Drafts, Worthy or Crap?

This is a follow up to my last post.  It’s not that I’m not writing.  I am!  It’s just that what I’m writing is crap!  I get this great inspiration to start something, I go at it and then… I fizzle out.

Here’s what I’ve got going:

  1. A short story about a limo driver that drives for a Mafia boss.  He falls in love with the boss’s wife and begins an affair.

2. A post about my many name changes. – Kind of a follow up to me changing the name of my blog.

3. A post about Introverts and how the word “Introvert” is misinterpreted.

4. “No good deed goes unpunished.”  A short story about good intentions that go wrong.

5. A prompt I saw-“a 60 year old photo”.

6. Another prompt I saw-“someone that should be in jail”.

All of these things are in various stages of draft.  So I AM writing.  Each one of these things have the potential to be good, but I’ve run into problems with every stinkin’ one of them!

I’ve never had this happen to me before.  Yes, once on a while something I start doesn’t work out.  But this is just crazy!

Suggestions?  Ideas?

Crap Block

I don’t have writer’s block.  I’m writing.  But I’m not writing anything worth a damn.  I’m spewing crap onto the page.

I’ve got 5 or 6 things in draft, but none of it is worth seeing the light of day.

I have Crap Block.  My brain is blocked with nothing but crap and that is what lands on the page.

I want to write.  I’ve got the urge to write.  That itch that propels me toward the keyboard is there.  But what is happening between my brain and my fingertips is pure crap.

What’s the cure for Crap Block?

Everyone Else Has the Best Titles

G’day, I’m Jess from Down Under and I decided to write this whole post in ‘Strayan (that’s Australian).

Youse blokes reckon we speak English down here but you’ve got the wrong end of the stick, mate. Down under we speak ‘Strayan. When the pommes and yanks come over for holidays they look at us like we’re batshit crazy when we open our mouths. Probably because they only understand one word in ten but also because we let rip with a few ‘bloody oaths’… and worse! See, swearing down under isn’t quite the nasty it is overseas. Two mates will often refer to one another affectionately as “Aw, you sick c**t”. And if we’re unsure of something, we quite happily proclaim “Buggered if I know!” Even when we’re trying to be polite, swearing just pops into the Aussie drawl… “I’m busy as a blue-arsed fly today.”

But, no worries mate, we…

Here a Penny, There a Penny…

For better of for worse, I’ve made the leap and changed the name of my blog yet again.  It is now Penny Wilson Writes.  My Domain name is also https://pennywilsonwrites.com/

I hope this isn’t too confusing and I hope you will hang in there with me!

No matter how you try to find me, Penny Lane’s Thoughts, Penny Lane Writes, or Penny Wilson Writes, you should still get redirected to right here.

So hang on tight!  Let’s enjoy the next part of this journey together!

Thank you, Penny Wilson!

Another Name Change?

When I first started my blog, I called it “Penny Lane’s Thoughts“, using the name Penny Lane as a playful nod to the Beatles.

Since then, I’m taking my writing more seriously.   So I changed the name of my blog to “Penny Lane Writes“.

As an author, I will be using my real name, Penny Wilson.  I worry that if people look for me, they will not find me with the Penny Lane name.

As much as I adore the name Penny Lane, It’s not who I am.  I’m Penny Wilson.  I am thinking about making another name change to my blog and calling it “The Musings of Penny Wilson” or some such thing.  I haven’t decided on a name for sure yet.

I’ve even secured the pennywilsonwrites .com just in case.

Do you think another change will just confuse people?  Thoughts?

Writing And Amazement

One of the amazing things about writing is when the writer sees something emerge, possibly something wonderful, that surprises even it’s creator.
