See? It does work! Persistence pays. Dedication works. Time stops….
Are you a writer of books? If you are, you are all too aware it can take seemingly endless, difficult months, even years to write a novel. How long, you say? Ten years? Maybe not that long, but the fact is, some books take even longer.
Until the story is told, time warps, reverses,stops; the mind is floating, going down the drain with useless prose, questionable dialogue, mundane tasks, terrible ideas tossed, trips to town, flat tires, boring company, and missed appointments, — so back to the grind at home instead. “Is it done yet”? Is the question of the year.
Dull, tired, uninterested…. have a snooze instead, scraps of paper balled up, tossed at the half-empty coffee mug. The absent muse smiles wickedly from a nice holiday in Hawaii as fat from the floating cream on the stale coffee wicks up into the paper wad, making it interesting, translucent and
yeccht…,oh, man. I’ll get back to that. Maybe. Write some Flash in the Pan for a bit instead. Hot stuff. Short. Only 100 words. Maybe 150. Maybe only 50. I don’t mind short stories. Back to the novel...
Don’t forget writer’s block, blank screens, oh-oh, why is the monitor smoking, tired eyes, now the coffee tastes like paper, emptying of the mind into the keyboard, hopefully not onto, like that sticky coffee with double cream. IT tastes terrible. —Oh, I forgot, it’s cold. It’s got paper floating in it. Out it goes. Stare at the reflections in the Zen rock garden…..Snooze.
Ah....new, hot coffee. the new hot fiction shapes up. About 310 pages or more…. . Time stops……
