Due to various circumstances, including the fact that this was week from Hades for almost everyone of us, we -- but mostly I -- failed to line up a guest.
So... I thought I'd make y'all work for it. So to put it.
If you're being good boys and girls and doing your shorts -- I confess I've only done one in about a month, but I have to do one tomorrow anyway, probably at the laundromat (I have mentioned all my appliances have been failing serially, right? If not, well, they have.)or even if you're not, you probably need some ... okay, a kick in the behind.
I've been reading this book called The Writers Idea workshop by Jack Heffron and marking pages I find interesting, such as the following questions from page 13. The purpose of the book is to work with you in deepening your ideas. Right now, it looks like it might helps. So, here are some questions to ponder.
1 -Do you have an idea you've been noodling in your mind for a while? What aspect of the idea keeps it so alive?
2 - Are you holding yourself back from developing an idea into a draft by doubting its worth or your own abilities as a writer?
3 - Are you continuing to work on a project for fear of letting it go? Why are you afraid?
4 - Do you fritter away some of your writing time by thinking about the fate of a current project, such as whether or not it will be published?
5- Do you find yourself talking about ideas before putting anything on paper, only to find you have talked away your interest in, and energy for, the project itself?
