Camp NaNoWriMo August 2012: How To Make Creative Juice

If you haven’t tasted Creative Juice or even heard of it, you should know that you’ve been living under a rock. Definitely. Without Creative Juice, I wouldn’t be able to get through many things – NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, Script Frenzy, 4-H projects, and more, but especially anything related to writing. The items listed in italics are general ingredients. You’ve probably made a few recipes where it said you can use this or this or that. Understand? The items listed in bold are specifically what I use!

1. In a very big bowl, dump in all your ideas, including the crazy ones –  a time machine, a crazy tabloid reporter, a platypus that only I can see, and a penguin who is talented at engineering.

2. Add some music that inspires youmovie soundtracks (by John Williams or Alexandre Desplat) and The Who.

3. Stir in something that relaxes you even when you’re way behind on your word-count goalsnuggling with my cat, listening to music, reading, and being weird.

4. Add a pinch of a book that you love that will help you to get through the month – the Harry Potter series, The Hunger Games, All Men of Genius, or the Kiki Strike series.

5. Add two gallons of water. You can substitute melted cheese for the water if you choose.

6. Mix everything together really well using a gigantic blender.

7.  Drink a lot of it. Drink like you’re Haymitch discovering a keg.

8. Turn into a fantastic writer and enjoy!

    One thing you forgot: Repeat as desired.
    And a few more…
    Disclaimers: Not guaranteed to make awesomeness appear immediately, or even reliably. It has been known to come and go like a hyperactive dimension-jumper. Side effects may include green skin, yellow eyes, and the abrupt loss of your nose.
    If this doesn’t take affect until you’re asleep and wears off before you wake up, say your favorite curse word and repeat dosage. This time make sure you don’t go to sleep for a few days.
    If it is undrinkable, you aren’t awesome enough to handle it yet.
