Yes my little Futurists, I realize that I reblog a lot (but the blog posts are sometimes astounding) so I thought I’d rip something that I think is a cute and quick and a tiny poll that is also interesting.

So, here’s the question:

What do you write with?

A fountain

pen

pencil

A computer

A typewriter

A ballpoint pen

Other:

The other can be several choices in one if you’re like me and write with whatever you can grab!

Why I don’t give star ratings for book reviews.

What does marginalised mean?

The organisations that help to fund Creative Futures define marginalised as those who feel they lack opportunities because of:
mental health issues

homeless people
substance misusers
offenders & ex-offenders
refugees
long term unemployed
the elderly
travellers
carers
people from LGB&T and BME communities.

Futurists! You MUST read (and apply) these words of wisdom from Ronovan–there may be a quiz–but in any case, you need to read this, especially if you are debating “giving it (writing) all up”.

I’ve always found the different ways that we scribblers describe our experiences with writer’s block very interesting. Also the different ways the seasoned writers suggest getting over it. Some suggestions are to work around your block, or force yourself to write through it, even if what you write is rubbish. Other advice is to write something completely different. We won’t mention those rather hurtful cries of, “Stop being such a wussy. Adorn yourself in adult underwear! Plumbers don’t get plumbers block!” All of these things can work with a bit of effort and confidence, but one bit of advice that you seldom see is to take a break from writing completely. As if a week away from writing anything will totally strip you of the ability to write at all. It is true that if you don’t do something for a good long while, you could get a little rusty…

Sometime earlier this year I posted the news that Spectral is going to publish a pamphlet of poetry in April 2016 (via Theatrum Mundi), reminiscent of the Yellow Book journals of the late 19th century and based around the King in Yellow mythos, edited by John Allen, called Songs of the Shattered World: The Broken Hymns of Hastur. Here’s an interview with the editor, originally posted to Thomas Ligotti Online, which gives an interesting insight into the interpretation of Robert W. Chambers’ creation.
