I have been feeling so uninspired lately in many aspects of my life that I thought at least I could put a spark to my writing. I don’t have enough free time to write, rewrite, edit and complete pieces of longer fiction and blog and write poetry all of which I am finding very sustaining in these dark times. So I have decided to write a continuous novel using my blog starting with some of the ideas I was working on in my NANOWRIMO novel. I lost the ending through a combination of fatigue, incompetence and bad luck, but I don’t think I was very satisfied with it anyway.
My New Project:
I will start by publishing the beginning of my novel in small pieces on the weekend and maybe working in new material and see where it takes me. Any creative and useful feedback is welcome especially ideas around what directions to take the story. I love working collaboratively. So if you want to leave comments in any form, please don’t be shy.
My Weekly Blogging Schedule:
Monday: Poetry/ mine or somebody else’s
Tuesday/ Wednesday: A little bit about my life in process.
Thursday/Friday: Commentary or Criticism on the world, science, art, and culcha: You know all that stuff that I have no control over.
Saturday/Sunday: One or Two installments of the continuous story.
I am hoping that a framework will inspire as well as ground me to a task and get me working more. I don’t expect to be perfect, but I will be more consistent, and that will hopefully bring more inspired results.
I really mean it about the comments.
