I’m still on a high from what happened yesterday. I wrote, and it felt great-no, it was better than great-it was rejuvenating. I really haven’t written since November for my NaNoWriMo piece, so it was nice to get back to where I it all started.
Three nights ago I was talking to a writer friend who asked if I had done anything with a project he had read part of. I told him that I hadn’t picked it up in quite a while (15 months). It’s funny he mentioned it because the characters, Addie and Clay, had been on my mind for the past couple of weeks-I missed them. Well, yesterday morning I got a Tweet from a friend of mine who encouraged me to write! Since I had worked a lot on what I needed to get done during the weekend, I decided that there was no time like the present.
After sending out a few emails for a guest review that’s coming up, I was ready. I decided to read the whole thing over to refresh my memory. There were only 35 pages, but I felt it was important. I edited the whole way through, and finally at ten thirty last night, I started writing, and didn’t want to stop. I was exhausted, so I decided to try to go to sleep, but that didn’t happen because my mind was racing with ideas for my MS. With the hubby sleeping, I got my laptop and continued to write until 3 o’clock in the morning, but I didn’t want to. I’ve heard the same advice from some authors, “stop writing when you don’t want to,” or “when you’re at a peak point.” Normally, I would find this difficult, but I decided to give it a try, and I’m glad I did. When I woke up this morning, that “peak” point was the first thing I thought about! It’s for this, that I look forward to doing some serious writing today!
Have a great day!
