I found this post thoroughly intriguing and poetic Janeen. Thank you so much for sharing your inner musings on the process. Something very similar happens for me. Other times, ideas race in and out of my mind like cheeky children at play. I am always on the go trying to tie them down.
i loved your image of fleeting/fleeing ideas like cheeky children!
Thanks for the post Janine. Enjoyment when writing is the key I think. Geting published is nice but every story has value, published or not.
True, Bernadette, but publishing adds the sweetener for me.
I loved reading of your process, Janeen. 🙂 Tres interesting, and inspiring. xx
Thanks, Sheryl. I enjoyed writing it. x
such a refreshing post- you are amazing. Lately I’ve had to discipline myself like a child to sit down and write and today I’m pleased to say I wore 500 words of a chapter book that began many moons ago.
Keep encouraging us with your words!
oops wrote not wore- although one nearly has to ‘wear’ each word to get it fastened to the page!!! Ha!!
Hi Lorraine. So pleased you were able to discipline yourself. 500 words is more than I sometimes write, when I’m just dipping my toe in the water! x
A lovely piece Janeen. specially your acknowledgement that what works for one book may not happen the same way for another one. Every one is different. That’s part of the fun!
Yes, and a lesson for me, Libby, was not getting hung up on the fact that one way DOESN’T necessarily work every time.
I’m glad you’re doing this! 🙂 Sounds like great fun!! I’ll be glad if you see my blog! http://picturetheidea.blogspot.mx
