This past weekend I spent three days at Life the Universe and Everything (LTUE), a local writing convention here in Utah.
One of the more seasoned authors (and I feel bad that I can't remember which person on the panel said this) gave some really great advise.
He basically said, before you write everyday, meditate for a few minutes on how much you like writing and on how awesome this part of your story should be.
He mentioned specifically that it should be FUN!
Fun, fun, fun.
I just spent about an hour on a rather dark, angsty story that I've been trying to write. I think Single's Awareness Day coupled with me trying very hard to be good and lose some weight, has made me a bit cranky.
However, the cranky churned out some great writing, which in turn was (I have to admit) quite fun. In a sinister sort of way.
Someone eat some chocolate for me.
