Back into the swing?

I’m involved in my story again.  I’ve mentioned before that sometimes I just need to set aside time, and go to some other place to make myself write again.  So last night, I wrote about 2500 words at Barnes and Noble.  It was a sex scene.  A lesbian sex scene.  And while the characters I…

Glint tidings.

Ok, things have finally settled for me.  Phantom returned to town a little over a month ago, and we’re back to some sort of a routine.   I need that routine to do anything creative.  So I’ve had the urge to write.   What’s wanting to be written right now, however, is not my book,…

Borders..

I don’t know why it is that I sometimes just need to get out of the house to jog myself.  I get so bogged down in the work/clean/survive/take care of doggies cycle at work, that writing there is just tough.  When I open my MacBook, I just want to watch something mindless, not put more…

Earrings.

Well, I still haven’t been writing, but I HAVE been creative.  Because of some impending financial disaster and misery, I’ve found myself needing to find a way to make money that’s quick and won’t make me hate my life in addition to the two jobs I already have.  Writing is a future goal, but I…

W00t!

I figured out how to end my scene.  Actually, it will be the same way I end every scene, because it just totally works for the story. So aside from one minor detail that I need to go tweak in a few places, I’VE TOTALLY FINISHED THE FIRST PART!!   I’ve also written 312 words…

Current word count..

Ok, I only wrote 500 words.  Still, I wrote 500 words.  That’s 500 more than I had this am.  I may play with it a bit more tonight, but I got the final scene done for my first part.  I wasn’t quite sure if I just wanted to drop it where I left it, or…

Manic..

I don’t think Phantom has ever really seen me in one of my truly manic phases.  There are these times when everything just seems to FINALLY come together, and I have this insane creative, motivational rush.   I’ve been in a funk for the past few days.  It’s been a combination of missing Phantom, missing…

Another language beef

Especially in sex scenes, I’ve found that using the same terms over and over can be really distracting.. Pussy as sheath1st time: OK, sure.. *keeps reading*2nd time: Yes, very sheath-like. I concur wholeheartedly. *keeps reading*3rd time: Got it. It’s a sheath. Can we move on please? *keeps reading*4th time: Grrrrr.. *counts previous mentions*5th time: Goddammit….

I’m not going to explain..

..why I haven’t written, YET AGAIN.  I’m also not going to explain about how I’m not going to beat myself up about it.   I’m not going to bitch about how I’m setting myself up with impossible standards, and that the authors whose dedication I admire have writing as their ONLY job.  (It’s my third…

Birthday creativity block

My birthdays are never all that great.. Something always comes up or important people forget or people are sick or dying or die around my bday… There’s just always something.. So I’ve learned to dread my natal return year after year.. I had just begun to feel hopeful about this one when I had a…

Strike 1!

It just occurred to me today that I didn’t write a single damn thing yesterday. I did record two podcasts, so at least I did something creative, but still.  That really doesn’t count.  So punishing myself isn’t going to work, and feeling like shit about it won’t do anything either.  The more writing becomes a…

Current word count..

..  is 23488. I’m a bit stuck on how to end my first section (water), or if I’m at a good stopping point to go ahead and do it.  I’ve already started writing my second part (earth).  I’m really excited to be working on a new part of the story.  It makes me wonder if…

I need to print this..

..and read it every single day..   http://davidhuntershaw.blogspot.com/2011/01/shut-up-and-write-official-manual…   I got some writing in today, just a few sentences.  Current word count: 22,553.   We also went walking in the snow tonight.  I got some good shots.  They may end up on TrippingVine, but they may not since they weren’t really a trip OUT, as…

Current word count

21880. I have been writing, but mostly I have written things for THE SHOP. The work we’re putting into that now has a definite potential of being very important in our future, so it counts. And it was also creative. Today I fed my muse by going to an old local cemetery and taking pics….

Current Word Count..

Didn’t get to write much yesterday, since it was a shop/KATG day.  But I did work on the latest scene a bit.  So my current word count is 21824.  Not great, but I AM keeping with my goal of writing something every day, no matter how small.  I’m proud of myself for keeping up with…

Writing totems, rituals, and spaces

I’m thinking about writing some emails to some of the authors that I enjoy and/or admire.    (Sometimes I admire an author that I don’t enjoy, and vice versa.) I’d love to find out if there are any little rituals or totems that they start out their writing sessions with.  To give you an idea of…

Another change..

I’m moving all the content on Fleshvine.com to wordpress.Fleshvine.com.  This seems like a small thing, but it’s not. This year my focus has shifted quite a lot.  I loved having Fleshvine.com, and to be honest, Fleshvine is a HUGE part of who I am.  It was great to have my own domain and my own…

A beginning.

I don’t believe in making New Year’s resolutions.  I always forget about them.  By about January 4th, I find myself getting back to the daily BS of ‘justgettingby’, and New Year’s might as well be a figment of my imagination. In fact, it seems to always be the ‘justgettingby’ that gets me.  I spend a…
