Day 1 of Script Frenzy

So it’s mid-afternoon on day 1 of Script Frenzy and I’ve cleaned the kitchen, done three loads of laundry, walked the dog, cooked a big brunch, checked Facebook and Twitter and now I’m writing a blog post. Have I written a poem yet? Uh, no. But rest assured, before I go to bed, I will. Two of them. At least. But I guess I have some procrastinating to get out of my system first.

    Kitchen, laundry, dog, brunch… Sounds like you had a busy day! How are the two poems coming along? 🙂

    • Diann Writes says:

      It’s going pretty well. I get off work later than I’m accustomed to with my new job so I’m writing on my lunch hour and in the mornings. And I jot notes all day long when an idea strikes me.

      Thanks for asking!

      • Anna says:

        And thank you for replying to my question! 🙂 Ah, so you carry a notebook around? I guess that is something I should start doing too.

      • Diann Writes says:

        Yes, Anna! I carry a small moleskine notebook in my purse and I keep another bigger notebook by the bed. No idea will escape me!

    I should try that some time… I hope you don’t mind my questions! 😀 I was just wondering how you jot down ideas? I mean, is it outlined or do you write down random phrases or sentences that comes across your mind at any given time?

    • Diann Writes says:

      So, it’s usually phrases or sometimes a paragraph or a dream sequence. I’m not an outliner (I hated outlining in school and it stuck!) so I generally just put down notes, sentences or sometimes poems. I also jot down ideas for future book topics or poems.

      More questions? I’m happy to help if I can.

      • Anna says:

        Thank you! 🙂 I was thinking maybe it would be a great idea if you could spare some time to blog about your flow? I mean, like what you do with your idea notes, how does it help you in creating a new story, etc. Just a suggestion. 🙂

      • Diann Writes says:

        Brilliant. I love that suggestion. Now I have to pay attention to how the process actually works. LOL

    Great! 😀 And I am looking forward to that post 🙂
