So, there’s this thing I call writer brain. That’s where, out of nowhere, characters start chatting with each other in my head … or plot solutions pop up waving streamers … or the rest of the world takes on a dreamy feeling while events in the book become crystal clear and sharp. That’s when I know my imagination is firing on all cylinders.
I haven’t felt that for a very very long time … until now!
Yeah, baby. It’s back.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The relief is overwhelming. Like the song says … you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.
So here’s what I’ll say to you folk out there who are on this insane writing journey with me, and are going through a tough time. Hang in there. You can get through this. Don’t try to force it, be patient and kind with yourself. Writer brain comes back.
And most important of all? No matter the crap you’re wading through – embrace it. Because at the end of the day it’s all good copy.
