As for Writing Wednesday, I am so stoked right now. I’ve been playing with a non-fiction book idea for a while now, a unique spin on motherhood and being an LDS mom and last night the inspiration just flowed. The muse, well, mused for me, and it was amazing. I was only able to write 1500 words, but I have a direction. I have some motivation and excitement about a project that I haven’t had in a long while. It feels good.
I always marvel a bit at how when inspiration strikes everything seems easier. I can sit in front of a page and pound out a scene, but when it’s hard, it doesn’t feel fun. Yet, when I have an idea that I’m running with, it just flows onto the page and I can hardly type fast enough to get it all down.
I wish writing was like that all the time, but then, if it was, I guess I wouldn’t appreciate the good times as much, because I wouldn’t have been through the bad times.
What’s that scripture . . . there must be opposition in all things? Yeah, even in the writing process. But I’m all for powering through until the next burst of inspiration hits because when it does, there’s no feeling like it in the world.
