February IWSG: what's your outlet when the muse keeps evading you?
This is a monthly event started by the awesome Alex J. Cavanaugh and organized by the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Click here to find out more about the group and sign up for the next event.
Hello to all my IWSG friends. Last time I made a list of new year's preposition, and I have to say the one about taking my time writing is going really, really well. Ha, yes, I'm being sarcastic, because I'm not sue it's a good thing. It took me 2 months to write a 14K-word long novella, and it's taking me forever to draft the third book in my Mayake Chronicle series (ssssh, don't tell anyone, though!).
Is that good or bad? I'm not sure. I like to let characters simmer in my head. At the same time, I have that nagging feeling that I'm not being productive. So, what do I do? I take photos. If there's a thing like cross-training, there's gotta be a cross-inspiration too, right?
What about you? Do you have an outlet when the words get stuck in your head and don't want to come out?
