I’ve got titan-sized thoughts shrugging their way through my brain matter. And this is the kind of shrugging that shoulders can do that also hold the Heavens and the Earth apart, so that we humans have a nice, comfy place to live. They’re important, humongous thoughts; FEAR, and COURAGE, PERSEVERANCE, and some LUST, too. My head aches from their shuddering footfalls and oversized, grabby hands. I’m alternating between attempts of fuzzy blanket naps and shoving more other-writer’s-blogs-about-writing into my head, hoping it will all coalesce into an overflowing, bounteous soup of Writerly Knowledge For Me To Share!
But, mostly it’s just a throbbing headache. Erg.
In more human-sized news, the notes for the Low-Budget Writing Program series is coming along nicely, so at some point I will be sharing something actually useful for new-ish writers. I get a piece of chocolate for useful posts, so I am super motivated!
I’ll have to admit that both general writing and revisions for my WIP haven’t been going well, and it’s not too surprising when you consider life, but I’ve seen these kinds of temporary blocks before (see attached pic), and just on the other side of them is writing-nirvana. The state of flow that makes writing as comfortable as slipping on your second favorite pair of pants. (The first favorite pair of pants being reading, of course.) I just have to find a decent sized crack to wedge some writing into, like opening a safe passage with the jaws-of-life, then more cracks naturally open up, and writing slips in. Or on, since I was using a pants metaphor. <sigh>
(I have been known to fall over while putting on pants, so, there is that.)
