Walls & Brainstorming
I hit a wall yesterday in my WIP. (Outlaw in Petticoats) I"d written myself into a corner and was frustrated that I had. I found only one person I could IM- poor Eli! But she graciously let me run at the fingers ;) and before long I'd talked myself out of the corner and knew the direction I wanted to go and where I had to back up. Thanks Eli!
A whole chapter sprung from that inspiration and set the rest of the book a buzz in my head even as I reposed in bed last night, yawning, waiting for sleep to take me away. It's been a while since this book fully took over my thoughts. So, yesterday was a VERY good writing day! I hope to make today just as productive. But as I am nearing the end of this book- the next Petticoat book is taking root in my mind as well as thinking I want to get the kinks worked out of the spirit book. So, though one is flowing off my fingers tips, the others are percolating in the back of my brain!
And people wonder why writers are schizo!
How many books to you have brewing in your head at once, if you're a writer? If you're not a writer, do you have multiple tasks, ideas, thoughts swarming in your head that keep you always thinking?
PS: felt like eye- candy today! This would get me to go fishing!!
