Only seeds

For the umpteenth time, I want to write more.

But just wanting it isn’t enough. And sure, I have inspiration, Vague feelings for plots, tiny ideas a story might form around. But they’re all just that, beginnings. Moving them past that stage is giving me more trouble than it should. But then, I’m not really sitting down for doing so. Neither to brainstorm further, or to just put the words onto the screen. Idle thought is useful, but it can only get me so far.

“Write what you know” they say. Well, I’m experiencing a whole lot out here, so maybe I should pull more inspiration, more content from that. Immortalize in fictions the emotions that overcome me on different parts of my adventure. It seems healthiest to do so without bending it all too much out of shape, but I’m having a tough time imagining writing something engaging without applying hyperbole or patching up with tiny lies.

Who knows though, maybe I should just try.

    Pulling inspiration is the first part, and you’re doing that like crazy. The next part is just sitting down and committing to do it. Flaking out on writing is a very real problem. We struggle with it, too. You have to sit down and commit yourself 100% to writing. The second you start thinking about something else, checking another webpage, checking your phone, is when you’ve mentally checked out of writing and you’re pretty much destined to fizzle out.

    But yes, you should just try! Because we enjoy your fiction, too, dammit.

    I look forward to it. Your fiction is great.

    Just add dinosaurs. Real life + dinosaurs always works.

    (Oh. Don’t take my advice ever.)
