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 🙂
