Find a quote/line from something you’ve written far in the past—the more it makes you cringe the better—and rewrite it. Post your result.
'Her hand suddenly turns cold, which is very odd for a fire demon.'
'Without warning, a peculiar chill runs through her hands. She pauses, unsettled by the change.'
Welp, that’s probably a good place to stop for now.
But man, that scene was too fun to write. =’D But it’s gonna need editing. The way one thing went looked a little bit… weird. So I’m going to have to think about how to fix it.
But it was a scene I’ve been meaning to write for a while and I finally wrote it, at least in draft form. Hooray!
…But for now, it’s way past my bedtime.
"[Person]’s face went wide."
…Eyes. I meant to say eyes. >_>
I’m writing a fight that has now turned very ugly and they’re now calling each other nasty things while trying to kill each other, and there will probably eventually be tears involved mixed in with the blood.
This is way too much fun. =D

Writing is weird.
One minute you are telling a story.
The next minute you are researching the average amount of snowfall Edinburgh gets.
or how to kill someone with a piece of barbed wire and a tomato
Or how much force it takes to dent a human skull with a can of Pepsi.
what the hell are you guys writing?
So I was trying to go to bed last night.
I got some inspiration on something I’m planning on writing. It wouldn’t get out of my head and I was worried about losing it.
So that’s why the night before a big homework assignment is due, I got out of bed at 1:15am and spent an hour writing 985 words which can basically be summed up as one of my characters chewing another character out.
