it's been a while

Hi all! Sorry been out of circulation lately. Was busy with my other blogs and writing in my journal. Anyway, how's my writing? Suffice to say that I haven't finished my story for the Nanowrimo entry. Ahh!!! What am I going to do now?

But I do love typing on my laptop. Hopefully, I love it so much to start free"writing" and actually finish a story.

I wonder what really is hindering me from writing a story. Sometimes I think it's because my imagination is slowly being eaten up by television or movies. There's something to be said of "a story repeated again." But I guess it all depends on the treatment and the way it is presented to its audience.

Take for example themes in movies. Although they are all about the same things - love, revenge, conflict, horror, etc. - we never run out of directors making films, writers penning screenplays or producers exploring other mediums in ways to make the old theme seem new. I suppose all I need to do is find the drive to learn more on how to write a good, satisfying story.

Can't wait for my inspiration to come! :)

Have you watched "Finding Forrester"? It's a great film about writers. One great lesson I learned from that film is "the key to writing is to write." Just sit in front of your typewriter, laptop or pc and just type away. Don't think too much. Just write. Thinking comes after. You write your first draft with your heart. You could always come back and edit it later, that's when the mind comes in.

Good luck and it's nice to hear updates from you.
