Those of you that I met from the NextGen Writer's confrence welcome. Those who were just looking for a new blog to read, welcome.

Adding Inspiration

   Yesterday we talked about where to find inspiration, today I want to talk about how to add a little inspiration into your writing world.
  •   Add a painting
            This could be your muse when your in a rough spot. You look into a painting and suddenly an inspiring idea comes to mind.
  • Listen to music
   If you've based your story on a song (or even if you didn't) listen to a song and just think of what the words are trying to say to you. Are they saying listen to your heart, go beat up your ex? Anything and any song will do as long as you don't get to distracted

  • Create your own writing space
This can be very important when writing. Things happen at home and you need peace and quiet. If you're lucky and have a laptop then you can go outside and have peace and quiet outside while the commotion is going on inside. If you have woods around your house go to them and with a notebook and pen or laptop start writing your heart's content until you are satisfied. It doesn't have to be outside. You can have a spare closet, anything.
  • Look to real life problems

Let's say your best friend is going out to a party and you dont' want to go. Add that in maybe your MC has some problems with drinking and she's trying to stop, make 'em resist the temptation of going to that party.
  • Get organized
You won't believe how much you actually get done if you have organization added to your writing. If that's not you though then don't get to upset take baby steps.

   I think I have rambled on long enough. Have fun adding your inspiration.

   Inspiration comes from anywhere. It really does. Look around, do you see something that would inspire a character to travel into space? Here's popular places to look for inspiration:
  • Dreams
  • Song Lyrics
  • Videos (Please don't Copyright)
  • Grandpa's stories about when he was a boy
   It like I said it can come from ANYWHERE Look around, see what you can see, find something that wants to be found. I got my inspiration from a garage sale and now I'm happy about what I'm trying to produce. (I do say trying because I'm still getting through a really slow part that just won't end) LOL

   Thanks for reading, go get inspired

   Editing, the thing that taunts me the most. I have this thing where I like to 'Edit as I Go' I'll write something one day and then the next you see me rewriting it. I can say though that my drafts are still a diamond in the rough. How do you go about editing?
   First off edit the basics: grammar, spelling, capitalization, etc... (although if you have a word processor you probably have spell check.) Keep it simple and go on from there. Next you probably want to go about rearranging things that aren't making much sense. Then read through it. We all have a biased opinion on our writing so send it to an editing group or if you're lucky have an author look it over.
   Things get interesting in editing and even though I'm still in rough draft my preference is 'editting as I go.' It's something that is natural to me.
   Just remember that your manuscript isn't going to be perfect but you want to try to get it close to perfect as possible.

Keeping a Writing Journal

   I don't realy keep a writing journal but I think it's a good idea to know how to keep one.
   It's really easy if you ask me. You can keep anything you want in there, whether it's for your diary to keeping your character's thoughts throughout the story. You always need to know more than you tell or show your reader because then if you would like to add something here and there then you can without having to go through with scratch writing.
   Keeping your character's interviews is important. Say you have a villan on the outside, but you have an interveiw with him (in your head but if you would really like to have an actual conversation go on ahead) and you find out that you want to make him nice and kind on the inside. Then oh no, you're halfway through your story when you forget about making him nice. Now if you forget that important piece of information that may be the twisting tale to you story then your S-O-L. Really though if you would've taken your time to keep a journal for crying out loud maybe this wouldn't of happen.
   To keep one it's simple, simply keep your's or your character's thought in there so that if you feel you have a good enough idea you can follow through with it.

My Writing

   Hello all, I have a little section of my writing that I would like to share with y'all today.

   Noah looked at me funny. Not funny ha, ha, but funny as in a look I've never seen anyone give me. He leaned forward, put his hands behind my head and pulled me in. I didn't resist and I let a kiss take over me. His lips like silk, his hands strong, yet gentle, his breath—even though they didn't know what brushing teeth was— tasted sweet. His tender touch reassured me of anything that could've happened today, didn't. He was still here by my side, he was still hear with me.

   What do you think. I asked my friend and she liked it but as usual I would like to ask other people. Leave your thoughts in the comments and I'll get back to you later.
