Writing wierd..and loving it

So..you tried to write the great American Novel and now that you look at it..you are thinkin..man this sucks..What to do..what to do.
I have an idea. Start by making yourself a prompt. Find a wierd picture on the internet..then sit down and make up a story to go with it. Do that a few times a week. Then sit down and open the Novel..as you read..do the prompt. You will discover that you can suddenly add new and fun things to your book. We have a way when we write of jotting down the story, get finished and edit and we're done..until later on.. Then we get the after I wrote it remorse blues.
See? No? Try the prompts..put about your novel for a few weeks. Then you will see. It will come alive again.
