Lisa, you AIN’T NEVA LIED.
I struggled with writing this past weekend. I fought the urge to start Camp NaNoWriMo early even though I knew I had a crap-ton of revising to do on HAPPENS FOR A REASON.
I got to Friday night’s #writeclub later than I wanted to and then pooped out early due to a Benadryl coma.
Saturday, I finished one of the best books I’ve ever read (No lie – ELEANOR & PARK is a life-changer) and immediately wanted to burn everything I’ve ever written and stitch scarlet I’s for “impostor” onto all of my clothing.
By Sunday, I was completely frustrated. So I surrendered. I stopped fighting for control of my story and let it run the show. Suddenly, I remembered that as hard as it can be, as much work as it takes to get it done, writing is SO MUCH FUN.
