Today is the blog hop for Writer Therapy, a fun a quirky blog for writers of every stripe… And I almost completely forgot!! My brain is in the sick zone today. I have a kid with a fever, a husband with a fever, and my own clogged up thinking process to tend to today, so you’ll (please?) excuse the lateness of my post.
To participate in the blog hop, follow these simple steps.
- Write a post about what you use as your writing therapy (pinterest, chocolate, a TV show, book, ect) and how it helps you.
- Pick a Writer Therapy badge and add it to your blog sidebar. (Find badges here)
- Have your blog post go up on the morning of October 22, 2012. We’ll post a new blog entry here early that morning with links.
- If you sign up for the blog hop, make sure you comment on at least 5 other blogs on October 22.
My own therapy is reading. And TV. And chocolate. And naps. Apparently, I need a lot of therapy!!
In a way, writing itself is a therapy for life. All the ups and downs are fodder for the next plot idea or character arc.
But! When I’m stuck and the muse is silent and my characters are mad at me, I watch some of my favorite TV shows, read some of my favorite books, and buy out the chocolate from the gas station next door. I know every attendant there and if I’m buying chocolate in bulk, they know to stay silent and look away because Crazy Writer Lady just walked in.
Great. now I’m thinking about chocolate. A lot of chocolate… Okay. Now I have to go next door and buy some. I hope they’ve restocked since I was there last!
