IWSG: September, 2014
The IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh and is a forum for writerly types to vent their fears/frustrations/problems with writing and publishing, among other things. This month's co-hosts are Mark (Melvin) Koopmans, Sheena Kay Graham, Laura, and Shah Wharton. Drop by and send them all some love, won't you?
Ever have too much of a good thing?
You know what I'm talking about.....it's like eating too much ice cream and getting an 'ice cream headache' or drinking enough coffee to cause you to tremor more than the San Andreas Fault.
That's sort of where I'm at in my writing, now. When it rains, it pours.
Not so much with my blogging (sorry about that), but with story ideas. I'll be chugging along with one idea and then, BAM!, another will pop into my head. Or I'll start coming up with dialogue between characters I've yet to create. I'm sure this isn't strange for some, but it's not how my writing process usually goes.
Maybe it's time to embrace that change?
Even though life does it to me, all the time, I'm not that great with change. I like routine, I like order, I like predictable. I'm not the most spontaneous sort. I think those are some of the reasons that I enjoy writing.....it's a process and I have my own little routine.
And that could be my problem. Maybe I'm too entrenched in my routine to be fluid enough for writing?
It's something I'll need to think on and investigate more but, in the meantime, I'm going to ride the "bolt" for as long as I can :)
