I’m a long-time M*A*S*H fan.
My daughter and I sometimes get on these, who said what, trivia kicks.
Each trying to catch out the other in a “gotcha” moment.
I always win of course.
All right. Maybe she does.
I remember one quote from Hawkeye when asked if he volunteered for duty in the war.
He said, “Are you kidding? I was under the front porch with an ice pick in my hand trying to puncture an eardrum when they came to get me.”
I guess he wasn’t too inspired to serve his duty in the war.
Ever get like that with writing?
Lack inspiration, that is.
Maybe your ear drum is your inspiration.
And it’s not an ice pick aimed at it, but…
Don’t have anything to write about.
Just don’t feel like writing.
Have to feel the creativity flow first.
Dog needs walking.
Got to get up early tomorrow.
Guitar is out of tune and its way over there.
Not being channeled to write right now.
Boss yelled at me and it’s bothering me.
A cartoon friend of mine does something every time he sits down to draw.
It’s a little thing that stabs his inspiration blocker right through the heart…
And he’s got a whole jar of these things sitting on his shelf.
I’ll tell you about how he kills the inspiration zombie in July’s Tune Booster.
I’ve got a similar trick for songwriters.
We’ll expose some things which prevented me from being inspired when sitting down to write.
We’ll even give permission to not write at times.
Plus, how some writers you may have heard of before are inspired.
A whole deal on inspiration and keeping the zombies away.
In fact, writer’s block is a bunch of bullcrap. I don’t care who says it’s real, it ain’t and we’ll prove it.
We’ll even find out what Chuck Schultz, the creator of Peanuts, had to say about writer’s block.
For now though. Get June’s Tune Booster while it’s still up.
Coming down shortly.
If you join in July, there’s no June issue to be had there.
