More Stubborn Than Creative

This would be so much easier if I could just decide what I want to work on.

So far this week I’ve been adding a word here and a word there to my current WIPs, but nothing really significant.

I thought about starting something new, but I can’t settle on which new idea. Book one of a new trilogy? A stand alone book? Maybe a short story or two? Decisions, decisions.

I’ve been hanging around Absolute Write a lot the last few days, more reading than posting of course. Someone offered a poetry challenge that I couldn’t pass up. The challenge was to write a poem that started with the line: The boy stood on the burning deck. The poem could only be four lines. Here’s my contribution:

The boy stood on the burning deck
and gave his girl a little peck
she told him to go to heck
instead he wrote this piece of dreck.

Meh, it’s not great poetry, but at least it’s creative.

Don't look at it as a negative that the production is not there, rather look at it as taking baby steps to complete the marathon.
