Concentrating on the recipe and task at hand, my mind takes a break from trying to force my story. And I listen to music - all different genres of music. Eventually scenes and situations start to pop up and I keep playing them over and over in my mind until I have enough to write it down - even just notes of ideas.(less)

Because you will go back and fix it later - but wait until you have your story down before you go back. Otherwise, you'll never move forward. And if you're worried your story is bad, don't think like that. You never know who your story will inspire - and you cannot please everyone. So don't let that stop you from writing. And to quote Ernest Hemingway: "The first draft of anything is shit."(less)

“The cat wasn't just bored or unimpressed... it was lonely.”
Lorenzo Petruzziello, The Love Fool

“His free hand fell to her upper back and a week's worth of tension melted away.”
Lorenzo Petruzziello, The Love Fool

“They say that men who have seen the world, thereby become quite at ease in manner, quite self-possessed in company.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick: or The White Whale

“A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.”
Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

“There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams -- not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“When she saw him face to face their eyes met and brushed like birds’ wings. After that everything was all right, everything was wonderful, she knew that he was beginning to fall in love with her.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night

“How do you do, Captain,” she said, unfastening her eyes from his with difficulty, as though they had become entangled.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night
