Kick Ass Songs

Writing fight scene, listening to Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People".

"There's no time to discriminate,
hate every motherf*^!er that's in your way."

On Writing

Writing Tip:

If you're boring yourself, it's time to rewrite.

My Muse

I'm trying to spark my creativity. I know that many writers talk about finding their muse, but it strikes me that what sparks my creativity is the act of creating.

I know what you're thinking. Huh??

At first it is like pulling teeth, trying to be creative. Every word seems to be forcibly torn out of me. But then, the words begin to come faster and faster, almost like a bubbling cauldron, where the water boils faster the hotter it becomes.

Creating is like that. Sometimes the words are crap. Sometimes they are magic. But they must always be coaxed out. At least that's how it works for me.

Do What You Love

People say that if you do what you love, the money will follow. I sure hope that's true.

This is my first blog in the series, "Adventures of an Unpublished Writer". I'll share my hopes, dreams, successes and disappointments as I begin the path towards having my first romance novel published.

Wish me luck!
