2011: Starting Again

Ah, the first of January. I guess it's sad, but I've never been one for new year's resolutions. Maybe that's because I've always had trouble achieving my goals. There's nothing quite like setting yourself a goal and then not achieving it. I know that too well.

But right now, I want to write. And that feels good after some weeks' hiatus from focused writing. Thankfully, I have already started the next scene, so it will hopefully be easier to continue.

I think the best thing I can do for my writing this year is to write every day.

A large number of words a day would be great, but what's the point if it makes me hesitant to write at all. It defeats the whole purpose.

Another possibility could be to write with the intention of finishing a scene instead of a certain number of words.

But regardless of all the possibilities as far as method, if I can write every day and keep my foward momentum, maybe soon enough I'll be nearing the end of this journey.

Carpe diem.

Just write. Every single word is a victory over the blinking cursor of doom. :)

Lovely to hear from you again, Jean. I hope you've been well.

Sorry it's been so long.

SoMy blogging time was at a bare minimum there for a while. Hopefully I'll be able to visit more often now. :)

Whoa, that said 'sorry' I swear. *wonders what else the internet gremlins have in store for the new year*

Welcome to The Dark Corner of the Mind. My name is Ryan Sullivan and my aim with this blog is to help others with their own writing, as well as to make note of some of my own writing endeavours.

Here at The Dark Corner, Real Life is both our best friend and our worst enemy. Look to him for inspiration, but don't let him get in the way too much.

If he does, bribe him with cookies.
