Making a list February 28, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — itsy @ 5:50 pm

I was browsing around looking for inspiration and a way to dig myself out of this rut I’ve fallen into when I came across Hit Those Keys, a site by Lisa Firke.

Among her suggestions for clearing writing blocks:make a list for your character.

Cute, I thought. And useful. Thinking about what your character might have on his or her agenda will spark thoughts like, “Gee, he does have to do that. Maybe I should write a scene where that happens.” Furthermore, it makes your character more real, and that certainly can’t be a bad thing.
