promoted this community on hers for me (not that I had asked!) so in exchange I have posted today to promote hers. other than that, very dead 'round here.
Just like everyone else here, I am (or want to be) a writer, but I've been having trouble getting myself motivated.
Plenty of ideas, characters, settings are swimming around in my head, however I just can't seem to get them out onto paper.
I'm hoping that participating in this community will help me, as well as give me the opportunity to help others.
As for basic info:
I'm 23, female and live in the USA. I graduated from college with a BA in Arts, degree in English. So you'd think writing wouldn't be a problem for me. Go figure!
Anyway, at this point I'm just trying to write anything
How about you? Current Mood: crazy
Findings, may not apply to all
I try to keep in the habit of writing, but I find I can't force myself to write. One thing I do is take notes whenever I have a moment and wherever I am, writing down any ideas, no matter how mundane, in a pocket notebook. Then, when I have time, I collate them, typing them into this box here. Sometimes, I need freemind
to organize the most scattered, but ambitious, projects.
I use to think, if I had more time, I could write more. Then I went on unemployment and the the ideas dried up. So strangely enough, I am more inspired when I am busy. That makes the pocket notebook crucial. Meeting people, learning new things. They are necessary for interesting writing. Lock the festering mind away and it returns to a state that breeds dis-ease.
One last thing: there is no story like the one scratching itself on the bus next to you.
