Writer's Block
It's happening again. I can't write Thwarted Fate Chapter 12. I somehow managed to get out the first draft and now, I'm stuck in some sort of limbo. To make matters worse, I can't write Kaleidoscope Chapter 30, either! I got out a first draft of that as well which on re-read looks like absolute rubbish! ::fumes:: Both stories are in that terrible position of being in interlude phases right now. The sandwich bit between two important plotlandmarks. The very narrow valley between two cliffs. The plotmarks, cliffs were/would be a breeze to write. Writing the interlude/valley is the killer.

::fumes::

I feel your pain. Writer's block consumed Broken Pedestal and These Masks We Wear.

May you climb out of, around, or build a bridge across said box soon. &heart;

A heartfelt AMEN!

Cool icon. Who's the pretty lady with glasses?

That'd be Addison from Grey's Anatomy. I'm finally semi-joining the fandom and at least snatching some pretty icons.

I needed some glasses icons. ;)

I really love that glare-over-the-rims thing. :p
queen_meep From: queen_meep Date: March 1st, 2007 07:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Me too! ♥ I saw it and at once I had to grab. It's a perfect icon for expressing an attitude... of course I HAD to show it to you since you liked the other one. Not that I was glaring at you. LOL

You can glare all you want with those glasses! :p

Which other icon did I like? curious
queen_meep From: queen_meep Date: March 1st, 2007 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)
This is the other one.

:blushes: I guess I need better glasses. :p

Why do you think I like them so much? I am totally dependent upon my glasses. ;)

It's okay, they're very similar. :)

ahh...yes... i know how that feels. I'm not sure if it's better to slog it out & keep writing or give it a break & wait for the 'spark' to come back. If you wait you might never get it done or it might take forever. but when you write &
your heart isn't in it it never seems as good.

That's the twister, isn't it? ::sigh::. I've got different and differing counsels on WB. Some say keep striking the stone until the spark lights up. Some say take a break, do other things and let the spark come on its own. I think it all depends...

A troll in my LJ? How cute!

Honey, you do realize that I have IP tracking? *rolls eyes*

It'll come.

Meanwhile, I'm so impressed with what you are doing to fill your mind with inspiration. It my be that you are driven by your muse to expand your horizons because there's something it needs out there to finish what you have on the desk, so to speak. Savvy?
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: March 2nd, 2007 06:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, I am definitely searching for inspiration everywhere - books, plays, mythology... Perhaps when I find that missing element, the Writer's Block will go away. :)

*hugs* Huh, I second all of that. Anabasis and Full of Grace are in the same place... Part of me is tempted to blame the time of year. Everything is dead right now, and so is my imagination. Blech.

Here's hoping you will be suddenly and brilliantly inspired. ;)

I actually started thinking of something last night - but I was too tired/lazy to write. I may work on it while I'm at the airport this evening.
fialleril From: fialleril Date: March 2nd, 2007 07:29 am (UTC) (Link)
The airport, hm? Did I miss something?

[Here's hoping that your airport security is not nearly as ridiculous as ours...]

Good luck with writing this evening! :)
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: March 2nd, 2007 07:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Not really. I've been travelling most weekends. It's no longer note-worthy.

Airport security here is very benign. :)
fialleril From: fialleril Date: March 2nd, 2007 02:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah. Lucky you. :D Well, as long as it's somewhere you want to go, that is...

Airport security here is very benign.

Huh. I'm a bit jealous. ;)

Oh...

*hugs*

DWB and I are friends by now.... ;) BTW that reminds me I haven't been on TFN in ages... *blushes*

LOL! Cute. :p

While you're at TFN, give Kaleidoscope a boost for me, will you? ;)
