 Writing tips & prompts (via inkwell_bkstr), could be useful if you're blocked. 

And if you are in procrastination nation, here's the NaNo 'Starting Line' vid, which I thought had some helpful tips. Includes bonus horned-helmet flaunting (SFW).


Writing when you're grumpy

hey,
I didn't expect to write much tonight but I've had a bit of an emotional upset this evening (nothing major, irrational really but I'm upset nonetheless!) and although I'm going to bed now, I wonder if anyone has any tips for writing when you feel annoyed, or grumpy or just generally *meh*. I guess it's a bit early to be asking for tips for writing when you don't feel like it but it's never too soon to start!

thanks

Proposal: a ban on trash-talking your work

 Here's an idea nicked off a poetry workshop I went to once: how about a moratorium on presenting one's work with any sort of apology/self-deprecating remarks/insults? I mean, I am the sovereign queen of this, but I think it'd be cooler if we shared our writing without doing the usual "I know this is rubbish and will burn your eyes out with it's dreadfulness..." dance before we do. What do you lovelies think?

A day in, at the very least this is going to be good for getting the housework done. Despite the 'flu making everything sore, I've changed the sheets, done the vacuuming, and even emptied the vacuum bag container thingy. Next: a giant pile of laundry.
