  1. This week ive been focusing on a positive attitude. Thinking possitively really does get you more motivated. Ive actually been doing uni work instead of leaving it untill last minute and ive been thinking about what i could write! :)
    ive decided im going to tweak past ideas and make them more into a story, I usually get my ideas from intresting dreams I have and change them to make them flow better. Dreams are such a fantastic thing to get ideas from because your unconscious mind just flows!

    Im going to develo previous ideas Ive had in the past and create something with a little more depth to it!
    Ive had a few ideas of what I can add to them but of course I have to concentrate on this uni work most importantly!
    I never used to write plans for my work either but recently I have been, I guess it helps the flow a little but I do find myself changing the plan more than the actual story, I am hopeless at planning!

    oh well, you can only improve the more you do something.
  2. Basically, im going to babble on for a bit as to why ive decided to join this site despite not actually have written much in a good couple of years.

    I'm hoping i can regain my love for writing as well as giving me something to do on those lazy days I find myself having more and more of. I seem to of gotten myself into a bit of a rut and have become goalless as to what i want to achieve in life.

    My plans over the last year included:

    work hard in uni - fail.
    actually finish something im writing - fail.
    become somewhat less of a pessimist - fail.

    Ive come to the conclusion that I dont actually do much these days, my sense of achievement is limited to completing the current book im reading or listening to my boyfriends achievements which are definitely a lot more than mine.
    Im hoping by getting back into writing i can give myself a bit of a boost and have something to be a bit more proud of. The things I enjoy writing mostly consist of horror and the weird, im not very girly and the vast majority of my writing rarely have a happy ending.

    I would absolutely love feedback to anything I write, how can i improve without constructive criticism right?
