The Writers' Block

Sometimes you have to get up and force yourself to get back into that writing grind. A little music, maybe some M83 or anything really inspiring or story-like can get the juices flowing. In a single second you would be surprised at what magical words flow from your mind, touch tongue, and withdraws from your lips, making a permanent imprint on paper. Crazy I know. Writing is crazy. But never give it up, it breaks my heart when I hear people say they used to write so many stories and then deleted them! What that could’ve been another movie on TV or another best-selling book. Writing’s great so keep doing it. Yes, I know I suck at keeping up with my blog I can’t even tell you how many Tumblr accounts deleted. But, hey, I’m trying!

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
— Ernest Hemingway

Revisions, revisions, revisions the endless fight for perfection. But, will it ever be perfect even when it’s “perfect”? 

An inTENSE Weakness

Tenses. The one thing that really kills me when I’m writing. I hate it!! Sometimes I don’t even notice that I’m going from present to past or past to present. Shame, Shame, Shame

-_- It is honestly a struggle. Sometimes I get so in the moment and I just lose the flow. But, hey it happens to all of us right? Let’s learn together: take a step back, reread (over and over again), change, and lessen the passion when “getting into character”. After, when you think every little detail is perfect…reread again. Then you can intensify that passion, who knows maybe it will drive you to some more interesting things you can add.

But, remember you’ll have to take those new ideas into consideration and reread and revise and revise.

Loaded

9 book ideas and I’ll probably get another burst some time today…story of my life!
