“Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.”
- Gene Fowler
The last few months have been taken up with settling back into work and book promotion, at the expense of my own writing. I rather thought that would happen, and so at the end of August, while wrapping up my sabbatical I absolved myself of all worries about not writing fiction for awhile. Hung up that hat and got on with other things that needed my full attention. Any fiction that popped up would be a bonus, I decided.
It’s been a good break, during which I have attempted the following:
- Read writers who inspire me.
- Read on themes related to the piece(s) I’ve been working on.
- Find my muse between the pages.
Well, the muse leapt out from between Galore‘s early pages, and so far, 2010 has been a good writing year. I have a few other things on the go - writing this, finishing that, and revising the other.
PS – I wonder if Dear Reader has ever considered the typoes one can get tangled up in when trying to type “unstuck” in a hurry?
