I'm not sure what's wrong with me these days. I just don't feel like writing. Shopping? Sure. Going out to eat? I'm there. Browsing other people's blogs? Definitely. Reading? Oh, yeah. But mention writing, and I get this glazed over, pathetic, please-don't-make-me look in my eyes. I think the agony of waiting for word from my agent about Chicken Scratch is giving me writer's block (or maybe it was all that cheese I ate). Whatever it is, I now know what it's like to be a DVD on "pause." Not fun.
This week, I stumbled upon Kay Pluta's blog (she's an editor at Blooming Tree Press) and found some great little writing prompts. They're supposed to be for kids, but hey, I'm willing to try anything at this point.
