Brainstorming Day

Well, it’s the end of the week and year for that matter and I’ve been slacking on my brainstorming sessions. With a full-time job Monday – Friday and extra activities after work, this week has been a bit chaotic. Being the end of the year and holiday time makes it rough too.

The Writer’s Survey

Writer Survey
I discovered this interesting little survey on Hannah’s Blog. I figured I’d give it a try.

1. What’s the last thing you wrote? What’s the first thing you wrote that you still have?
The last thing I wrote was a part of the setting on my new WIP. The first thing I ever wrote and still have is a short story that I hope to one day turn into a novel. (wishful thinking)

2. Poetry? (more…)
