IWSG: Lazy Days


It's the first Wednesday of a new month, which means it's time for another round of Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG) postings. The IWSG was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, where members can share their writerly struggles and triumphs with other members. My post today would have to be relatively short, since I don't have anything to say really, other than how lazy I've been lately.

Last month, being the first month in a shiny new year, I announced all my writerly goals for 2013. But since then, I have drawn no closer to attain any of those goals. There's no excuse really, I've just been lazing around, waiting for something to happen. I don't even know what exactly. A spark of inspiration perhaps.

On the bright side, I did manage to dust off my Xbox in all that downtime. It had been relegated to the bottom of the shelf for the past year and a half. Since then, I've plowed through my long-forgotten copy of Fable 2 and presently have my sights set on that equally-forgotten copy of Skyrim. That could be considered as research, right?

  1. I call movie-watching research, so why not?
    It will come back. Writing comes in spurts and phases.

  2. I should be watching 500 films. Instead, I've moved house and decided to play Xbox, watch a full series of Lost and get around to watching some of the Blu Rays I've had sat around for a while.

    Time off isn't a bad thing. It gives you time to reflect on what could be done better. At least, that's what I tell myself!

    1. Very true. Thanks Ed, and keep those movie reviews coming.

  3. Inspiration comes from a lot of places. Maybe you could write a book based off the world of "Skrim"? ;)

    1. That sounds nice. I always admire the scope and level of detail that goes into creating video game worlds like Skyrim. I'm almost always sad by the time the credits start rolling and you realize it is all over.
