If you’ve ever spent any considerable amount of time pounding away at a story then you know the frustration that comes with getting stuck on some idea you’re trying to convey. You writers know what Im talking about. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to put things down in the right way.
On the other hand, there are the times when you cannot seem to get anything wrong. These are the spots in your writing where you are hammering away at the keys and it seems like every effing word you put to the page is solid gold. I like to call this writing sweet spot, “The Flow.”
Right now I am up to my temporal bones in some serious Flow, my friends. I started working on a new story on February 19th just for poops and chuckles, and as of today I hit about thirteen K’s worth of words. Awesome, right? It’s even extra special sweet because I got into the thing without any expectations about where it would go. I just set out to write something down in those rare moments when I wasn’t busy with school work or changing diapers and here I am with a story that I’m actually pretty stoked about. I have no idea how long The Flow is going to stick with me, but for now I’m just taking the time to appreciate a good story.
