A friend, cup of coffee, and the inspiration I needed to start writing again.


I picked up my book today and I started writing.

Wow, I can’t believe I can say that. It has been a really long time since I have felt the itch, desire, or creativity to write. And all because a friend, a cup of coffee, and an inspiring Tuesday Talk. And what a mess I have made. I am hoping this will be for the best but time will tell.

I can’t remember exactly when I stopped writing but I do remember why. I was stuck in a chapter I couldn’t get to flow right and something was bugging me about the book. I decided to take a week off, to see if I could hash this out in my brain. Well, a week turned into a couple, which turned into a couple more, and before I knew it, I was on sabbatical.



After months and out of nowhere, something clicked. I started thinking about the book again and how I needed to change this one idea. Not only would the book flow better, but the plot would make more sense. If only that one idea wasn’t such a big change.

Today I have worked through the first chapter, again, and made the changes to the character. I still need to get through the rest of the chapters I wrote but I don’t think I will need to change much.

All in all, it felt great to write. And I wonder if this book will ever make it past the editing, creating, and editing some more. Looks like time will tell πŸ™‚

  1. Congrats on the motivation to write again! That’s exactly what I need… some motivation and to quit procrastinating!

  2. I know! It’s like every time I sit down and try to write, I either get distracted or interrupted, can’t focus, or just can’t think of anything TO write. Hopefully I’ll get it sorted soon! Good luck with your writing!

  3. This is the best thing I’ve heard in a long time, there’s nothing better than to see someone pick up the book they once stopped working on! I really hope you work on it and write something that you’d be proud of. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh gosh, I know the exact feeling! Now that I am motivated to write, I don’t have the time. I’m not sure how people actually get any writing done. I hope you are able to come up with something to write, good Luck!!

  5. I did write some the other day. It felt more like editing because I changed the character and that caused a ripple affect. I’m still in the process of working on the ripple affect but I think it will be for the best πŸ™‚


  6. I’m not sure how they get it done either. Especially if they have children! Like me πŸ˜‰ Good luck to you as well.

  7. Great, great! The devil is in the details, I guess. I’m so glad you found that Tuesday Talk inspiring, and I hope that in the coming days, we see and get more updates about the progress you’ve made!
