One Thousand Words – Abridged

Back in January I decided I would try out a writing advice from the famous novelist Stephen King, who talks about how you should write a thousand words each day, and to not even worry about quality, and then go back to edit it later. The idea being to get words written down, damn quality or any other factors that are stopping you from... Continue Reading →

Check Your Spam!

Most know that they should check their email spam-folder, but if you run a blog you also need to remember to check the spam-folder for your comments. I just checked the folder for the first time in a month, and there were six comments from regular commenters, and apart from that there were only three actual spam comments.... Continue Reading →

A Case For Diversifying Content

When I first started blogging, I read some advice that said I should find a niche, and stick with it. In fact, I have read a variation on that advice several times.   But by diversifying your writing, you get people with different interests talking to each other. It can be interesting to hear about... Continue Reading →

My First Article on ‘Medium’

I just wrote an article on Medium. The article was a compilation of my earlier writing inspiration blog-posts, rewritten as an article.

Writing Inspiration #5 – Other Writers

Writing Inspiration #4 was about taking inspiration from video essays, often about analyses of certain works or writers.

Writing Inspiration #4 – Video Essays

When I am stuck while writing, I watch video essays. Not to blindly follow the storytelling-advice they provide, but to shake something out from my brain that was already there, just a bit out of reach.   And not only video essays on writing. Also on moviemaking, game creation, making speeches, and more! Storytelling is storytelling. You... Continue Reading →

Writing Inspiration #3 – Nature

In my last post I told you about how the Hamilton-song "Non Stop" shames me into writing. This time I want to write about the beauty and horror you can find in nature, when taking a hike.   Walking in nature is great for your creativity! Even the glacier-hike I mentioned here before set my mind ablaze... Continue Reading →

Writing Inspiration #2 – Music

Like with visual art, there are many ways which music can inspire you when you write. It can set you in the correct mood or mindset. Or maybe the lyrics of a song can set your mind on an idea.   But for me the song below brings a particularly inspiring feeling to my heart. Shame! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9iLfPP4Ps8...
