My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Piquing your interest ~ Be Inspired Meme

My thanks to Suzanne Furness of The Word Is...for tagging me
This Be Inspired meme gives the recipient the chance to share some information about their current projects
by answering some questions.

I'm going to just answer just one of the questions
and tweak it a little
 
(for full set of questions see below )

 




Q: Tell us anything that might pique our interest
about your writing process?


A:
I have gone from being a panster, who starts writing a story and then very quickly runs out of steam, to someone who tried to outline and plan. I have heard many authors say:

'Always finish your writing day with something still left to write'.         AND

'To be a good writer you must read, read and read some more'

Recently I have been doing just that, by using my local library more and treating myself to books on a regular basis (usually instead of clothes and shoes etc.!)
I've been writing short stories (and usually I get an idea but the ending is often elusive), this time I wrote the first paragraph only, then made myself leave it, do some chores and think about it.

And boy does this seem to have worked a treat! Those creative juices that I had previously mopped up by writing until my idea was exhausted are instead set to work on making the story I have just started work better.

I would like to pass this meme on to Ellie Garratt and Dominic De Mattos who have both recently returned to the Land of Blog.
