Neglecting a WIP means playing catch-up
I’m back after a lovely family vacation in Florida. Quality time with family, sensational visits to the beach, strong waves, lean surfers, clear water. Fishing, and actually catching a fish (small, and we threw it back). Doing the Disney and falling a dozen floors in the Tower of Terror elevator. Rockin’ rollercoaster, yeah. Forgetting my age and, for just a few days, shedding my cloak of responsibilities and having fun.
Now, it’s back to work, and my WIP has cooled off. I’m on the road back today, studying my storyboard, re-reading chapters. It’s Soup Writing Day and I’m getting ready for a three-hour session with my critique partners. Writing together, live, is a great way to guarantee fresh writing. Because we’ve committed to this time together every Thursday, there’s no avoiding it. We will sit together at the same table, at the same time, and we will write.
There’s something mystical about group writing. It feels as if we’re all swimming in the same gently flowing river – maybe floating on a comfortable raft under soft sunshine. I love it. I recommend it.
Wishing you a day is filled with joy and creativity.
