When I got home yesterday from work Chris had made us biscuits and gravy. All that work and he was still headed to work that night. And it was gooood!!! I also got my issue of The Writer in the mail. The issue is about writing blocks which is fortuitous because I seem to have hit a bit of a block myself. I can think a mean game but I pick up a pen to write and it all goes blank. There is nothing to write. Just vague ideas that I can’t get to form. I am hoping to do better today in regards to my writing. I am going to pull out my various notebooks and a pen and work on atleast one project for a few pages. Or maybe a time frame is better? I guess we’ll see when I get there.
I always feel motivated to write but once I start it all freezes up. I am not sure how to over come it. I have tired just sitting and staring at the page for x amount of time. I have tried the various page layout to “think on paper”. I need something more. So if I don’t find relief this morning I will start combing through my books for help. Typing that makes me smile. I’m not going to “Google” it or look online. I’m doing it the old fashioned way. I’m going through my library.
I still have my books from when I was trying to take the writing course through Writer’s Digest all those years ago. I think that might be a very good place to start. I could still go through it all but I just would have the feedback (I had Stephen King’s editor at the time….😱). Maybe that is really where I need to start. It was set up so that you were working on a project during the class and would turn in a completed first draft at the end. I think that is my plan.
I am so grateful to all of you for your help and input. Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!
