Random Facts About My Writing and Reading Habits
>> This week, my writing soundtracks have been “Bastion OST”, “Jamestown OST”, and “Beyond Good and Evil OST” (all video game scores).
>> I tend to get REALLY awesome writing ideas between 9:30 and 11:30 PM. It’s both annoying and fun. I keep lots of notebooks for writing down my random ideas.
>> I often write novel starters– a scene or two from a completely different story than what I’m working on. It helps to keep my creative mind active and I get to indulge myself in a totally new tale.
There ya go, folks! Hope you enjoyed this week’s Wednesday Wanderment. I enjoyed pulling together all these fun links for ya! Go out and enjoy the fall weather with a good book!
