Is Your Life Feeding Your Art?

We love writing (for the most part). maybe we don't love writing all the time, but when the writing is good, that can make for a happy day.

It's easy to get wrapped up in the writing-as-lifestyle trap. Past the workshops, writer's groups, and other trappings, we can get caught up in the idea that life is little more than the fodder for art. "How can I use this in my novel?" shouldn't be the first thing that pops into your head when something happens.

Get outside. Stay in the moment. Be present.

The right things will show up for your stories all by themselves.

In the name of logistics, I'll be updating up my NaNoWriMo word count and regaling you with my adventures once a week here. Want to follow my progress on my NaNoWriMo page? Join me here.
