Heat and Writing..

Posted by William

I can typically write during any conditions whether they be cold, storm, hail, heck even during a tornado, but heat is a different story.  We have had a major heat wave going on for the most of July and when you compound that with no air conditioning it makes your imagination take reprieve from the senses.

So the question is how does one cope with 100+ degree heat with no air conditioning and still write.  Well I will be completely honest with you, it is a dreadfully hard hurdle to overcome.  Unless you find a cool basement to hunch down into but even then you have to worry about spiders, ghosts and goblins. 

But I do have a trick that can help write down any idea you have whether be a word or sentence but no more then that.  Post them up on your computer in the order that you write them then throughout the day let your mind work out the scenes in every detail.  Then when night falls go an look at what you have written and the scenes should come alive through your fingertips..

There is one other way, buy yourself a digital recorder and speak out your ideas, converse with yourself even if it feels a little strange and maybe slightly crazy, it helps you carve through tough parts of a story and self doubt...

The Morning Write

Posted by William

I have never been a morning person, actually typically the only time I would see the sunrise is if I pulled an all nighter.  Ever since I was a little kid my vision and dreams have always surrounded the night and the darkness within.

Why is that?

Because the darkness forces your imagination to really work and create something unusual and interesting.  This does not mean I always write dark things nor does it mean I am a man full of negativity.  Actually there is a huge positive essence within my mind and soul the darkness just brings it out.

Anyway...

This morning I got up for work very very early like 4am and I was overwhelmed with inspiration I sat down to write and I wrote and wrote and wrote literally seven good pages.  Even at work the imagination didn't stop there, it was a dull orientation and thus my brain continued to swirl.

I used to put down morning writers not being able to completely understand how they can write with their brains all stuffed full of fuzz.  But now I understand and commend those who write in the morning.. What an excellent way to wake up.  This put me in a great mood for most of the day. I am definitely hoping this continues as long as it is not sooooooo early in the morning because honestly by noon today I was dead..

New Blog...

Posted by William

So this is my brand new blog, my old one has run its course and there are many eyes I wish not to follow.  Over the past year I have done many things but what this blog is going to concentrate most on is writing and reading.  I know many writers have resources on their blogs some of which I follow most diligently, this blog is mostly going to appeal to writers attempting to get their start.  Months ago I started a book and am now about half way through the writing process, this blog is partly going to be about that journey.  I am hoping to gather authors and agents to help explain in further detail some of the avenues I am taking and why they are at an advantage or disadvantage.

But mostly this blog is for you, the reader or writer who is attempting to get their first article or book published, it is a place for creative people of all kinds to share their ideas with one another and inspire your fellow creative scribes. Honestly my plan here is to take things as they go, so please join me and enjoy the inspiration of you and your brothers and sisters..
