Writing is Fun!

Word Count: 4,404

Ideas that might be brilliant but might also be asinine: 3

Plot Bunnies: 0

Nanoers call ideas that save you when all hope is lost, ‘Plot Bunnies’. I never get them, because hope is never lost. There’s always somewhere to go, something to write about. This is why I find it hard to think of myself as a ‘real’ writer. When I give myself creative license, I don’t have a problem writing. No writer’s block, no angst. That stuff only seems to happen when I have to limit myself somehow to, say, a conventional narrative arc.

Pah, I spit on convention.

    I’d venture that being able to go where your creative license takes you makes you more a writer than being a slave to convention makes others writers.

    and if you’re having fun, that’s GOOD. suffering is not always necessary. that’s just how those writerly alcoholics justify their addictions.

    Would you mind if I put “Pah, I spit on convention” on a t-shirt?

    Cheesefairy, I often wish I could be more of a slave to convention; I might be more marketable.

    Deb, put it on a t-shirt, please! And let me borrow it sometimes.

    Marketable? When did Hemingway worry about Marketable? C’mon: you’re a trendsetter. It just takes one letting you through the printed gates…
