Lately I've been in a bit of a slump writing-wise. The creative juices have not been flowing. I really think it has been due to the music I've been listening to.
I have not been in a soundtrack listening mood, and I have so enjoyed having my ~6,000 song shuffle list of "rock" music, but music with lyrics in not conducive to writing.
At least not for me.
So I was complaining to a friend today about my writer's block, and she suggested writing drabbles.
I tried, and drew a blank. So I forced myself to switch to soundtrack music. I started my Pirates playlist (the three soundtracks in order), and before the first one was finished, I had two drabbles completed.
She also gave me a site with a list of words, so once I run out of small concepts, I'll try those words for themes as well.
