In the Flow

Sunday.  ROW80 check-in time.  This week has floated by and was so incredibly pleasant.  I want to learn to write this way, in this frame of mind, all the time.  This.  This is what was missing in my writing life.  This pleasure in playing with the words and images and ideas.  I am loving this!

I haven't decided yet if the bookending technique is helping me or not yet.  I think it will be most helpful when I'm struggling to show up at the page.  That's not happening at the moment.

Right now, I'm even dreaming about my story world.  Most mornings this week I've woken up with new ideas about my story roaming around my head, so I'm not having a hard time getting to the writing.  I have been doing my writing later in the evening, closer to bedtime, so that might have something to do with the dream writing.  I'm planning to keep doing that as often as I'm able, because I'm really enjoying waking up with my story in my head.


I'm going to do a writing session tonight since I missed one on Thursday.  For now, I'm keeping the weekends optional and sticking with the Monday-Friday writing schedule.

See you all at Wednesday's check-in!

I agree, can be pervasive. I do wake up sometimes with story ideas in my head for my novel. And since I've started doing some Flash Fictions those themes a rattling around in there too.

Mike, I might have to play with some flash fiction to add to the mix. Every time I see you mention it, I'm intrigued.

Shan, thank you! You always leave such nice comments that make me feel encouraged and supported. I love your comments! :)
