Have you ever listened to a song, or an artist, and had it hit you in a completely new way, and give you a completely new countenance for the day? That happened to me today.
I’ve been working (or rather, haven’t been working) on my senior project iPhone app idea, and I’ve been hitting a lot of roadblocks that I’m not accustomed to dealing with. I haven’t been able to write out my idea and plans for weeks, and then I just took a day and wrote. My first point of this post: When writer’s block hits, one way to overcome it is to forget about editing, forget about grammar, and forget about spelling. Just write. Don’t think, just write. That’s how a rough draft begins. I grew up in school never writing drafts. I hated it, with every fiber of my being. Why in the world do I have to write the same paper 5 times for an English class? I would write the paper, then edit it four times, and didn’t think anything more of it.
