WIP Wednesday

The Goddess of Vengeance Wore Pink Galoshes... is resting. Shh.

While I take a break before tackling revisions, I want to write more short stories and poetry. Does anyone else find it hard to resume the short forms after working on a novel for a while? I have tons of novel ideas right now, NO short story concepts.  Ghaa.

But I sent out what I have already polished, formatted and ready to go. Three stories, three poems, and a non-fiction query are out to various 'zines.

Hopefully my writing course beginning next week will help me get some inspiration up in here while I try to forget about The Goddess of Vengeance.  What do you guys find sparks inspiration?

GOOD LUCK with your stories and poetry!! Wow!!! I'm in awe!!

And ALL THE BEST with your writing course - I loved the one I finished early this year that I'm raring to do another but thought to take break and get seriously down n dirty with my slow going wip!

Inspiration: hmmm I think it's watching people!

Take care

Best of luck with revisions! I'm always hit with inspiration when I don't want it! lol I'm trying to finish one wip, then another one hits me XD

I am apparently too much of a wind-bag to write short things. I start a short story...and it proceeds to become a novel despite my best intentions to reign it in. Ah well.

I find my dogs and my neighbor's kids are great inspiration. At least, for comedy. Even my dog's rattlesnake bite incident got turned in to a short story.

Good luck with your short stories and your writing course.

I don't think I've ever tackled anything in the short story genre - everything tends to be novel length. One of these days I should try one :)

The joy that my little daughter finds in everyday things is truly inspirational.
