Creative Writing

I want to start by apologizing for the paucity of posts this past week.  I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, and it has been all I can do to go to work, get done what I needed to get done, and then come home.  The energy just hasn’t been there this week to do anything beyond the bare minimum.  But, it’s the weekend now.

This has been the first truly nice weekend we’ve had in a very long time, and the first nice weekend we’ve had since we moved into the house.  So, it is a yard work type of weekend.  Perhaps I can sneak some golf in, but I’m ok if I don’t.  I would rather take it a little easier this weekend so I can finish getting better, than to overdo things and not be feeling great come Monday morning.  I would much rather not deal with feeling cruddy with the long weekend coming up next weekend.

I sat down not having any clue as to what I wanted to write.  Sadly, that’s still holding true now.  I have thought about adding some new sections to this blog.  I want to branch out into some creative writing experiments to see how those turn out.  Those of you that do write creatively, where do your ideas come from?  Life experiences?  Personal interests?  Just sit down and start typing or writing and see where it goes?  I would love to hear from you and how you do it.

Anyway, that’s it for now.  I wanted to get something out before the weekend was over, and I’ve accomplished at least that much.  My goal is to get at least one out during the week this week.  Hope you all have had a great weekend, and until next time, take care!

  1. You sound just like I’ve been feeling the last couple of days. Perhaps there’s a bug going around in our area. As for the creative writing ideas… I get writing prompts from several different sources. Once I start to feel a bit better, I’ll have to send you the links to some of the sources I use. Hope your energy level picks up again soon! Just sit outside and soak in the vitamin D. It will do you some good. 😉


      1. No problem… WordPress offers quite a few classes and writing prompts. Everything is free and the classes are a lot of fun. So be sure to look at everything they offer. I think once you go to this link, you’ll be able to find the other classes and prompts as well. Let me know if you have questions. I’ve taken a lot of the classes already.

  2. So… hate to admit my ignorance… but you taught me a new word “paucity”…. I don’t consider myself a “writer”… so it never seems like I have nothing to write… (is that a double negative?) … maybe what I am saying is I dont think first… just write what I am thinking… than I revisit… with lots of edits… I think it is always easier to write what you are thinking and then return and think about how to best write what you just wrote… (man.. nothing I am writing sounds like it makes sense… told you I wasn’t a writer)
