the writing tool you didn’t know you needed
What’s the first thing you do when it’s time to work on the ol’ WIP?
No, no! Bad, writer! Bad!
That’s right. Turn on the computer.
And what do you see when you turn on your computer? Blue? A windows logo? Quelle dommage, my little oompah-loompah, how inspiring is that?
I assert that the writing tool that you never knew you needed is the perfect wallpaper background. It will set your mood for your entire writing session. Cue your subconscious. Maybe you want to stick with the same scene for your entire novel, maybe you want to change it up to keep your creativity stirred. Here are some sites to get you started:
The caveat: be sure you have a virus scanner in place before you go downloading wallpapers willy-nilly. And be leery of any sites with nekkid girls. They’re usually loaded with spyware and such.
(Under the category of “Blind Leading the Blind”…When you find the wallpaper you want, find the size you want. Then right click with your mouse. Choose “set as desktop background”, then on the next screen, “stretch” and “set desktop background”.)
Now you can add changing your wallpaper to the long list of procrastination writing tools in your box.
