What I've Been Doing...

So I'm trying to get back into my writing groove. The whole tricking myself, or rewarding myself has been working. The other night I got an idea in my head and was watching TV, so I quick grabbed one of my many notebooks and wrote it down.

Now, I call these flash fiction pieces because they're super short and you get the idea of the story being told. It is helping me enhance my story-telling. I'm trying to get more in depth details of the surroundings as well as the people, because apparently that is something I am lacking. Which, is true, and I'm trying to change that.

The last piece I did with the pirate battle has been one of my best, so far. The one I wrote the other night is still in my notebook, but it's kind of sad, so I'll wait to share that one. So far, all of this has sparked my writing once more and I am trying to take the time to work on things.

I have a zombie story in my brain. It's basically a dystopian style, but it is definitely something I have never done before. I'm trying to figure out the tone of it all, but I think it would be a hit, especially if I can incorporate all the details I see in my mind's eye.

Wish me luck!

So what do you have waiting in the wings? What are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to writing?

If the flash fiction is helping you, keep at it.

Good luck! I am trying to thoroughly outline my new WIP (I'm usually a pantser).

That's the plan, Alex! Allison, good luck! I'm pretty much a pantser as well. I like to see where the characters take me.
