Blogspiration is a new weekly meme hosted by GrowingUpYA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike.
Now that I started writing, I'm on a roll!
I have to fight off frequent attacks from The Banes of Creativity. There are two in particular that have been aggressive:
The You Suck Duck, who quacks, "This Sucks! What are you thinking? This writing is pure gar-bage!"
The Distractinator, who tells me I should drink coffay, wash the dishes, talk to my roomies, read, pet the cat, pretty much anything besides write.
When The Banes come up, I think the best advice is to just, "keep calm and write something." Don't let them win!

Creating a Theme:
Theme is the message of the book, or the moral of the story. It's basically what you want to share with others. The main plot of the story should connect to the theme. I think with Wishing on Daisies the theme is something like "Believe in yourself, because you are more beautiful and powerful than you think."
What do you think about Theme? Do you try to consciously think of the story's theme, or do you let a theme naturally develop?
