Okay, so here's a puzzle for you I tried today - Orbox B. I'm stuck on level 12.
I also wrote a short story today following lyrics of a song I heard.
I remember reading once in one of the blogs I frequent about writing based on, or inspired by song lyrics (sorry, I can't remember who). Apparently, I'm not the only one who does this. I guess it's easy, or even more like a natural progression. The emotional load is already present, the skeleton and the premise are present as well. All that needs to be done is to dress it up. So I find that songs often inspire me into writing, although I'm not sure I write well while actually listening to music.
I also tend to mostly write short fiction when it's based on lyrics, but I once wrote a novella (I think 20,000 words is a novella, right?), each chapter beginning with a line of a song's chorus. Four chapters altogether.
All in all, I'm really proud of myself. I'm doing everything to get out of my rut/funk/tired self. I'm starting to feel the wheels grinding, the sharpening, the focusing...
