Creative Writing, Fiction, Writing, Writing Excercises


   It’s been a bit since my last blog because I’ve been a little busy. I surprised my girlfriend with a weekend getaway to Gatlinburg. We finished off the trip with a stop at one of the casinos on our way home. Then we went to see the band Imagine Dragons. We had a fun filled few days with whiskey, moonshine, gambling, music, and lots of walking. Now it’s time to get back to it.

   I said it in a previous blog, but I think it’s important enough to say again. You have to get out there and experience what the world has to offer. As writers, we can’t always lock ourselves away and not interact with the world. It’s a great way to reinvigorate yourself to continue the oftentimes lonely and solitary journey that is writing.

   Besides recharging the creative batteries, getting out there gives us an abundance of information and images to draw on for whatever writing we choose. It’s a great way to get out of a writing rut and tear down the walls of writers block. I know this weekend has supplied me with all sorts of details, images, and snippets of conversations that have been stashed away for future use. It’s anyone’s guess when and how they’ll resurface.
