calienteyfria: how do I get back?

I'm pretty much a dry writer.

I used to write prolifically. It has been probably about 7 years since I've wrote anything with substance, and that sucks.

How do you start the process again? Any ideas?

I would suggest writing about yourself in third person. Nothing fancy, just like what happened today. Or maybe a day you did something of substance. It doesn't have to be too interesting or have an astonishing climax, it should just demonstrate your writing abilities and structure ideas. Working with that will allow you to get started again. :)

when i'm stuck, i have this box which contains little slips of paper with random objects on it i.e. moonlight, mirror, cup, flower, etc. and then try to figure out how to tie them together.

that may not work...haha.

you turn the light out and go to bed, wake up the next day put on dirty clothes, pack a bag with paper and a cd player and go wounder around someplace interesting by yourself and feel how pretty things - like bare trees' sillohetes contrasting against a virbrant sunset - feel when your content and loney and peaceful. then you close your eyes and put it into pictures, let them carry you away to new pictures in your head until you forget what your doing. than put it into words. words come last and are the least important. words are the culmination of distinct, defined, brilliant mental pictures.

Try looking at things that surround you in a descriptive way. Don't worry about pretty, or the rules... don't ever worry about rhyming, but worry about rhythum -just let the words flow. Feel free to look at my stuff: http://myspace.com/crimsongarnet (the new stuff that is) and read the comments I've gotten -maybe something there will strike something in you. Or simply, if there is someone you like everything about, or the way that person thinks... write it down.

That's all I have. Hope this helps....
