Back In The Saddle!

Happy writing is SO much better than sluggy writing. You know what I mean? Writing with flow, when the words come easily and the pages add up without much effort, beats staring at the last thing you wrote wondering what comes next and where your muse has gone.

My current WIP is happy writing. I'm loving the characters, loving the story, loving the words that are showing up on the page, the way the world is building itself. Sure, I'm in the honeymoon phase of the first three chapters but I can see most of this book in my head so I'm hoping the honeymoon lasts longer than the first three chapters. I'm hoping it lasts for 90K words.

Writing is good. Writing makes me happy. This is feeling is why I write - the pure joy of creative euphoria. Woohoo!

  7. Yep, I hear ya! It's wonderful when the Muses are there, working overtime, inspiring you. The words flow easily. The story unfolds before your eyes. Too bad, the Muses are prone to PMS and leave you hanging for long periods of time. And most of time when you need them the most.

  8. Woo whoo! I love that point when you're writing. I was in it for a couple of days, but I'm hitting a sticky part I need to just bust through before I get back to the love part, hee hee. Have fun!! I can't wait to be able to read something of yours!

  9. That's exactly how I felt over the weekend. It was like the words wouldn't stop!

    I hope your honeymoon lasts for all 90,000 words.

  10. I'm a bit burnt out on novel writing. I'll return to it soon, but right now, I'm working on several short stories. I may even finish writing another erotic novella first.

  11. SLoggy writing makes me cranky!

    I got to start something new this week and even though I'm actually ripping apart an old WIP, I'm having a blast! Definitely happy writing!
