Just Do It

I challenge you to give me 3 words to inspire...

Okay. Desire. Innocence. Illusion. and for good measure: Diabolic.

And Persistence. My three words (different each time) were eaten and are somewhere in the blogosphere...so this is my 4th try.

There are so many good words, it's hard to stop!

Nienke said...

Illusion and diabolic? Oh Pepek, you do make me smile!

chocolate cookie dough.

Okay, more serious:
bizarre, twisty, art.

Bhaswati said...

Morning, food, mystery.

Just typing off the top of my head. :P

That's a nice website. Thanks for the link.

Enchantment, Fantastic, Conflict

Dr. Bill Emener said...

Luscious... feisty... dreamy.
Okay, now what exactly is this... some sort of vocabulary-based Rorschach? (Each of our three words probably are saying more about each of us than anything else.) And that's not an invitation for you to analyze mine (but if you do... please share.)
Did I mention "delicious"?

Oh goody, I love games like this. Accordion, twilight, mockingbird.

Hmm... I thought the three words were supposed to form some kind of inspirational sentence? Here goes...

Cure the disease.

If your story development process has problems, don't just treat the symptoms and keep on churning out stuff you're not happy with in the blind hope it'll magically get better.

Blow the whistle, stop the badness machine, and trouble shoot your story's development. Find out what's wrong and fix it.

Cure the disease!

Oh, I just saw 'The Majestic' with Jim Carey - it was a terrific film! Very campy and silly, and one of those "Awwwww!" films. It was inspiring and inspired me to give you these three words:

He couldn't remember...

:-)

rebirth, agony, childish

Oh. Three words in a row that inspire...

Just Keep Breathing.

The titles of two excellent writing advice books lend themselves to the three word challenge:

Fiction is Folks
(by Robert Newton Peck)

Goal - Motivation - Conflict
(by Debra Dixon)

But my own personal favorite truism is:

Writing begets writing!

I guess I have no right to give you words to inspire, since lately I failed to inspire myself (at writing in my blog). I blame it on my busy job :( But I use those words to inspire myself at work, so maybe they help!

(...and glad you liked the links :))

Tess said...

No words from me either. Like Rene, I have the blahs.

And, just to clarify - we're not building the house ourselves :) Our builder, Bruce, and his minions are doing it for us! Sean would love to do it, but with working full time... And if I built the house, well, it wouldn't stand for more than a second *g*.

Nienke said...

Semantics, dear Tess. Although my husband did actually GM our project (and assist in every aspect of it - he does do renos for a living) I still know how it feels to be a part of every single step and nail along the way. Trust me, it'll be over before you know it. It's been 4 years since we finished, but I remember feeling like we'd never finish!

What are you doing with these? Definitions? Descriptions? Magic?

Mouthsucking wine,
Take it out for a walk--your brain that is,
and
enervating which I finally realized is the opposite of energizing, after using it totally wrong for a long time.
