Write Me Up

Official writing with some random thoughts

Reboot November 12, 2012

Well, my brother (see the link that says brother-face on the side of my blog) has finished his first draft. I am still stuck in the beginnings of my first, and have contracted a bit of writer’s block. I’m finally getting used to my work schedule, so I have no excuse to not be writing every single day. But I keep running into walls with one of my storylines. It’s infuriating. So I decided to do a little reboot, and I’m taking a new approach to my draft. Instead of writing linearly, I’m just writing scenes. Whatever scene pops into my head, with whatever character, I’m writing it. It doesn’t have to make sense yet, and I have no idea if it will turn out, but something wasn’t working with my old method, so I have to try a new one.

On a positive note (and in the spirit of Thanksgiving), I am very thankful for my brother who keeps telling me not to “poop out”, my boyfriend who scolds me mildly when I get distracted and write him poetry instead of working on my story, and my roommate who always asks me how my writing is coming along. I definitely need the constant pestering so that I will keep writing.

That is all.

    Writer’s block can do that. I was going to suggest what you’re already planning on doing. Writing scenes can be effective. Listen to music. Go for a walk. Lay down. Just think and envision the scenes with the emotions you want to portray and go. Some of the best scenes you’ll ever want to devise can come up this way and then inspire you to get the rest of the story done, making those scenes finally connect into a final masterpiece.

    Pester Pester Pester Pester Pester.

    But really, you’re pretty good at this writing thing, so keep finding what works, it can only lead to more writing 🙂
