Well... a few more words on the sci-fi last night and a few more this afternoon... I shouldn't have waited till yesterday though because I have lost some of the voice for it... fighting to get it back.

something to the tune of 200 words or so today... but I finally felt a beginning to a little sci-fi piece I've been mulling for a few months now... I think it's got a 5-10K word short story in it, and I think it might have a voice as well now so I'm happy... I'm also hoping to put a bit more time in...

I'm not picky any more... I LOVE my fountain pen but usually only use it as a creative catlyst... writing in a small notebook with it when inspiration strikes... just a few words here and there to set the mind going later.

I found this article on slashdot today. http://features.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/09/20/1812204&mode=thread&tid=185&tid=189 Basically it's discussing the pros and cons of wordprocessors vs typewriters or hand written drafts... interesting stuff. I'm of the mind that a basic text edi...

ok I just picked this up

I just saw this at the library and grabbed it... started reading a bit last night and it looks like it might be pretty good. Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a writing life By Terry Brooks Looks much in the vein of On Writing: A memoir of the Craft by King... part story of a writer part writi...

well... I'll try not to be too harsh (but I DO tend to be overly brutally honest when asked for critique).. especially since I am wholly unqualified to critique poetry, AND poetry is a very personal thing, AND is incredibly subjective... so take my thoughts with a grain of salt, and know I don't mea...

I like the sound of the morning pages... after reading the King book I was motivated and writing my 1000-2000 words a day... but then I got sidetracked on a short story and my novel has been almost entirely dormant for a month or so.
