Waiting on Wednesday

Filed under: Chasing Adaptation, Pondering, Writing, Writing Style, YA Books, Young Adult (YA)

I’m waiting to open the Word document for CHASING ADAPTATION but I can never do that until I have sprouts in my thought garden. Right now I have seeds–but I need sprouts to write. What do I feed my seeds so that they grow? I zillion creative things, but one very important one is a playlist. Think I’ve picked the first song for book three…

What part of your inspirational process are you waiting on?

  1. I take a lot of showers. Bad for the environment. Good for my ideas 🙂

  2. Not sure, but I’ll know it when I see it. It could be anything–a photo, a song, a stray thought…

    In the meantime, I’ve been playing around with my drawer novel. It’s like an old friend who just wants a little attention every now and then.

    • That happens to me too! I try to pay attention to coincidence…because it never is LOL!

  3. Long drives and boring work meetings– basically any place where I can’t just pick up a pen and write. The more painfully boring, the better. 🙂

    But, for me, a lot of it has to do with place. A picture or scent or sound that reminds me of a place that imprinted on me is usually enough to get me started.

    • Long drives do it for me too. I never seem to have boring work meetings with three boys as my “employers” LOL!
