Writing...A Fresh Start


Last Friday, I made a bold statement admitting things I'd like to embrace & attempt in the next few months. Read such daring post here. One of the things was finish a novel.  
*Take a deep breath*
There is so much positive inspiration for female writers! It's pretty much around every corner. Blogs, amazing authors, screenplays, comedians, podcasts, poets, newsletters...Creativity & unique voices are everywhere. Somehow I have to latch on and not give up.

I've always told myself I have focus issues. It could stem from childhood A.D.H.D. or rather my denial to acknowledge adult A.D.D. I don't know, but it has resulted in several writing projects scattered on my home & work computer, a few notebooks, scrap papers, and a scrapbook of post-its with ideas. I used to be in a writers group in my local library and it used to push me to be productive. I knew I had to have something to submit and the possibility of a constructive critique was intoxicating. Alas, the group disbanded and I abandoned a lot of my starts.

Lately I've been trying to purge through the crap I've collected through the years and the precious little writing samples have been popping up here & there. It's made me long the possibility of finishing one of them. 

A deserted zombie novel, scraps of a romantic ghost story I started with my ex in mind, a taunting sci-fi novel continuing where Bladerunner left off, a too realistic vampire novel revolving around a misunderstanding too deep not to explore, and other little tidbits I hope to fit in somewhere along the way. I can't sit back and let the ideas go to waste. I can't.

Perhaps mini goals would help or joining a new writing group to push it along. I have to find the motivation right for me. It will be a fresh start and hopefully it will be a good one! =)
