NaBloPoMo Prompt #3

Tell us about your writing space. Where do you write your blog posts?

I’ve been known to write pretty much anywhere. I’ve even been trapped at a train crossing and jotted down a quick line or two but the most likely place is my home office. I adore it. When we redid the house, I picked a bright inspiring red for the paint. I have writing and drawing books all over the shelves. Comics, too. There’s a box for my current knitting/crocheting (a writer’s block tool for me) and of course excellent speakers for music. 🙂

Every once in awhile, I post from work when I have a free moment. Which is unlikely since I work with the public but it’s been known to happen. XD

Blessed Samhain!

And a Happy Halloween to all the non-Pagans out there! 😀 (click here for a lazy Wikipedia link to what Samhain is)

I have no particular plans other than to take the kid out for trick-or-treating and hand out candy. I would usually have a Dumb Feast but I’m still in the “This is the first holiday without Ma.” place so I’m skipping it this year.

I am going to be writing this afternoon while the kiddo is in school. I’m working on a contest entry since I’m still stuck in the vampire novel. I hope futzing around with some short stories will shake something lose! That is one good thing about working on more than one thing at a time. You may be stuck in one project but you have three others to fall back on. XD

Back on track! Review of “Chasing His Own Tale”

Mr. Von Kannon, one of my followers on Twitter, asked me to read one of his stories which is available on Amazon called "Chasing His Own Tale" because I am so super amazing and awesome I happened to be around. 😉 As a writer, I totally get the theme of having to battle with your characters, or listen to them battle each other, to get pen to paper in a productive manner. But many a bitchy journal entry I’ve written over the years can’t compare with the humor with which Mr. Kannon captures his Muse, Hero, and Enchantress. In between chuckles I found myself saying more often that not "Hey! I know how that feels!"

I will be looking out for more of Kannon’s work in the future cause if it’s even half as funny, it’s well worth it. ^_^ It’s really cute and I will be reading it again.

SLUMP!!

I’m having one of those spells where I spend more time staring at the wall than writing. I crank out a couple choice sentences and then nada.

I’m sure my inspiration will strike at a completely inopportune time. Until then, I suppose I’ll keep editing and typing up what I’ve written. Somehow, typing up what I’ve written always shakes something loose.

And don’t ask me how the website is coming along. I’ll get there. :p

Time of death:

There is just a point where you give it up. You’re staring at the page, wondering where those last two hours went and why the paper hates you so very much. This occurred last night. Sometimes you really have to just accept the writer’s block and call it a night before you kill someone in frustration.

I’ll admit it, I had a short temper with a certain little girl who refused to sleep in a very reasonable expression of toddler behavior. Blocked creativity can do that to a lady. I’m doing better today but honestly, there are just times where I have to tell my daily word goal to "suck it," and do whatever I can.

For lunch today: Salad with lemon juice and olive oil. You’re gonna get these updates till the snarkiness is out of my system. This could take awhile. 😉
