In other news... So, I've had a wicked case of writer's block lately. I've been reading, I've been blogging, but I've written, oh, maybe a paragraph or two in the last week or three. I open up my MS and can only re-read what's already there or stare at a blinking cursor. Not fun.
I tried turning to other artistic media for inspiration, but my Veronica Mars DVD marathon this weekend, despite its witty banter, didn't quite do it for me. I'm sitting here and aside from what I'm typing, my mind is rather blank. Argh! You hate writer's block when it happens, right? And if it never happens to you, well...
So, I'm turning to another artistic medium to see if it will crack this hazy brown brick in my brain. My I-tunes library. I figure all the songs in it are there for a reason. They've inspired me in some way. My approach is initially for fun - but, I encourage you all to play along. (*and if you don't have I-tunes, any music library/collection will do)
Today - I-Tunes shuffle will serve as a writer's block magic 8-ball. Kind of.
OK - so my random MS question of the day? "I will find inspiration regarding the relationship between MC and (bleeped-out specific relative) by listening to...*again, pauses to shuffle*... Peter Murphy's "Cuts You Up". Hmmm....interesting...(a tad disturbing, maybe)...but interesting.
OK, now it's your turn. Any part of your current work giving you some trouble? Ask a question and Shuffle It! And please let me know what song you end up with?
Happy Mood Music Monday!
