It's funny how old habits spring back to life and go hand in hand.

I say I started writing once again in December (still unsure where I want to go with it) and decided it was time once again to come to the website that I called home for so many years. I would have to say it is a very good feeling on both. Writing has always been a very good outlet for the stress everyday life puts on me and I am pleased to say after about eight years of it laying dormant the old flame still ignites brighter than ever. I hope that once again our dear website will be alive once more as well

I agree Talon.

I'm glad to see you back writing, too. :)

At the moment I'm trying to train myself to dedicate sometime each day too it but unfortunately I can't always do that

So I've been lazy here of late lol. I've been having trouble getting motivated to actually sit down and write and to be honest it's driving me nuts to say the least. I have plenty of ideas on old and new story ideas. I just can't seem to put the pen to the paper so to speak. Does anyone have any pointers that may help?

Warning: If no one posts here I will be forced to start another thread. You have been warned :twisted:

Getting away from the daily grind seems to do it for me. Do something else for a while. Something you enjoy...go fishing. But don't take my advice: I talk to myself (aloud) in public places and I don't care that people step away from me. Cheers.

ps Just remember that when you do finally write again to never forget rule number six from Kurt Vonnegut's tips on how to write a great story: "Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them-in order that the reader may see what they are made of."

I'm not familiar with Vonnegut's tips. I like the one you quoted. It shows an explanation about why bad things happen to movie characters, too.

I haven't read all of Vonnegut's stuff, but a lot. I'm more partial to him because I live within an eye's view of the slaughterhouses. As for bad things happening to characters, it makes sense. Cheers!
