As if my previous post on my own pro wrestling RPG was not enough! Here’s more!
After finishing work on my last novel, I’ve been having fun with writing short stuff. I did a writing challenge of four stories in one week last week. Now, I’m writing “vignettes”, basically story stuff that ain’t a story yet, by listening to Pandora (tuned to Mogwai!) and using ancient Japanese poems as writing prompts. It’s been a lot of fun, and here’s my favorite Japanese poem from today’s excursion
Though the purity
Of the moonlight has silenced
Both nightingale and
Cricket, the cuckoo alone
Sings all the white night.
If you dig these kind of “brainstorming” or “idea generating” writing activities, you might want to check out an article I wrote about it. “Hearing the Music” was published at the Internet Review of Science Fiction before they died, but the site is still up.
