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!
