Holiday Inspiration #2 In Which I Shall Go All Writer on You

Aiya!


Lately, I have been writing a ton of different things. I mean, what better time to write than in the holidays? Anyways, even during the school term it was rather interesting how many ideas I was juggling.

After Camp NaNo in July, I was writing, rewriting and butchering my first draft, trying to get it to the stage that I could allow others to read over it without hating it immensely. (Still isn’t quite there yet :D) It was a slightly less exciting and epic thing to be doing than when I was in my frantic Camp NaNo craze of being in the mindset of write,write, write. This was more trying to make it good.


Aaaaaand, if you know me, I have the attention span of a— *Stares at a bird outside the window* Um, what was I saying?


You get the picture.


So, as you can imagine, this has been a long task, and then all of these little ideas snuck into my brain. *Sighs* And, I was back to my writing. Loooots of it. All of the ideas just seemed so perfect. I was writing up more character arcs and plot lines and worlds than I think I ever have before. Then I looked at my bookmarks bar, and saw the Survivor Trilogy was still sitting there. So, I went back to going through my first book there as well, Sister. And then, I began to get sidetracked-ish.


Now I have managed to work out a system of editing, re-writing, writing, and plotting.


It is possible guys! But, my advice for all of you writers out there who are suffering with this problem is simple.


Those awesome ideas that come into your head? Write them out, as much as they Inspire you and as soon as they come. But don’t go and try to keep writing them as soon as you are stuck. The moment you don’t know what to do, stop, and go back to you WIP. Get the other things down there, and who knows? Maybe one of them will be your next WIP.


Whatever you do, don’t make your writing a chore. Don’t suffer from unexpressed ideas. Get them out and enjoy writing.


Now, it is my turn to Inspire all of you who are staring at this blankly as you currently have no WIP and want one. Or you people who need help to push through your current WIP.
