So, what do we authors do when our feelings have been drained and our fight is no longer with us? What about when we're so tired from living in someone else's world of drama and, as a writer, need an escape? I'm not sure. I sometimes take some time off. But, then I'm left with the guilt of leaving my characters in limbo. After all, they want to move forward as much as I do. I often think going on to another project will work. However, I hate starting something without finishing the last. Even in home improvements one room gets done at a time. So, what to do? I say push forward! And, that's exactly what I have been doing even though I've been at a loss for about two months, now. The holiday season and the snow we've been pounded with has taken its toll. But, today I'm feeling the need to mess up my office like it hasn't been in awhile. The fifty degree weather outside is calling my inner voices out and I can't help but be happy because I've missed them talking to me. I knew it was only a matter of time till my muse would waken from her slumber. Unfortunately, she going to be pissed. Like any good boss, she'll have to keep me in overtime until I get caught up with all I'm behind on.
LOL My teenager just came into the room and asked who I was talking to.
"No one." I replied.
"Yeah, that's what I figured." he told me while shaking his head!
Oh, life is good. And, I'm glad that they all find me entertaining. After all, who better to brighten your day than a crazy author who talks to herself?
Have a Sparkling Day!
