Confession Time: I am an Indecisive Creative

      After my last post, I opened my draft and wrote nothing. Inspiration just wasn't flowing. I was second guessing myself on everything from the plot to the characters. It was like ramming my head into a brick wall.

     I was still having doubts a couple days later. "What if I did it that way instead? What if I have too many characters? What if I change what I've already written?" On and on and on. Finally, I realized that I just have to MAKE A DECISION and run with it. And thus I discovered that I am a naturally indecisive person. I think it is good to know that about myself. Now I can control it better.

     In other news, I think I found some good from my long illness. All that Doctor Who watching inspired a speculative article, which I will be posting on storyshoutout.com when it is finished. It's pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. Cinderella would slap me if she heard me telling you my secret wish, but I kinda hope the article gains some attention. Maybe even inspires a future episode, if the idea hasn't already been uncovered. I dunno. That'd be cool. *insert dreamy stare into space*

     One more creative splurt: You know how people say stuff like, "It captured my imagination?" Well, I was thinking about that, and it doesn't really make sense to me. As a writer, I don't want to capture readers' imaginations. I want to set their imaginations free to wander over unexplored places, unsolved mysteries, and unknown universes. So, I made a picture with that thought. Feel free to steal it for your Pinterest or Tumblr.
