Today the Writers Group met. No prize for guessing that once again I had nothing to read out. But this week I really should have had something, even if it wasn't related to the homework.
I've spent my Easter break doing all sorts of things and feeling really inspired but I never got past this feeling to an idea to write about. I find this happens quite often and is really frustrating. I find myself buzzing with 'inspiration' but can't find the outlet, whether it be a story or drawing or just making something. It feels like there are hundreds of ideas in my head but every time I try to use one it escapes and leaves me with nothing but a glimmer of how amazing it would have been if I'd manage to grab it.
Anyway this months homework is to write a short story, essay or poem using the form of an instructional article, employing a step-by-step method, such as ‘how to know if you’re enlightened’ or ‘ten steps to losing your mind’. (taken from Jack Heffron's The Writer's Idea Book)
