All has not been lost. I find that even when I am not creatively writing I can often find things to stoke the fires and keep me feeling warm and cozy about it. This week I give you - The Journeyman Writer. Now, I've told you about Storywonk (love it!) - it's on the sidebar over there >>>
Podcasts are not new to Storywonk, they have been the soul in there, almost since the beginning. And I love most of them (even when they get long), but my new favorite is Alastair's The Journeyman Writer - It's short (5-10 min) and guess what, he is like the voice of reasonable writing reason in your head, with a slightly lovely Scottish lilt (although living in the USA for the last few years has mellowed it considerably). Alastair gives little moments of thoughtful writerly goodness and then - sends you off to your own journey. You magically feel more creative, more inspired, and part of a greater writing community (because yes, there are people out there just like you). Please, stop by and give it a listen (you might find some other pod-castery goodness while you're there too - fair warning - don't come back and hurt me for your own twisty journey to writinghood.
If you're going to procrastinate, do it with style, do it with purpose, take a worthwhile side trip, and by all means have FUN! (Also, don't blame me if you're a closet storywonk - I only gave you the story-geek place to hang out... I never made you one. :D )
