Writing Assignment to Break Writer's Block

simple.

just write;
"i don't want to write about__________"
then let it rip. (free write...)

every time you bog down, write:
"and i certainly don't want to write about____________
and i would hate to write about_______
and i will NEVER write about________

scary, huh?
but way cool results, really.

what don't you want to write about?

Je ne veux pas écrire sur moi, mais seulement peindre mon ressenti...
Je ne veux pas écrire sur hier, mais sur demain...
Je veux écrire je t'aime à mes enfants...
Bisous à vous,

Interesting! I'm torn. The things I *don't* want to write about (my life story, my mother, my father, the abuse I suffered) are also things I *do* want to write about. Some things I would never write about would be anything that I consider gratuitously gross, such as the first thing you don't want to write about! (((hugs)))

My trouble is summed up in these words if you change it to paint rather than write.

Angel-Star said...

and what wants to paint you??
