Writing tools and writing pools
I have been spending a bit of time reading and thinking about writing, as well as actually doing some of the stuff.
I have been listening to an audiobook of Dorothea Brande, and doing my 750 words each day.
I have also been reading Julia Cameron, the creative way, and quite a lot of Boice, especially professors as writers, but also some of his papers.
I have also been doing my fair bit of writing and editing, so much that I had to do some hand saving dictation yesterday evening,
Next week I will be upping the ante slightly, by starting off my writing Tuesday's. I am booking a room each Tuesday, ordering in tea, coffee fruit and lunch, and then inviting all and sundry to join me for writing tasks through the day.
On top of that I am going to take a closer look at Bouce's plan for generative writing, and combine it with Brande's idea of a daily timetabled short writing slot, in addition to my lately rather peripatetic, "morning pages'
So... That is the plan, let's see how it goes.
