Fun stuff to do on the Internet, aka Procrastination activities

Writers. 

Writers write.

But writers don’t always only write. Writers often procrastinate.

I wanted something different – but brief – for my NaBloPoMo post today, and in my search I found some things on the Net that would be great for those times of procrastinating. Call it character or theme research. 🙂  I will add them to my Writers’ Helps page later.

Check these out:

http://www.nasa.gov/  <—- This may be slow loading for you (it is photos)

http://www.howtofoldashirt.net/  <—-  This is a great thing, but I have tried it and although it looks very simple I haven’t fully mastered it yet. I think my brain can’t or won’t think that way, but I will keep working on it. This set of instructions seems a little better than the one I was using.

http://www.rinkworks.com/dialect/  <—- This one looks like great fun for when you are writing dialect for your characters, without going overboard with it, of course.

Today I was so tired, didn’t get any writing done on my NaNo novel. I did get one fun story idea drafted out for PiBoIdMo, though. That makes idea #18 for day 12.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Been so down myself that writing is a struggle. I don’t want to damage the story, so I get a word or two here and there. I’m ok with that. 🙂

    But man, all you got is 4 sites for procrastination?? I’ve got plenty more..and then they multiply because…oh look, shiny! 😀

    • Jamie, it’s so great to see you! I know life is an ongoing struggle for you, but you keep pressing in and going on. Admirable.
      I think you should not worry about damaging the story, just write. There is always editing later. Write and see what comes.

      I have more sites for procrastination but time was limited for me last night. 🙂 I appreciate ‘shiny’.
      If you look in my Writers’ Helps page you will find a few there, too, to which I’m adding these ones.

      Blessings to you, and keep on writing!

  2. What an awesome website (the dialect one)! Now I think I know how Brian Jacques did it (either that, or he’s just plain awesome)! I won’t check out the shirt one – my Mom gets fussy when I fold shirts the wrong way. 😉 Got any more websites? 😉

    • I think it could be fun to try writing a character using his own dialect, if not overdone.

      Maybe your mom could try the shirt folding and see if she likes it. 🙂

      I will have to share other websites later.
