I’ve done some extensive editing of my newer work in order to have it ready to go to the right market. Now, I’m ready to take one of my partially formed ideas and begin work on something entirely new, but nothing is taking off…bit of a block after editing, it seems.
I know from experience that trying to force something only results in something absolutely horrible…and NOT in a good way.
No, what works best for me is to do something entirely different, not related to writing at all. It’s during those times that the best ideas have popped in out of nowhere, and the key is to scribble something down to capture the gist of the idea, so I can expand on it later on.
Just wanted to let the Muse know the coffee is pretty good today…
