I have never been one of those writers who
sits and stares
not knowing what to write.
Today I was looking at writing the second half of a story
I began over three years ago
and haven’t returned to
I took the first 50 thousand words I’d written by hand
and typed them up…
I felt like I was a reader learning this story
for the first time.
While the characters and the plot
because I’d been disconnected
from it for so long I didn’t know how to begin again.
I caught myself staring
at that blank
So, I shut the laptop,
pulled out a notebook and pen
(just as I had written the first 50K words)
and began plotting,
relearning this world.
The trepidation I felt was unnerving and strange
I’m glad it’s over now 🙂
Have you ever faltered before writing something?
