In truth, I have more time for writing right now than I have had in a long time. This scares me. It scares me because the more time I have for something, the more I fear wasting it. And the more I fear something, anything, the less productive I am. So instead of spinning off into the black hole of my anxiety, I put on my writer’s tool belt and got to work. I really did get to work. But now I’m taking a break and sharing with you two things that got me motivated earlier in the day:
1) Comic relief.
2) Tools. More specifically, templates for your writing life compliments of Belinda Crawford, “world-weaver, tale spinner, geek.” Today I’m using “Blake Snyder’s Beat Sheet” for a short story that has been giving me some trouble.
