You know me. I like to take dancing breaks. It helps to put me at ease. Reboot. I’ve always done it. All my life, dancing alone in my room. Still happens when I can manage it that is. Tonight I was able to dance quite freely and my current mood is that of one who has escaped a sort of prison. I created it. Twitter. I started feeling out of control. Like a kid in a candy store with more dark chocolate than I could ever have imagined. 70% or 80% will do thank you. I mean there are so many talented, creative people out there and where once I would break out into hives at the sound of the word “prompt”, I was wanting to devour every single one available. So yeah… signed out of the app on my phone and off my laptop, for a while. I need it. I have an actual day job and life to tend to. Ha! It’s a writer’s life for me but for now… I kind of need that day job.
Tonight I was so tempted to go back to Twitter so I started dancing to take my mind off of it. I also started dancing because editing my manuscript is having me a bit frustrated. I see the movie in my head but I can’t type fast enough. My thoughts pour out like a waterfall. I think I’m headed in the right direction. It is just taking forever. Still, I have a decent novel. It just needs tweaking. A few of you beta read part 1 for me a while back and I am so grateful because it helped me sort some things out. This writer thing is something otherworldly for me, like a dream. Writing makes me happy.
You know what? I’m falling in love with my story all over again, with my new eyes. I’m a bit more seasoned as a writer. (How long in this post have I been calling myself a writer?) I’ve been reading more and getting to know other writers. I feel empowered and overall like I can do something well, complete a work worthy of publishing formally. The wheels are turning. I’m learning to organize myself better because I’m not at all organized. I also feel like I worry too much. I’m working on that. Still – Mel thoughts get the better of me sometimes. It’s all good and most of the time I just dance it off.
I’ma keep editing this baby. I’ma just keep going. It’s all I can and want to do.
Hugs to you all!
