What Writing Can Look Like
Writing doesn't always look pretty.

Yes, there are those who can sit at Starbucks or McDonald's from 8 am until 5 pm, Monday through Friday, banging out chapter after chapter of wordsmith genius that can be shared with the world in less than 6 months.

Then there are those of us learning the cycles of our writing lives.

From the time I first plunged into the blogger scene and donned my writing hat, I danced about in the long spring and summer of that part of my writing cycle. Then, after publishing Fable Ranger, Summons, life loopy-looed a different way, ushering in a long fall and even longer winter in my writing cycle.

So I empathize with the tree in this picture, a creature of nature reaching and stretching to the heavens, branches once thick with foliage, but now barren and skeletal, barely clearing through the fog.

But it is happening.

Spring is returning.

Slowly, but it is happening in my writing cycle.

It felt good adding conent to Fable Ranger II, the follow up to my MG fairy tale mashup story. Casey is in Lorealia. Dovetail is at his schemes once again.

But this time, it is a family affair.

So what about you, where are you in the cycle of your writing life?

Glad you are getting back into it. Still waiting for my season to pass.

Alex, I understand where you're coming from, my friend.

Yay for getting back into writing. I'm in a winter season when it comes to writing, but I'm hoping to push into spring soon.

Angela Brown said...

I'm sure you'll be back at it faster than expected.

I'm right there with you. I keep thinking, one day, I will find the magic bullet.

I'm glad to see you're back. I've read a few of your books and enjoyed them!

So glad you're finding your writing spring up again. (LOL, sorry. Had to say it.) Seriously, I know how hard you work, and I also know how hard it can be to get that writing groove on. I think it's a matter of just doing it, even for a few minutes a day. Journaling usually helps me.

I wish you well with your writing cycle. These days I often feel like a hamster in a wheel or as though I'm stationary on a exercise bicycle.
