Only halfway through March, but I've gotten a lot more practice with the DSLR. I know I said I wanted to try and steer clear of overly saturated images, and yet...
All of these photos are from my recent trip to Barbados, which you can read about here. I just wanted a space to save these images, so without any further ado...
Dear Writer's Block,
Would it be a cliche if I said 'screw you'?
As any aspiring novelist will find out, there are a lot of rules in writing--and I'm not talking about grammar. If you were to google "how to write" you'd eventually come across nifty little lists with titles like "Top 10 Things a Writer Should Never Do" or "50 Writing Mistakes That Weaken Your Novel, Will Never Get You Published, And Leave You Wallowing In Artistic Depression." These tips are often so overly specific you'd think the author had taken an email from their own editor and transcribed it into a blog post; or the advice is so abstract you'd think it was a featured workshop from GuyInYourMFA.
Of course, there's some good advice, universal advice even. But sometimes well-meaning advice just leaves you stuck, frozen.
