My last Scene from a Pic-Snarky Reader Style tanked. Holidays and all that. Plus, I didn’t pick an inspiring picture. Yeah, I know, my fault. So, I’m shaking things up a bit.
Check out this fantastic and delightfully wicked photograph from Deviant Art and write if you’re so inspired. It can be a scene, a plot or even just one line. Let your imagination go! (If you’re new to my Scene from a Pic, you can read past entries to the right in that category.)
I’ll post your writing along with a link to your blog when it’s time for the next one! Not only do you get a creativity spark, but you get extra traffic!
I’ll be surprised if I don’t get some action from this one. Maybe the darkness of the shot suggests an underhanded, murder mystery plot. Or if you like dark sci-fi, hit me with your best shot. I’m sure some minds are going straight to erotic, but do me a favor. I don’t usually post any rules– I’m not one for rules ya know– but, try not to get too graphic on me, kay? I don’t mind sexy… I like sexy… but I plan to keep this site R rated at the most. I’ll delete anything I wouldn’t let my daughter read. <g>
Writing goal check in:
I’m adjusting my daily goal to 2000 words. I can extend my 1st draft deadline by a couple of weeks and still make it. Plus, maybe there will be less panic on the days I can’t make the daily goal. I didn’t plan to write weekends, but since Thursday and Friday were a bust, I worked most of the weekend. I’m up to 2000 words today, but plan to make 3000 before bedtime tonight!
It helps to have my critique group working hard along with me on their books. We’ve been chatting on our loop at night, exchanging word goals, talking plots. The support is priceless. Rachel is reporting her work on her blog right now, too. (This woman sets high goals and consistently sails through them!) We’ve even got Dana going!
Oh and I want to send out a huge, fat, freaking thank you to Laura at Mad Below My Feet for telling me about Pandora’s Internet Radio!!!! I love, love, love it! You did not exaggerate, my friend. I’ve tested it out with around ten bands so far and it hasn’t failed. Right now, I’m trippin’ with Massive Attack Radio. <g>
