Battle: Outline vs. Free-Writing

From "homestarrunner.com"

     Do you prefer to create an outline and fill in the blanks with your prose?  Do you love the freedom that free-writing affords?  “Do you has five bucks?”
     Well this week I will go over some of the merits of each and provide examples in my writing.  Feel free to post you own thoughts on the subject.

Monthly Writing Prompt and Drafting

     This week I decided to start posting on Monthly Writing Prompt to better connect with other writers and create a practice space.  I will be writing for the other prompts as well and posting them on the Monthly Writing Prompt page.

Less Talk, More Rock

From "All Good Songs" Blog
     I’m keeping up with the plans laid out in the last article, but the vibrancy was nowhere to be found this week.  It may be the sophomore slump or a post holiday lull, but it’s been difficult to refocus on writing.  As the blog title states and this entry proposes; I will be forcing myself to shut-up and write!

Laying Down the Law

     I hope you had a happy start to 2012, because it’s going to be a lot of hard work from here on out.  I’ve finally recovered from the holiday slump and prepared some new guidelines for this blog (…and writing in general).  Some might call them resolutions, but I like to think of them as goals to aspire toward (aw… hell, they are resolutions).
