Writing Live Novels/Short stories
I want to try my hand at writing novels. I have a couple in the works but can't find the motivation to complete them. Some have been on hold for a few years. I don't have writers block. If I were motivated to return to them I could, but I just don't have it. So what I am thinking of doing is creating a story right here on my blog. Just write it as I go and see if this will put a spark back in me for writing. I have been writing poetry since I was maybe 14, and I naturally gravitated towards novels and stories as I got older. My knack for poetry isn't what it used to be. The things that were inside me that compelled me to write it aren't there anymore. I miss it but can't recreate my poetry. Stories began to develop in my mind. I dream them, I see them when I look at people or read events and articles. I find inspiration in the strangest places but usually my dreams are rife with the images that can make stories all their own. I think I'll try to start this weekend, and update and add on to the story at lease once a week. We'll see how that goes.
