You know, like when you put all kinds of ingredients in a saute' pan and hope something good comes out. That's kinda what I'm going to try with my Friday posts. I figured if I came up with a theme, I might be more prone to stick with a regular schedule. Like my writer friend Allison Merritt. She does a blog post every Friday titled The Friday Five. Pop over and take a look. http://havenovelwilledit.blogspot.com/
I'm not going to completely steal her idea. I'll just add one ingredient each week and at the end of the year, maybe it will be something tantalizing and delicious.
My first ingredient: inspiration. There is a book about writing called The Weekend Novelist by Robert J Ray. It is geared to people who feel they are too busy during the week to write the Great American Novel. But, their weekends are fairly free. That's me. Actually I'm not that busy during the week. I just don't want to get up early and write (I'm not a morning person. Ask anybody). I don't want to lug my laptop into work everyday to write during my lunch break and I'm pooped by the time I get home. Brain tired. But, my weekends are pretty dull. I often find myself flipping through channels trying to find something to watch or just driving around hoping to find something to do. More often than not, I end up at my hangout. Not very productive. So I am now a weekend novelist.
I hope you can pop by on Fridays and see what's going in the pan next. It could be anything. From childhood memories, to my writing progress, to something that caught my attention that week. Let the stirring begin.
