Random Inspiration

12 06 2011

Whenever I’m bored with the internet and need new things to do online (read: ways to avoid writing), I usually turn to StumbleUpon. Usually, I look at recipes, read about religions, 100 little known facts about the human body, or play a webgame until I’m ready to punch my computer in the face with frustration. Totem Destroyer is a personal favorite.

Today, though, I came across a website that gives you random quotes. The first quote to come up was from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

I believe the same could be said for my story that I’ve been neglecting to write anything about the last several weeks. I’ve been so focused on deciding on plots and direction that I’ve forgotten to just write. At this stage of writing, direction doesn’t matter. I can always go back and revise my plot and figure out the kinks later. For now, I  need to stretch my writing muscles and get back into the habit.

Also, I’m on level 20 of Totem Destroyer.
