Another Redirection

I finally made some headway on my second play that I'm writing. It's a scene I'm rather pleased with, and I can't wait to hear it read. I was late for work one day because I just got a rush of inspiration, but I didn't dare stop writing because who knows how long it would be until my next push. I hadn't looked at what I had written in a while, but it's better than I remember and made better by all the stuff I added to it tonight. I'm writing for women a lot better than I used to as well, perhaps because I'm beginning to understand them a little better than I used to.

There's also another new post over at The Liars Club blog that I'd like you to check out because I think it's going to take off again like the hey-day with some new writers out-and-about reporting on wacky shit in Chicago.

Feel free to leave a comment over there, but as for this rag's comment thread, tell me, who, what, where, when, and why you get inspired?

I am an easy read. I get inspired by little, stupid things as I revel in the mundane.

I have passion and verosity, but as every yin has a yang, I get down and unmotivated as much as the next one.

You are smart to be working through this productive period. Best of luck.

I totally agree with you that when you get that rush of inspiration, you need to go with it so you don't lose it.

you'll probably take this in a perverted way, but i get inspired through discipline.
maybe it's just my years of ballet, but i really think you can't truly explore the boundaries of your art unless you know exactly what those boundaries are.

I took JerseySjov's comment perverted enough for ALL of us....

Candy: Yes, I operate in a similar way. Bursts of creativity followed by extended periods of my thumb up my ass.

Radio: Fact. Gotta use it up before it goes away.

Jov: Yes, kind of like the Thomas Edison 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration bit.

Heff: I really don't get how that's perverted. Am I losing my touch?

"Inspired Through Discipline"..ok, maybe I'm just a sick bastard....SPANK DADDY !

I still don't see how that's perverted. Spank daddy, that I can see.
