Writing is consuming me. I have moved forward through a small blockade set up to ruin my predetermined time frame of completing my first-draft manuscript. This is good news (I think). I experienced an epiphany last night on a new direction for book number two. Of course, that would require I finish book number one.
Whenever I get stuck, I like to read someone else’s creation and forget my troubles for a while. There are great blogs out there to keep me inspired and I would like to thank the die-hard bloggers who breathe inspiration back into my life every morning.
Silence coming from my blog is actually progress being made on my novel. I have been working through a very tough scene and I think it’s time to walk away from it for a few days. Revision after revision after revision has left me back with my original words. I am looking for a way to just move forward without stalling on details that I know will get edited as part of the bigger picture.
I tried skipping to another scene that I have pretty well thought out in my head, thinking it would be easy to get it out and onto the paper. No such luck. Back I go, lost in the minutia.
