Breaks in writing 

So I went on a writing bender and welll…..now I’m burnt…..out…..stuck…..writers block. Whatever. I’ve found that these stumbling blocks aren’t actually about my writing process but the interruptions in the flow. Let me explain. I’m chugging alone, the stuff is flowing through me like BUTTAH…..then it happens. I get stressed over something, someone dumps their problems on my door and or I’m off in another direct and the flow just slows to a trickle. Life happens. Oh I could go way off the grid, isolate my self, realign my chi and get at it. But is that good, healthy, stable? … Continue reading Breaks in writing

Veered off….

I’ve not posted in a while as I was having a relationship with my laptop. I’ve been inspired to write and instead of fighting it, I went with it; like a boat drifting with the current.
