Take a good look at the dude in the picture. Okay, did you look? Well, does he look familiar? No? Maybe just his expression, that savage hatred as he screams at the computer. As soon as I saw that picture I thought, 'Hey! He must be a writer like me!' LOL
This is the way I've felt lately. The last few days it's been hell trying to get anything written in my WIP. I kept asking myself why? Why am I hitting this wall every single time I try to write a few sentences? Then yesterday it hit me. I'd written myself into a corner. I couldn't get onto the next chapter because the two previous chapters were a friggin' mess. So I sat down and started revising and revising...and revising. I spent the entire day redoing the screw up. Once I had it fixed, it was like a light bulb went off in my head. I started to write and ended up getting 13 pages written. YES! Finally, I'm back on track and this story is starting to make me proud again. Oh, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking so today is going to be another 13 pages, right? Wrong. It's Spring Break so my kids are off school. LOL
Why does this always happen? Just when you get your head all straightened around, all you want is to write and write and write, but life gets in the way. Eh, that's okay, I'll find time later. Today and tomorrow are for my kids. We've been waiting for these two days to come for months now. My youngest daughter has the day all planned out, too. First the park, then we're going to do some shopping. Tomorrow more shopping and the movies. Yeah, the manuscript can wait a bit. My kids come first.
The good news is, I know what I want to write. The scene is once again in my head and the jumbled mess has been cleared away. Whew.
