**Just throwing it out there...today is my birthday (I'm 23 - Blink-182 says no one will like me now...oh my). So, yeah...wooo birthdays!!!**
Well hello all! This blog post is part of the Writer Therapy Blog Hop! So, without further ado, my post on MY writing therapy...
You really want to know?
Well, here's my answer. My writing therapy is...
Chocolate. Dove chocolate, to be exact.
Going to the movies, and the movie popcorn that goes along with it.
Watching TV shows that make me think, that I can't live without, and that can always keep me guessing.
Twitter...I never thought I would love Twitter as much as I do, but there you go.
Grad school in a weird way, because I've got...you know...papers to write that aren't stories.
Avoiding cleaning my part of the apartment (sorry roommates!)
MUSIC. I can't stress this enough. Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles pretty much helped me write my book(s).
Now, how do these things help me with writing?
I HATE silence. So music helps me fill that unbearable gap.
Chocolate is delicious...and the best pick me up a gal could ask for.
Movies/TV shows all provide me with lots of inspiration and more stories/characters to love. I wouldn't be who I am today if I had never discovered Buffy, or Tracey Flick, or Walter Bishop, or Scar, I wouldn't be who I am today. Seriously.
Twitter helps me because the whole writing community seems to live on there! If I need a tweet of encouragement or want to know what's going on in the writing world, all I have to do is log-in! Plus, I also now have a penchant for hashtagging haha
Grad school and not cleaning help me whenever I need a distraction from writing...or, sometimes, they provide me with a random AHA! moment that helps me along with whatever I'm working on.
So, yeah, that's prettyyyyyyyyy much it!
