The creative urge stirs at last...
I had fun yesterday at Fantasycon. birdsedge had recommended it, saying it was more writerly than Eastercon and I really enjoyed my day there.

I did a story structuring workshop run by Heide Goody and Iain Grant, two writers whose books I've enjoyed. I didn't particularly learn anything new, but their whole approach and enthusiasm got me excited about writing again and so this morning I opened up the stuck novel for the first time for ages. Time to stop spending so much time on Twitter and write instead!

Great! I hope you can sustain your motivation!

My son David once had a school project that led to him interviewing several science fiction and fantasy novelists about their work, and one of them said his trick to keeping things going was to always end for the day before his eagerness for the writing had run out, and with a clear idea of what he was going to do next. That made it relatively easy to get started the next day.
