Today we begin a new week, a new month, a new quarter and maybe a new project?

This month’s project is the reboot of what thought I was starting last month. Then life intervened. So, I am beginning a brand spanking new project. (I like being the boss of me). This month I am hoping for five to seven short story rough drafts besides my other writing.

This project idea is less than two months old. I have images chosen for inspiration and I know the ending. Otherwise, I am flying VFR.

What rituals do you use when you begin a new project?

  1. I like to go out into the world to get inspiration. I find that every time I go out I see things I don’t understand. I kind of look for them:
    -Where does that stray cat sleep at night?
    -Why is that women letting that man yell at her?
    -What was this abandoned building like in it’s heyday?
    -How did that man end up homeless?
    I take those questions and let my imagination fill them in. It’s a start at least. Idk if that helps its just something I do, maybe I’m weird haha

  2. you are most definitely the boss of you! i did not think of insiration when I read this quote. I thought about research, and how I needed some factual data, statistics etc to add dimension to my story. characters would already have the personality but added information always makes a story pull the reader in.
