Erica discovered writing for entertainment after a local newspaper journalist visited her sixth grade class during career week. He spoke at length of his joy of writing, of being able to create a story his readers would enjoy, while at the same absorbing the importance of his article.
Up until then, she had viewed writing only as the physical act of putting words on paper through use of a pencil (pen if it was a final draft). But writing was never fun. It was school essays and had the added difficulty of being left-handed.

While I mash zombies, or race through the streets, part of my brain will quietly ponder the current corner I've written myself into. Usually just the break from the focus is all I need for a path to become clear.
Other days I'll blast some music and delve into my Lego collection. Building can also let my mind wander and I'll usually begin with a random dialog and go from there.
If I'm really really stuck, then I'll tag some unfortunately victim and throw the scenario at them and see what they think up. I'll admit, I don't usually get helpful answers, but the process of denying those possibilities makes it easier for me to find the answers I want.
I will admit, a time or two. . . or three, I've written and moved on. I always hate myself for doing that when I cycle back, but eventually the answer works itself out.
It's like when you're trying to overcome an obstacle and when you finally get over (under or around) it and you look back, you see an easier way, but you just missed it the first time around. (less)

Night Owl

Hello! And welcome to the night shift. . . so to speak. I am either a night owl by nature or in the wrong time zone. Either way, I do tend to come alive as the sun goes down. As long as my schedule allows for that sort of thing. And therein lies the problem. Day job is on the east coast schedule. Which works great for after work activities like dinner with friends and classes at the gym. Even when Read more of this blog post »
