Nifty writing unblockage

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours drawing, for the first time in too long, as a respite from struggling with problems in the plot of a new story I've been developing. Then I went to bed. I woke up at around 2:30 a.m., and had so many new ideas for the story that I had to get up and write notes. This morning I'm happy to report that the notes are coherent, and the plot is nearly solved. Drawing: always a good idea!

This seems so perfect for you, Nayad. As you've probably noted, almost all the big time (and not so big time) writers have their own rituals for writing. Perhaps this will become part of yours.

For what it's worth, I've been dabbling a bit in digital graphics and painting. Already bought the latest version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite (right when versions changed so I had to spend another 30 bucks to get the upgrade CD - no manual) and now am thinking of a combo buy of Corel Painter X. I might get Painter bundled with a new digitizing tablet too as my old Watcom is a bit on the teeny tiny side according to some artistic type folks in the know.

Have you ever worked with computer graphics as part of your artistic gig? I don't recall seeing any in the past when I looked at your galleries but maybe I've just got some bad sectors in my noodle.

I bought the upgrade to my old CorelDRAW compatible drawing suite in part to qualify for an upgrade price on Painter X. Here's the temptation zone. :)

dude, i had the same epiphany this week!
i started working on what could be loosely described as a painting, and it's totally helped my sanity working on something ELSE that I've ben struggling with.
