    New topik.

    How do you counter Writer's Block?

    Personally, i like to divide a short story, or a chapter of an on going saga, into sections. If said sections are incredibly comprehensive, i like to divide the comprehensive sections into smaller sub-sections, and finish one of them a day.

    Also music.

    You figure it out. Let me know. I've tried everything.

    I like Derek and Brandon Flechter's music compilations. Also you click on one of his themed lists Youtube will show you similar thngs from other artists. I've been listening to a lot of Wild West themed music lately.

    Alrighty, kewl.

    I normally try to to listen to music that houses the same tone i'm trying to create, and then try to translate it into writing.

    nothing
    in
    particular

    Also, i have the the same first name as that last guy o.0


    Hmm. I tried reading other peoples' stuff for indirect inspiration (being inspired from other peoples' work, but creating something entirely different).

    Also, as of now at least, I don't fully plan everything in a story, but rather create one-two liner summaries for each chapter (or part of a story if it's a short story). It allows me to know what to do next, while at the same time, not wither away my interest in writing it. If everything's too much planned, i find that it saps away creative juices, and inspiration once you finally reach that plot point or whatever that has been carefully planned.
