No Title Required

There are days when writing won't lend itself to a specific title. This is where all the "Untitled" works come from most days. These are the days when the thoughts even though organized will not lend themselves to be given a title.

Writing for a living often means researching subjects to gain insight. Spending weeks doing nothing but research endangers creativity. The mind develops a block that is hard to get past. The need to produce can override the need for the writing to make sense some days.


When you have no idea what you are going to write from day to the next it gets more difficult. Designating projects for yourself sometimes does little to help. The idea of scheduling out the time spent writing is foreign to some; unless they have deadlines to get things done and appointments to work around.

I would be working on writing a few books right now, three actually and while I am starting to get better at setting time aside to work on them each day there are some days that all I do is make notes about them. The deadlines I have set for myself are tenative. I hope to have at least one ready for beta by the end of February.

I know that I set aside time to write the flashes for the third edition of Flash in the Pan. Those aid in clearing the mind, it's reducing my wordiness too. Until next time, have a great day.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?
The word is Left, and this flash comes in at 62 of 75 word limit. Go over to M3 for the official rules and this quarters words for Finding the Path.

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
