I have been a little out of the writing loop for a few weeks. As my last post stated, I know it has something to do with me. I have become lazy and lost my drive. Mainly because I keep telling myself that I can never compare to the authors that I read on a daily basis. I was reading through some blogs last night and one blogger was asking some questions about writing. She had said something about what she does to break her writers block. I would link you to the blog, but I can’t seem to find it anymore!!
One of her things is she will find a photo that inspires her. She mentioned DeviantArt, a site that I used to frequent and share my own poems there. I actually started sharing my first book there and when I decided I wanted to publish it I took it off the site.
I decided that since I do know the site and I love some of the art work there I was going to use it to wake up my imagination. I want to push my mind to new limits and become the best writer I can be. I will start writing one short story a week, inspired by a photo or art work found on DeviantArt. A week gives me plenty of time to come up with a story, write and edit the story. I want it to be a symbol of my other work. I want to prove to myself that I have tons of ideas just waiting to jump out and become part of the world.
This also means that I have to stop spending so much time watching TV, though I watch more Anime really. That has something to do with my other blog though, so the Anime must stay!
I just want to be a better writer. I want to be part of the New York Times best sellers list. I want to meet Stephen King one day and get his opinion of my work. Though, I do hope he has a nicer opinion of my work than he did for the lady that wrote Twilight.
I want to impress the world. I also want my mom to introduce me to family I haven’t seen in a while and they say something like “Oh, your the author?” Yep…Maybe it is my need to be center of attention, or my need to prove to certain family members that I am smart and worth something, or maybe I just want to share my imagination with others because it has gotten me through so much.
