I’m at a funny place right now. I’ve begun querying and recognize it’s time to get busy on another project. Dutifully, I started working on something new, only to get stuck about three thousand words into it. I know the bare-bones of the story, but none of the tissue and sinew, and that’s ground me to a halt. In the words of author Lynne Griffin, “Thinking is writing, too.” It’s time to let things percolate a bit.
Thankfully, Santa brought me a new camera for Christmas. I confess. Ever since we started using digital cameras, I've barely paid attention to apertures and shutters speed, and instead have relied on automatic settings. That, and my environment. In truth, I can't go wrong with that. But still, in my mind, I'm kind of a phony as a photographer, and I've decided to see if I can change that. So, instead of pacing the floors when words are a struggle, I’ve been out watching the sun rising...and setting.
Words are awesome, but pictures can be kind of cool, too. I just have to wake up in time.
