write. Writing gives you a path to process and express all your thoughts and feelings by putting them into words. By having to choose those words, you have to take the time to ..read more

“Writing is where I go to be honest about how I feel.”  These powerful words are said by Alex, a victim of domestic violence, in the new Netflix series, Maid.

They shift from a slouched position to upright, from faces plastered with fear to smiles and laughs. As they put their memories, hopes and dreams into words and those words on ..read more

What is a Writing Trail?
Infinity's Blog for Authors and Writers
by Gabby Meyer

Writing Trails are a new feature on the Opyrus platform, aimed at promoting mental and physical wellbeing through guided writing practice. We like to think of writing as equal parts relaxation and mental exercise. When a writer enters a flow state, the processes of thinking and writing become almost perfectly intertwined. Words begin to flow perfectly from mind to paper, and the process itself can be almost meditative. We all struggle with complicated and confusing thoughts crowding up our minds, and writing allows us to focus on a single stream of consciousness that we can revisit at any time ..read more

Why You'll Never Regret Writing
Infinity's Blog for Authors and Writers
by Brooke Diamond
1y ago
I don’t remember the first time I wrote. I do remember, however, that I would always dream. I spent much of my time within my mind, my imagination creating and cultivating worlds where the impossible was reality. Imagination is a beautiful thing; free and unrestrained, capable of constructing worlds and designing stories. Words, too, are magical and enthralling. I must have known, from the first time that I attempted to form and intertwine words in a way that illustrated beauty, that I could not, and would never want to stop. Words enabled me to manifest my mind into the physical world and sha ..read more
