Creative Corner, February 2018

(by chris the cynic)

This is a place to share about any and all creative endeavors.  Could be what you’re working on, what you want to work on, what you’re frustrated about being blocked on, plans, random thoughts, finger painting, building a new world order, whatever.

It was created because, even though Writers’ Workshop is intended to be a place where any creative endeavor can be discussed, the name scared off people who weren’t writers.  (Which totally makes sense.)

Open Thread: Mid-Month Check In, January 2018

(by chris the cynic)

What have you been doing of late?  How are you?  Are you still alive?  So forth.

(sorry this is late)

[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]

Writer Workshop January 10th, 2017

(Posted by chris the cynic)

Those of you who also frequent Ana Mardoll’s Ramblings will find this somewhat familiar.  Here, as there, it was requested that there be a regular post to talk about writing projects (and other artwork-creation). Thus this post exists.

Anyone who would feel more comfortable talking about non-writing creative work in a thread that doesn’t have “Writer” in the name, you may find this month’s creative corner thread useful.

What are you working on? How are you feeling about it? What thoughts and/or snippets would you like to share? How does your activism work into your art? What tropes are you hoping to employ and/or avoid? Are there any questions you’d like to ask or frustrations you’d like to vent?  Writing workshop below!

[Bookkeeping note: this was posted on the 4th, but dated to the third so that the decon post wouldn’t be knocked out of its rightful spot.]

Open Thread: End of the Year

(by chris the cynic)

It’s the last open thread of the year.  This even if I forget next week’s, which, let’s be honest, I probably will.

There are a lot of ways to react to something ending.  Some popular ways are: not at all, reflection, and putting the damned thing behind you and not giving it any more thought.  The first one doesn’t really yield much to say, but the second and third possibly could.
