Struggling, but I see a light

Maybe I should change my tag line from “Author looking for her place between romance and suspense” to “Woman looking for her place between life and writing”.

I have been struggling (for years, actually) to make time to write, or more accurately, revise this book.  Revising seems to take a lot more energy, focus and time than the original writing.

To tell the truth, I’m terrified to start a new book.  Maybe that’s why finishing this one is taking so dang long.  I’m scared of learning that I really don’t know what I’m doing, even though I claim that I’m learning so much.  Learning is failing, though.  I know this.

But recently I discovered Lisa Cron and her books, Wired for Story and Story Genius.

One word:  TRANSFORMATIVE

She spoke to my writing soul and it made sense and it stuck and it got me un-stuck!  I have made more progress in the past few weeks than I have in the past few years.  Glory Hallelujah!
