Writing

Jeff Atwood has an interesting piece on writing:

“If you can demonstrate a willingness to write, and a desire to keep continually improving your writing, you will eventually be successful.”

And it’s true.

“Inspiration is a word used by people who aren’t really doing anything. I go into my office every day that I’m in Brighton and work. Whether I feel like it or not is irrelevant.”
Nick Cave

So as well as the longer pieces here, I also like to set challenges, however silly or small, such as writing a series of shorts on Amazing Noses. Not sure where they’ll go, or what’ll they’ll say, but having a topic and trying to write about it, regularly, creates creativity. Back in school if you got a detention and had to stay behind they would have you write for an hour on something like the inside of a ping pong ball. I found that great, and the hour flew by.

So here are a few written pieces, up here for better or worse.

Read this first! Done? Sweet, you rock, thank you.

All characters appearing in these works are completely fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Really.
