I just finished my new novel’s 1st draft, 300 pages!! I thought I’d get some rest at last. Revisions aren’t that exciting, are they? Perhaps I’ve lost my mind or was that something just reserved for kids? Here I am up at Four in the Morning, excited about revising! I know how it starts, I know how it ends….. can repainting road signs be that exciting? I think however it’s the inspiration of friends I’ve found at Indie Writers…..
There is an addiction to the creative experience that is inspired by nothing but others. What is it I want to make certain I have done? What is to exciting to wait? I’m inspired by those in my writing group, who I hope like me can’t wait for enough light to again be up and write! This is how my sleep is undone…
- Tease curiosity with Alvin Wander’s amazing technique for creating character
- Create a culture bound to a knife held by a vulture as Walt Kuhlman does
- Add some subtle but poetic phrases as inspired by Judy Moskowitz (or Billy Collins)
- Add some heartfelt prose with the gentleness Evelyn Ross does
- Every day I remember to read someone new as I learned from Gerrie Beck
- Shine the hot spot light of stage like presence on my character’s speech- Isaac Asimov (I know he’s been here while I was asleep)
- Or read something magical as from John C Mannone? (as close as the internet)
- A a page of cruelty and violence in a very special way, inspired by Keith Darrel
- What price can you put on such a thrill? Authors who have have Disneyland In their backyard! Maybe I’ve added too, by just catching fire?
