Sunday Sessions

SUNDAY SESSIONS IN SILVER STREET HULLEvery Sunday I will be browsing the gigantic entity known as the World Wide Web to hunt down sites I think can be valuable tools for all of you as writers. Each week I will post five sites for you to check out. If you have a favorite site out there that you go to and you want to share as always pass along the information to me and I will include it.  Each week will be different with topics ranging from studio tips to inspirational sites. I am a firm believer in refilling the well of inspiration. I often find myself going to the internet for ideas when I am stuck for something to write about.

1. Studio acoustics and soundproofing basics.

Some of you out there might be wanting to record audio to add to your chapbooks or to replace them. One of the benefits of making CD’s to bring to shows as merchandise is that it can be a lot more cost effective. This site goes over the basics of soundproofing an area to use as a studio. You don’t need a lot to record a cd. A computer and usb mic will get the job done. Having an area that is quiet makes the recording process a lot easier.

2. RainyMood: Rain makes everything better.

If your like me then you like to have some sort of background sound going on and the TV or radio can bela pluie n'a pas de couleur / no colour for th...distracting when your trying to get some serious writing done. I stumbled over this site today and instantly fell in love with it. The site is simple. It is a continuous recording of a rainstorm. One click and you have a great ambient background noise to get you where you need to be with your writing process.

3. Psychology Today: Creating in Flow.

This site goes over seven different techniques for fighting distractions. With the world we live in today being full of all kinds of sounds, lights and things all screaming for us to pay attention, how do we get focused and just write? If you have a hard time getting down to the nitty gritty then this site is for you!

4. Ted Talks: The Magic of Truth.

If you haven’t heard of Ted Talks yet then I want to know where your rock is and plan my next vacation there. Seriously though if you haven’t heard of them yet then check this site out. This is a video I watched earlier today and my mind is still blown. True it may not relate directly to writing or your creative process, but sometimes watching something cool is just what we need to get back to writing amazingness.
