LisztomaniaOriginally, I heard this song and just enjoyed it. Then I started really listening to the lyrics. "From a mess to the masses" really caught my attention. This is how I view my writing. From a mess of ideas and crazy scribbles into a book which can be marketed to the masses.
Think less but see it grow
Like a riot, like a riot, oh !
I’m not easily offended
It’s not hard to let it go
From a mess to the masses
Actually a lot of the chorus can be applied to our writing:
Think less about your work, get writing and see your manuscript grow.I think this is my new motto.
Don't be easily offended by critique, it doesn't have to be hard to let it go.
Take your work from a mess and give it to the masses.
Also, don't be surprised if you see a blog redesign coming up. I've been playing with ideas in my head. But I have my goals: school, book, then blog. That's just how it has to be right now.
I did sacrifice an evening of homework and used an idea from J. Kaye's 365 Days of Novel Writing for mini-scene cards and now have the whole storyline laid out on a tack-board on my desk. It's really inspiring to see - now I just need to get my homework done!
