Doing It Anyway

At some point, when one realizes one wants to be a writer–a real, true, working writer–it then becomes apparent that one must write.  Even when inspiration has flipped you off and it’s the last thing you want to do.  What do I do?  I make a go of it with pen and paper.  I write very informally, almost as if I’m talking to myself. (“So, this is the part where character 1 finds out what character 2 has really been up to.  She’s pissed and more than a little hurt…”–that sort of thing.)

But I really, really want to know: how do you do it?  Because it’s buckle-down time for Lori, and I need the help, guys.

That’s pretty much where I am right now–just trying to tell myself my story again and again (once upon a time style) in a casual way until I pick up a thread that can lead me back into the scene at hand.

Your tweets and blog have helped me a lot, so thank you!

Thank you so much! I’m thrilled to know that it helps, because writing can be wonderful-elated-happy-happy or it can be harder than childbirth, lol. But, then, you knew that.

I always enjoy your tweets, too. Maybe I should try pizza rolls to aid in the creative process. ;-)
